Fun snowy day activities!

Snowed InChildren in Snow
Don't let the snow get you down. When the kids say they're bored or get tired of building snowmen, send them outside to try out one of these fun activities:

Snow Hurdles
Using a sand bucket, pack in snow to make a course of hurdles. After the course is complete, have them jump over the hurdles or do relays.

Castle in the Snow
Using a sand bucket, make a castle out of snow. Don't forget the moat!

Treasure Hunt
Freeze colored water in ice cube trays to make "jewels." Hide them throughout the yard and have your little pirates go on a scavenger hunt. For older kids, make a treasure map from crumpled construction paper, with "X" marking the spot of the treasure!

I am the mom of 4 wonderful kids, 3 boys and 1 girl. Looking at them, you know I have had many years working with and enriching the lives of children. I have an Associates (Magna Cum Laude) in Business Management, and a Bachelors in Early childhood Development and Education with a concentration in Child Psychology. I have almost 20 years in the Early Childhood field, and loving every minute of it! You can visit my site here
