Snowed In... Part II

Fast Facts: Information for Parents & Parents-To-Be
Snowed In... Part IIChildren 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 Tic-Tac-Toe
Grab twigs to form a tic-tac-toe board. Use rocks, twigs, or anything you can find to play!

Snow Painting
Drop 5-6 drops of food coloring (using different colors) into several water bottles with sprayers. Fill the bottles with water; cover and shake to mix. Take outside and "paint" beautiful works of art!

Saucer Tug-of-War
Form a line in the snow; use snow paint, snowballs or a snow wall to make the line. Divide into two equal teams (or do this one-on-one), taking your saucer sled with you. Grab either end of a long rope and pull. The team that doesn't cross the line wins. 

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
