Aaah, glorious, wonderful snow days! When you're a kid, of course, you don't have any of the worries that come along with snow....slippery roads, bumper-to-bumper traffic, shoveling, snowblowing, heat bills, ice dams, and more shoveling. Then shoveling again when the snow plow comes by. When I lived on a cul-de-sac as a kid, we made the most awesome snow forts by hollowing out the giant pile the snow plow left!
My kids aren't in school yet, so we can pretty much have a snow day whenever we want. Today I have a feeling most schools are either closed or had a late start. Here's what we did this morning...
Sammy, who has no concept of winter toys vs summer toys, still wants to ride his trike every day. I had to shovel the driveway (again) anyway so I made him some "roads" to maneuver his trike on.
We also had a good snowball fight, of course!
This photo was from last week...while playgrounds are pretty hard to use in the winter, the swings were still use-able at the playground on the end of our street. Both boys had a blast in the swings, even though it was quite the challenge just walking over to them!
Other things you can do with the kids in the snow....
- Make snow angels
- Build a snow man (we did that last week!)
- Go sledding
- Make snow ice cream
