Snow activities

Here are some activities you can have in the snow. I'm sure you all done sledging, snowball fights and build snowman already. Enjoy!

Toss snowballs.

Have a snowball-throwing contest! Make a target by creating a bright circle in the snow with colored water in a squirt bottle. You can also paint a bull's-eye target on a piece of cardboard, giving each colored ring a point value. Attach it to a tree, and keep score as the kids try to hit the target with snowballs.

Playing pin the smile on the snowman Pass out chocolate cookies, then blindfold each child and let him try to get the mouth, eyes, and buttons in place.

Play tic-tac-snow. Two players go for the championship in this classic game. Use criss-crossed sticks and other items as game pieces.

Now the next one sounds like fun but messy.

Make a snow volcano.

Remember that old-school science-fair project? This snowy version uses the same explosion-inducing ingredients—all of which you probably have in your pantry.

What You'll Need: A small, narrow plastic cup or old pill bottle, baking soda, dishwashing liquid, red food coloring, vinegar

What To Do:

  1. Nestle the cup in the center of a pile of snow and mound more snow around it to form a volcano shape. (Leave the top of the cup exposed.)

  2. Add a few spoonfuls of baking soda, one spoonful of dishwashing liquid, and some food coloring to the cup.

  3. Now pour in a big splash of vinegar and watch the eruption!

Make snow monsters.

Winter Activities Make Snow Monsters They’re more fun than your basic snowman and even easier to create: If you got use sone glow sticks then get your outdoor gear on and make big mounds of snow just before dusk. Poke two holes for the monster’s eyes and place a lit-up glow stick in each hole. (Depending on the type you get, you might need to use more than one per eye.) Cover the hole lightly with snow, so you can still see its glowing eyes.

Make the snow their canvas.

Fill up squirt bottles with water and two or three drops of food coloring (the concentrated dye makes for extra-vibrant colors), then shake them up. Adjust the nozzle flow to spray narrower for lines or wider for a mist. Your kids can paint freestyle, create tic-tac-toe or hopscotch boards, decorate their snow fort, or color snowballs for an epic battle.

And don't forget to feed your birds outside. Build a bird feeder for our birds. Lots of great ideas on the Internet. Or your looking for some more indoor activities have a look on
