Let's face it, there is snow piled up everywhere!  I've heard that we've had over 54 days of snow this winter.  That's a lot of snow and combined with the frigid temperatures all of the snow has been hanging around and piling up.  Sledding is great! I am sure there has been a lot of sledding and skiing going on this winter.  A few snowman have moved into my neighborhood and I've seen a snow fort or two, and I am pretty sure my penguins aren't going anywhere for a while.  

 So how else can we play with all of this snow?

  1. I have seen many 'pins' on Pinterest for snow candy making just like Laura and Mary Ingalls made in Little House in the Big Woods
  2. You can bring some snow indoors in a large tub and create a small igloo or condo for your action figures.
  3. Grab a few friends and play Fox and Geese.
  4. Make snowcones with freshly fallen snow.
  5. Stay warm and dry indoors while making mini snowmen in a tub of snow.
  6. Use snow as a canvas and paint the snow using watercolor paints or squirt bottles and spray bottles filled with colored water.
  7. Play Tic Tac Toe in the snow by drawing the grid and using sticks and pinecones in place of X's and O's.

These are just a few ideas to get you started.  So how do you play in the snow?
