Snow Cups!

Most kids love snow cones and Italian Ice treats in the summer.   For an easy winter treat give snow cups a try!   I scooped some fresh, clean snow off the deck and poured some cranberry juice over the top.    My kids thought it was the perfect afternoon treat.  They enjoyed eating their flavored snow cups outside where it would not melt.

Outside Snow Art!

Do you have snow where you live? We have snow and plenty of it. We had a snow storm a few days ago which gave us a snow day on Friday and plenty of snow for the weekend. I filled some plastic spray bottles (I bought new bottles from a dollar store) with water and food coloring. I gave the kids some rules such as no spraying people, clothing or anything other than the snow and the trees. Then I let them loose in the yard to go make some snow art! I helped them build a snow fort earlier in the day so that made for some extra special fun. They even painted a snow chair in the fort. My kids and several neighbor friends joined in the outdoor snow art fun and it kept them all busy for a long time! Easy art with no mess / clean-up and everyone was happy.
