What activities can you do in the snow?

We always love to make snowmen and igloos. I feel like those two options are always the first and second things we do once it becomes a winter wonderland. However, adding new snow game options is always welcome.

How do you play with snow inside?

Although I brought you plenty of options for outdoor play, you can bring some snow inside using plastic containers and continue to have fun with snow but from the comfort of your home.

Consider using coloring dye and shaping tools until everything melts. You could also add glitter! Just remember that you are on a timeline.

What is snow paint?

Have you heard of snow paint? Fill a squeeze bottle with food coloring and some water and use it to paint all over fresh piles of snow. So easy!

Do you have any snow games you’d like to add? Would love to hear!
