With our outside world covered in a blanket of white, I find there are days I feel lost as to how to keep my girls occupied or to coax them outside.
On this day ~ it was snowing those big beautiful flakes and I wanted to get us out the door into the awaiting winter wonderland.
So I made some "snow catchers"~ a great way for them to get a close up look at the uniqueness and beauty of each snowflake (and get them outside ;)!
To create I cut out squares of cardboard and glued on some black felt. I then glued (with a glue gun) on a large popsicle stick for a handle...
The girls admired
and ran around trying to "catch" as many as they could!
It lasted awhile but then they moved onto more snow fun...
sliding through it
tumbling and rolling in it
and playing blizzard (our version of a snowball fight when the snow isn't packing snow) in it ~
a favorite way to get out the cabin fever crazies!
Looking forward to the spring ~ but for the time being I am searching out the joys in winter ...
continually discovering the magic it holds.
Any fun winter activity ideas you could pass my way?
Here's to staying warm, endless cups of tea, snuggling by the fire and frolicking in fresh snowfalls.
