Now that the holidays are behind us, children look forward to some winter-time fun. When snow arrives, head outside and make the most of the slippery white stuff before it disappears. In addition to snow angels, skating, sledding and snowball fights, there’s building men – and beasts – out of snow. Be creative and go beyond the usual snow man. Try farm animals like the snow pig below. Or make sea creatures, dinosaurs, whatever catches your fancy. Don’t forget to take pictures of these snow sculptures before they melt.
No snow? Try making the stick snowman craft below. All you need are craft sticks, white and black acrylic paints, tacky glue, googly eyes, dry beans or buttons for the mouth and a piece of pipe cleaner for a nose. Let them hang in the windows until winter is done.
Whether you make snow creatures indoors or out, finish off the day with a warm cup of hot cocoa and some cookies. You’ll be making memories of the best kind.
