Snow Days

This week we had our first (and hopefully last) big snow of the season. Many other places in the country have had a ton of snow days already, but this week was our first and our second. On Tuesday, it snowed the entire day, and on Wednesday, everyone had to dig out!

On our first snow day, we brought snow inside. We laid out towels on the floor and got to playing with bins of snow.

There was food coloring and cookie cutters involved. Then we made actual cookies too.

And played some Mancala.

We also made these guys:

On day 2, it was outside to help Daddy shovel. All the neighbors were out at the same time!

Simon thought a pirate hat would be a good plan. Then he got cold.

Check out those icicles!

We spent that afternoon with friends, which was a good time for all. And yesterday it was back to school! So, how many snow days have you had this year?

We have had more then I can even count now and seriously no end in sight. Just can't believe how much snow we have had this past year so far. But I loved the indoor snow activities and seriously so creative :)

I normally love winter and have been excited that we got a real winter down here this year, but lately I'm over it. It's been one winter storm/polar vortex after another!

The cookies look fantastic. I'd like to believe it was our last big snow, but around here, it can go until late April. Horrible!

Dara said...

meh. I hope it ends! I can be creative for one day but not for many more than that!

Dara said...

yeah, this winter has been crazy! we've been very lucky here.

last year it snowed on may 1! not a lot, but still.

we like bringing the snow inside, but once we have more than 1-2 snow days I get sick of it!
