Snow Day! Check out these 15 totally cool things to do with snow.
The snow is everywhere! Some parts of the US are totally used to having a winter wonderland in their backyard, down here in the southeast and even parts of the northeast are not used to all of the snow that was dumped on them and has left a lot of us searching for cool things to do with snow!
My children had a blast with all of the outdoor winter activities that comes along with a good snowfall. They built snowmen, made snow angels, had a snowball fight, and went sledding! All of the neighbors were out and they enjoyed the time off of school with their friends.
We love science and experimenting and this colder weather and snowfall has brought along a unique opportunity for us to have some fun with awesome winter science experiments as well.
Turns out, the cold temperatures aren’t leaving us anytime soon, we are on snow day #2 with the schools canceled and have the weekend full of snow too! It’s time to start thinking outside of the box and coming up with some totally cool things to do with snow, before it all melts.
