Yesterday we got about 8" and the electricity briefly went out but we had fun playing.
NOW we are gearing up for the first HUGE snowfall since we moved here. On Tuesday it supposed to snow between 18 - 24"! Wow, that's a lot of snow in one day. So I've got a house full of food, a wood pile full of wood for our wood stove, stockpile of water, and I'm gathering ideas of how to entertain the littles. Here's my Pinterest list of ideas!
This post from Hands on as we Grow has quite an array of ideas. Not all are using actual snow but, hey, ideas are ideas.
Bring our construction toys to destruct? GREAT idea we can do it will dirt, why not with snow?
Red Ted Art has a FABULOUS collection of ideas for snow activities. Only problem most are time consuming. Preschooler are more about instant gratification but some are worth trying.
Painting snow? Yes, my kids will probably end up mostly covered in the paint themselves but if they have fun AND are entertained for awhile? Works for me!
Terrible photo but great idea. Snow volcano. 'Nough said.
These are a few of the ideas I might try. Do you have any suggestions for preschooler snow play?
