It's Snow Use....

We've been enjoying freezing temperatures and some long awaited snow here this week. It's been great for cosying up in the house in pyjamas with hot chocolate in between dashing out to measure the thickness of the ice and the depth of the snow.

We've watched the birds and observed their footprints in the garden as well as spotting the different size prints of all the neighbours' dogs as we walk up and down the street. I love these simple winter pleasures 😊

We've not had enough snow quite just yet for sledging, but my kids live in hope. I think I'll stay home and make sure the fire is lit and the kettle is on for when they get back 😉

There are so many ways to make good use of the snow. Freezing water-filled balloons is one Boykin wants to try again tonight and I'm thinking of hanging my towels out overnight to dry (or not) to find out whether or not it's true that frost softens them. I also want to try putting leaves and berries in water filled bowls to make ice hangings for my garden. I've seen them on pinterest and they look so pretty :)

I'd love to hear about your favourite snow activities. Please leave a comment below or drop me a line 🙋

There are Picture Book Explorers just perfect for this time of year and this kind of weather. You can have fun with the art activity in Greyfriars Bobby, or enjoy exploring frost with The Best Christmas Present in the World. Or take full advantage of the weather and explore snow in a very hands-on way with Picture Book Explorers ~ Black Dog.
