10 Fun Things to do in the Snow – Outside!

Share:

Winter is coming and these fun things to do in the snow will come in handy!

Whether we like it or not. Snow will eventually fall [at least for us up north... we're in Iowa, so its bound to happen].

It always seems hard to get outside in the cold [it especially will this winter with a newborn], but the older boys still will want to get out there and play in the snow!

Since the sandbox will be covered… what can the kids do outside?

10 Fun Things to do in the Snow - Outside!

I’ve made a list 10 fun outdoor snow activities that I want to do with the kids this winter. Our winter/snow bucket list, I guess.

Get dressed warm and get outside!

10 Fun things to do in the snow – Outside!

  1. Go sledding! Get a sled, make a sled out of cardboard, and just go!
  2. Build a snowman. Roll some balls, big or small. Build a snowman together. Find rocks for eyes, twigs for arms, and wrap him up warm with a hat and scarf!
  3. Have a snowball fight! Show the kids how to make a snowball. Have target practice. Set up something to throw at and let the kids get some practice in throwing!
  4. Build a snow fort. Pack the walls together to build a safe place for hide out! We have a brick mold builder that the boys use in the sandbox and for snow!
  5. While you’re out shoveling the driveway or sidewalk, let the kids help! Or have them make their own paths… maybe a snow maze!
  6. Stomp through the snow and make footprints!
  7. Instead of making your own footprints, look for animal prints! Do you find rabbit prints? Squirrels? Deer? What’s in your backyard?
  8. Get creative outside in the cold! Paint the snow! Make it colorful!
  9. After a fresh snowfall, go lay out in it and make some snow angels together. Make a whole family!
  10. And, one that will surely be a hit with my boys. Load. Dump. Scoop. Pour. Do it in the snow!

When you’re getting outside in the cold weather, be sure to dress warm and take precautions! And be prepared to warm them up when you get inside! Have a cup of hot chocolate waiting for them with little marshmallows on top!

    i would love to win this because I have very itchy eczema patches and I’d love to try the Neosporin Eczema Essentials Kit.

    It would be great for me because I actually have eczema and the winter is here causing havoc on my skin. The winter is when mine breaks out the most and it is already driving me crazy now! I have tried so many other things and nothing has worked yet. Thanks!

    - I am kasha i lives in uk and i was in a serious relationship with my ex guy for three good years.. One day we were in a dinner party, we had a little misunderstanding which lead to a Quarrel and he stood up and left me at the dinner party. i try to call him but he was not picking my calls so after than i contacted my brother and told him about it,my brother so much love me that he had to see him on my behalf,he told my brother that it is over between us.. Then i contacted a friend of mine that had this similar experience and she directed me to one of the spiritual diviner ([email protected]).at first i thought it was not going to be possible and i contacted him i was ask to come up with a little requirement,so i did what i was ask to do, after 3 days i was in my office when my ex guy called me and was asking me to forgive him and come back to him. i was very surprise it was like a dream to me,so ever since we have been happily married with one kid my lovely baby(Ceslav)…i wish you the best of luck…
