10 Fun Things to do in the Snow – Outside!

WinterAll Ages147 Comments

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 (affiliate link) 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 had no idea Neosporin made anything for Eczema! My six year old has struggled with horrible eczema all of his life, and we have tried so many different products with less than ideal results. I just want to squall in the winter when it gets so bad and his skin cracks and bleeds. I would give anything to be able to take it from him. Neosporin only puts their name on stuff that WORKS, so you can bet I am looking for these products the next time I am at the drug store!

    My family could certainly use this! My son suffers terribly from eczema and my husband and I both have terribly dry skin in the winter. This could help us get through the winter without any of the skin pain that we always have to deal with! Thanks for the chance!

    I would love to win this kit. My nephew has eczema on his arms and none of the products my sister has tried on him seem to work. I know Neosporin has great products for cuts and scrapes but had no idea they have a line of lotions. Maybe this will finally be the solution for my nephews dry skin dilemma.

    I’d love to win because of the 5 of us in our family, 2 have eczema and 2 have super dry skin that probably borders on eczema. I’d love to try these out to see if they bring some relief.
