I can’t believe we made it until February 11 before having any snow we can play in…pretty unusual for southwest Ohio. It’s still not much, maybe an inch or so, but you better believe the kids were out in it! (Heck, we were out right after breakfast because I was afraid it would melt in the sun if we waited too long.)
The kids had a few turns down the hill on the sled… Then the toddler wanted to build a snowman.
We gave it a shot, but the snow was just too powdery soft; it just wouldn’t make a snowball. Of course, being 2, he didn’t understand that. Thankfully he was happy with the 2 inch tall snowman I was able to build by huffing and puffing warm air on the mini snowballs to get them to stick. He held that little snowman all around the yard while being pulled on the sled, and then he wanted to bring it inside, too.
We watched it turn into a little puddle on the kitchen table while we had our hot chocolate.
And after lunch we made marshmallow snowmen – little guy actually got 2/3 of his finished before eating it this time!
What about you? Have you had much snow where you live this year?
And if you’re looking for some crafts to go with the snow theme, check out this cute cotton ball snowman and our snowflake crafts!
Absolutelyl NOT! We are having very strong and cold winds, and it is freezing outside but no snow. Freezing to us in NC is probably anything under 50degrees. LOL
LOL – Here anything near the 40’s or 50’s is unseasonably warm… I guess you don’t get much snow in NC. Hope it warms up for you soon!
Just flurries so far. We’re supposed to get something tomorrow night, though, so we’ll see!
We didn’t get much, but I was glad we at least got something before the end of winter!
