Snow Caves

This activity does require quite a bit of snow, but if you have enough, this is an activity that will keep the kiddos occupied for hours! They can have a contest, my kids like to do boys against girls, to see who can create the best cave. This particular cave even included a mailbox!

Snowball Fights

Snowball fights are my sons favorite! Unless of course, those snowballs have ice in them, so be careful!

He was a trooper though and stayed strong to follow through with the battle.

Snow ice cream is super delicious and super simple! It only takes a couple of ingredients and it’s so simple that the kids can make it on their own. You can find my kids favorite recipe right here.
