Snowy Activities that Everyone Will Love

Snow only falls a few times a year, some years more than others. Sometimes we look at snow as a setback from our daily lives, as if snow is taking away excitement from our plans. In reality, it’s the total opposite! Spending a day in the snow can (and will) bring joy, adventure, and playful fun. Make this winter a rememberable one by making new snow traditions that everyone in your family will love! 

It’s always fun to do things like sledding, building snow angels, building snowmen, and having snowball fights. It would be even more fun if your family took the time to build their own forts in the snow and have snowball fights from there! Everyone involved will feel notice their competitive sides bursting out from within, and your family will fight a snow battle that they’ll never forget.

Another fun activity to complete in the snow is creating and running through snow mazes and/or snow obstacle courses. Have someone shovel a path as a snow maze, and set some fake traps, and let the kids run loose through the maze to see who finishes first. The winner can have a warm mug of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows! If mazes are not your family’s cup of tea, create an obstacle course with different aspects of snow. Create the course as creative as possible! An example obstacle course could start out with participants sledding down a hill, then making five snow angels in a row, and finishing off the course with a snowman! 

A cute idea for kids to play in the snow is a game of tic-tac-snow! With a stick (or a finger), create the tic-tac-toe layout in the snow, and give the two players different objects to use. Your daughter can use rocks as her symbols and your son can use sticks, for example. The more creative you are, the more memorable the experience will be! 
Snowy days can be filled with joy if you spend the day the right way! Enjoy all the snow days to come, and remember to have fun!
