Oh blustery winter! While Parker thought that the snow outside was fun the first few days .. he is now just irritated with boots, snow pants, bulky coats and gloves making walking and moving difficult. So today we brought the magic of snow inside. I didn't even go outside but rather opened a window and filled up my bucket from the porch roof. Fantastic!
I made some simple water colors with food coloring, gave him a few paint brush options and cups for building ... and we played until our hands were about to freeze off. The water and warmth of inside make the snow perfectly wet for building and construction. It was simple clean up with the tarp and throwing the used snow in the bathtub. I highly recommend giving this activity a try with your toddler!
