Snow Day Activities

Here are some suggestions for having fun in the snow:

  • Make a snow angel - great for exercising your arms, legs and core muscles
  • Build a snow sculpture - it does not have to be a snowman!
  • Go for a winter walk and search for footprints in the snow - who or what do you think made the footprints?
  • Look for icicles - how do you think they were formed?
  • Can you write your name in the snow?
  • Try painting in the snow - simply mix snow and liquid paint in a pot then off you go!
  • Hide some objects in the snow then try to find them - don't forget to wear gloves for this!
  • Target practise - line up a set of objects then try to hit them using a snow ball
  • We would love to see what you have been doing in the snow; why not post your photos on Evidence Me?Enter text...
