3. Go outside and make snow angels, snowmen (or snow dinosaurs) and ice sculptures. Have fun! My older two shoveled trails and went on trips in the front yard. Also made mini snowpeople and snowstones.
4. Winter is a good time to go to art and science museums. Journal, draw or make up stories inspired by what you saw.
5. Have a tea party. Bake scones, get out the lace tablecloth, decorate with tissuepaper flowers and name cards, serve on nice china. You can pretend to have teatime with the Queen (Sir I. and Miss M. loved this one–they even made a crown and throne for the Queen).
6. Do science experiments. My preschooler and k’er never get tired of melting snow and freezing water. We’ve been studying polar animals and today we made “blubber gloves” using shortening and tried them out in ice water. Sir I. wishes he were a walrus so he could have a blubber layer and go live in the Arctic!
