We set up at our window bench with a couple blankets and just gazed outside. It didn't take long for us to think of some other things to do. We painted snowflakes on our windows with washable paints and Q-tips. We snuggled. We made hot chocolate and danced around making silly songs about the snow....
"Snow! Snow! We love the snow! We love to watch it blow and blow.
The snow is white, it's so bright. But that's all right cuz we love the snow!
Onto your coat you should hold, because it's cold, so I'm told.
But that's okay cuz we like to play out in the snow all day!"
It wasn't long before those big flakes tempted us outside for a walk to the park. I know the cold and snow isn't for everyone, but there is absolutely nothing like walking in the falling snow. And it's a perfect opportunity to connect with my boys through the magic of it all.
