As snow blankets the country, there is so much fun to be had outdoors with your littles ones, here are just a few ideas...
Giant snowball: Compact a small snowball and have your little ones roll it around the garden so that it gets bigger and bigger. See how big they can get before they can no longer roll it. Afterwards, turn your giant snowball into a snowman, or...
Snow sculptures: snowmen must have been around forever, but why not build other snow models too? A family of snow ducks, or a snow reindeer? Why not built a boat or train to play in?
Follow the leader: walk around the garden or a park and have your little ones mimic every move. The snow adds another element of fun as they can step in your footprints so that it looks like there is only one person.
Snow messages: challenge older children to run around in the snow and spell their name or write a message. View the results from an upstairs window and see how accurate they were.
Snow golf: Put a plastic mixing bowl out in the snow to be your golf hole. Use a plastic ball (ball pit ones are perfect) and find something to use as a club (what about one of daddy's welly's?!). Take turns to hit the ball from a starting point over and into the hole.
Have fun, and remember to wrap up warm!
