Snow days!

We're in the midst of the big snowstorm of 2012 here in the northwest! So far we have about 12 inches, and it's still coming down.

On Sunday, Kade went sledding and made this GIANT 7 foot tall snowman with his aunt and daddy. But, I've been trying to think of fun ways Kade can enjoy the snow by himself. We don't have any neighbor kids, and I can't take a newborn baby outside in this weather to play with him myself, so Kade is really lonely!

We didn't have any carrots or small rocks for his face, so we used a rotten banana and bottle caps!


Here are some of the things I've suggested to him to have fun by himself:

~Fill a spray bottle with colored water and spray designs onto the snow
~Pack bowls with snow and make bricks to build
~Write or draw in the snow by making huge letters or shapes with his tracks
~Use a ruler and measure different areas to see where the snow is the deepest

Do you have any more ideas? I'd love to hear them! :)
