There is something magical about snow. It doesn't matter how many times in a season it snows, kids never seem to lose their fascination with it. Back in November we got a good snow storm and I was able to capture this small moment of snow play.
It started out on a Saturday afternoon. The girls were really working together well to get their snowman made. In fact, there were two snowmen being built. Lou had her own going while the other two girls and I worked on this one. I was pretty impressed that Lou would work so hard on her own since she sometimes seems to think the task is too big for her to do alone.
Maisy began putting the finishing touches on hers and Mina's snowman while Lou was finishing up her (wish I had a picture of Lou's before the following chain of events occurred).
There is a bit of competition between my two older girls, and Maisy decided she would sit down on Lou's snowman. She may not have liked that Lou had made her own and decided to "squash" the competition.
Here's what was left of Lou's snowman. If you look closely, you can see those snowman arms sticking up.
Here's a few more pictures from a couple years back of my two older girls and their snow creations. I had a huge supply of dum-dums and wanted to get rid of them. They were so easy to use to decorate the snowman.
Maisy added a plastic bowl to his head and said he was an astronaut.
And Lou made a snow worm. He is a happy little fella.
Does it snow where you are? What ways do you and your children like to play in the snow?
Here are some fun ideas of "snow play" without real snow:
