This week we had a ball trying some inside snow activities for when it’s too cold to play outside. (And here in LA we tap out at 60°.)
Velcro Snowball Toss
Place the Velcro right onto the ball, put on your gloves and VOILA! It took me a second to realize that you only need to wear one glove or you can’t throw the ball! This is great game for kids who haven’t quite mastered catching yet and the velcro was less than $3!
- White play-dough
- Embellishments: sticks, googly eyes, carrots, raisins, etc.
Living in LA, we don’t get a bunch of real snow, so this is as close as we’ll get to building a snowman. The idea is simple but it’s really in the presentation. Roll the play-dough into 3 differently-sized balls and stack on top of one another. Once this is complete, add embellishments! I was surprised by how much the kids loved this one and how cute the snowman turned out! I think this is the perfect activity to have on hand for a Holiday party!
Snowman Night Lights
Ahead of time, take the mason jars outside and paint them white. Once dry, decorate them in whatever festive way you like. (we loved using the old socks as the scarf or the hat.) Last, pop the electric tea light in and you’ve got the perfect cozy little night light.
Hope these get you into the mood for winter while staying warm!
