A cold, cold day

This morning, Jude and Felix used up the last of our Christmas tree and gingerbread play-dough. My personal favorite was Jude's cyclops gingerbread man.

Midday, they went outside - I prepared bottles of colored water for them to spray onto the snow. It was so cold, I didn't bring Ezra out today. 

In the afternoon, we made "snow dough" which turned out great! Hopefully they will play with it more tomorrow.

Clearly I am going to need a lot more ideas for winter projects, especially indoor ones. Even with everything we did today, which felt like a lot to me, they still wanted more to do.

  1. I LOVE your idea for painting the snow. My kids would love that! We will have to try it… tomorrow. We are expecting another 3 to 5 inches today. I like the jeweled playdoh idea too… I just don’t have extra jewels laying around at the moment.

    We did Cheerio bird feeders (on pipe cleaners) and the birds have eaten all our cheerios. Don’t know if your boys would enjoy that? :)
