Snow Day!

Well, we have had quite a bit of snow around here lately!  Today it was coming down so hard that we actually had a snow day!  No school for Mommy means a bonus day of playing at home for Little Guy!

Since we had a lot of snow, of course we had to get out and play in it!  We both got all bundled up!

Getting ready to play in the snow!

Once we were outside, we tried to do a variety of things.  We started out with the sled.  I pulled Little Guy around for a little while.  Then he wanted to pull it himself, and he wouldn't get back in it!

Little Guy preferred pulling the sled!

Then I pulled a shovel and hoe out of our sand sensory box.  This seemed like a great way to let Little Guy play with the snow.  He scooped for a little while, then we got a bucket out for him to scoop into!

Scooping up snow is so fun!

Since Little Guy is still so little, I didn't want to stay outside for too long.  We went inside for lunch and a nap, and to warm up!

After nap, we made some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.  Little Guy is a great helper and loves to pour the ingredients into the bowl and then mix them together.  After the muffins baked, we went outside for a little while longer.  While out there, we made snow angels.

We tried blowing bubbles, as I had read that they would freeze, but ours floated away before we could tell if they were frozen. 

After heading in, we enjoyed a freshly baked muffin.  Little Guy really enjoyed his!

This muffin is so yummy!

We tried to do an indoor snow themed craft.  I drew a snowman and was trying to have Little Guy glue marshmallows onto the outline.  He didn't get to into it.  Oh well!

What do you do on snow days?  How do you play in the snow?
