Snow Day Fun

Newsflash!  SNOW STORM.


There is nothing else on the news, there is no way you could miss it (at least in New England).  They have literally been on the air, instead of ALL (horrible anyway) programming.  

Is it possible we need a snow total update every quarter of an inch?



So whatev, Nemo is here... here is the fun we had before 10 am.

<one of the benefits of FARM SCHOOL - is that D will play outside no matter the temperature and weather for at least two hours>

Get out.


First up:  Maple Snow!

For a breakfast app we had a Little House on the Prairie fav.

Maple Snow.

Here are the steps:
  1. Open door 3 inches
  2. Scoop a bowl of snow
  3. Top with maple syrup
  4. Enjoy
That's some pioneer goodness right there.


Next up: Snowflake Exploration!

This is a little more complicated.

JK, it's only complicated if first you have to go to the craft store to get construction paper.  If that's the case, skip this activity, because your governor OUTLAWED driving today.


With no Starbucks.

Ok back to the paper.  If you have it.
  1. Open door 3 inches
  2. Stick paper out to catch snow
  3. Check out the flakes
  4. Repeat
Last up: Snow Graffiti 

This is a great way to use up all your toxic food coloring from before you cared about toxic food coloring and made green potatoes for St. Patrick's Day.

  1. Dig out food coloring from back of cabinet (it's under your organic corn starch, flax seed meal, and fair trade sugar).
  2. Mix a few squeezes in a spray bottle and a squirt bottle
  3. Grab the BPA tupperware you don't use anymore, some spoons, other random things that have no matches that you don't care if they get left outside and sent through the snow blower <note: your husband DOES care>
  4. Dress child (this takes the longest)
  5. Undress child because he has to pee
  6. Get new underwear because he "just did a few drops" in it
  7. Redress child (takes longer than the first time because clothes were taken off on the way to the bathroom)
  8. Open door 12 inches
  9. Shove kid out and close door
  10. Open door 3 inches
  11. Throw paint supplies out the door
  12. Every 5-10 minutes open door 3 inches
  13. Refill paint supplies
  14. Open door 3 inches
  15. Throw paint supplies out the door
  16. Watch news constantly, hoping we are allowed to drive... at least to Starbucks.
Hop on over to these blogs where - if they are lucky - I'll share this :)

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. We don't get much snow here. It's been moderate this winter.

Anyway, thanks for linking up at Lovin the Weekend! Following now on FB and Pinterest. :-)

When I was a child, my mom made snow ice cream by mixing sugar and condensed milk. YUM! Thanks for sharing. Stay warm.

Happy Blue Monday, KT.

KT said...

YUM - that sounds fantastic!!!

Wow, that is a lot of snow! Your cars are practically buried! Do you know how much snow you got? It looks like a lot.

I have never had maple snow but we had snow ice cream when I was little. I assume you have your electricity? I really hate it when it snows and we lose our electricity.

Whenever we have a snow the media freaks out(so do I and other people, lol!). Just a bit of snow can cause havoc around here as it freezes and people have trouble getting up and down hills, so it's all over the news and the city virtually shuts down. However, I could literally WALK to a Starbucks because it's only a block away. Sorry, had to rub it in, lol! Thanks for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday and hope you get your SB on soon! ;)

KT said...

Haha - we got about 30 inches (not the most - which was in Hamden,CT where my Aunt lives - 40 inches there) and never lost electricity this time around. My husband dug the cars out, and cleared the driveway with the snow blower and the kids loved playing outside and watching him! We don't really stop for anything - school isn't usually cancelled unless we are getting more than 6 inches during the school day (when kids are traveling). I am jealous of your key SB location... I did get out yesterday (and today) though - so need fulfilled!

You're welcome anytime... but Saturday you would have needed to arrive via a plow :)
