So take some maple syrup (straight-up people - none of that Aunt Jemima Log Cabin crap) and put it in a sauce pan.
It helps to have a candy thermometer but you can also just watch the syrup. When the bubbles change from frothy to stiff(er), from the middle picture to the right, OR the temp hits 230/235ish you're all set.
Pour your hot candy syrup, in ribbon, over some packed snow in a bowl or pan.
Allow kids to play with snow all over table, floor, get everything sticky, and then complain that their mouth is stuck together with syrup candy :) you're making memories people!
PS - brush teeth. repeat. x2.
