The rest of the country, or so it seemed, had woken up to a blanket of snow this morning while we had been left behind and were just feeling the cold instead.
Much to the small people’s disgust, the snow fairy had decided to forget about us and just let us shiver instead without the fun bits.
In the past hour, though, she’s waved her wand and it’s started to come down thick and fast even though the silly, soggy pavements haven’t let it settle yet.
Will you be doing any of these in the snow if it’s snowing where you are?
- making a snow angel
I showed the 5 year old how to do these the other year. He found it hilarious.
Well, the sight of me throwing myself backwards and then moving my arms and legs up and down to make the wings must have been a funny one, to be fair.
- Snowball fights
I take no prisoner. I don’t care if you’re 5 or 35. You’re going to get a snowball chucked at you if it’s a snowball fight. No mercy. (Although I might do it a little softer, ‘cos I’m alright really.)
- Build a snowman
Don’t forget a hat and scarf to keep him warm
-Step in the snow
Set off for wherever you’re headed at least half an hour earlier than usual as you’ll need to stop and put footprints in any piece of fresh, fluffy snow. Is it just me or is that stuff just impossible to leave alone?! It NEEDS pretty patterns put into it.
Wellington boots are best for this. They make big satisfying squishes of the snow and you get the sole imprint too.
Don’t forget to wrap up warm when you’re out in it, though…
Now let’s just hope it sets a bit so we can do all these things!
