Country Kids: snow cave

Country Kids Snow Cave

There is a point at which the snow gets too deep to build snowmen. You’d sink before you got the first roll in. So, what do you do?

Well, if you’re five, you start digging a snow cave instead!

Digging 1

Digging 2

Digging 3

Digging 4

And you keep digging…

Digging 5

Digging 6

Until you get a bit cold and tired. Then, you stand back and admire your work, ask mummy to take a photo, and come inside for hot chocolate.

End of Stage 1

After lunch, you bring in reinforcements…

Help Arrives 1

Help Arrives 2

Some helpers are more useful than others…

More Help 1

More Help 2

But she prefers to do her own thing anyway!

Doing her own thing 1

Doing her own thing 2

You keep digging long after the others have given up and gone inside…

End of Stage 2

And in the end, you have a snow cave to be proud of.

  1. Oh Wow!! I am envious of your snow, but to be honest, if we had that much here, the whole of England would just stop. Love that he can fit inside the whole cave, now that is determination. Well done little man! #countrykids

  2. I’m so jealous of the amount of snow you’ve got, it’s ridiculous, it makes the stuff we had for 3 hours look like rain. I bet you’re getting pretty tired of it now though! I’m really impressed with the snow cave, 5 yo seems very determined to make a cave to be proud of, and he succeeded! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  3. Three things I love about this post – 1st. his determination to keep going! 2. The amount of snow you have – that’s really impressive although I can imagine now how it must be starting to tire as it’s difficult to negotiate 3. the photographic evidence! So many photos detailing his efforts.
    A lovely post and I know mine would be envious of any snow cave they could build.

  4. Wow! That’s a lot of snow. Luckily we get to experience snow here in Dubai via the snow park. I’m glad that’s just about what we have, I don’t think I will survive in winter. #LetKidsBeKids

  5. Smart kids! That snow is just amazing, I’d really love to see that kind of snowfall at least once in my lifetime :) #letkidsbekids

  6. That looks fantastic, he did brilliantly well and such perseverance. What a great way to learn about tunnels etc too. He deserved the hot chocolate!
    Thanks for linking #LetKidsBeKids
