It’s snowing again. Just lightly. Not even enough to cover the ground, a light sprinkling really, but it’s reminding me of all the fun we had in the snow last month.
The forecast for next week is a different matter, and if the predicted storm hits we’ll be back to playing in the snow. Perhaps we’ll manage some more sledding or build another snowman, because we had A LOT of fun doing just that a few weeks ago.
We’re lucky enough to have a decent slope in our garden that the kids can use for a sled run, and in the last round of heavy snow they certainly made the most of it!
My daughter was desperate to build a snowman though, and each time it snowed she’d give it a good go. Getting so frustrated when the snow refused to pack and just fell apart. She and her brother did discover that the snow that had been compacted and thrown by the snow blower stayed solid enough to be used to decorate a tree though! They spent ages hanging snowballs from branches one afternoon.
Until the last day of the snowstorms in February. Finally the snow was sticky enough.
With some help from their dad, my daughter and the 7yo rolled a couple of giant snowballs ready to use as bodies. The next day we went out and finished them off. Although my daughter insisted on starting a new one that would be all her own work. That’s my girl!
It remains to be seen if there will be more sledding or snowman building next week… Watch this space!
