Lately it has been so bitter cold, we haven't been able to play outside in the snow. So instead of staring out the window wistfully, I brought the snow inside! I filled a big container (I used a foil turkey roaster) with snow and then let Eva go to town in it with a bunch of kitchen utensils. I think we will be doing this every day- it was such a hit!
I put a blanket down to catch any snow that jumped out of the pan. After a few minutes Eva asked for her mittens and dove right back in. Lots of fun and minimal mess!
