Snow Day! {or Merry Christmas in January}




We had our first significant snowfall this past weekend! The kids woke up to a Winter Wonderland and my sweet little 2 year-old, Megan, looked out the window and squealed, "It's Chwris-mas!" (Later on she added, "We put the tree away? And we put the presents away?") So, in the spirit of Megan's excitement, I wish you all a "Merry Christmas"...in mid-January!


The snow was too fluffy for making a snowman, so the kids made "snow faces" instead. :)

snow face complete!


The kids thought it was hilarious to play on the snow-covered slide and swings!


Adam was ready to come inside shortly after swinging--it was really cold out there! So he and I headed in for some hot apple cider while Dad & Luke stayed out a little longer playing a "snow tracking game." Luke was very proud of himself--he got to help out with the snow-blower!





Sometimes I forget how much fun it is to actually play in the snow! There's just something about it that makes you feel like a kid again!


Later on inside we pulled out some boardgames we'd received for Christmas and hadn't played yet. I highly recommend these two in particular:

Cranium Playground Preschool Edition

This game struck the perfect balance educational fast-paced fun! We were all cracking up at the silly dance moves and letter-formations we had to make with our bodies. It's great for hand-eye coordination, memory, drawing skills, letter recognition, counting, sequencing and more, but you don't even realize you're learning because it's that much fun! (Not that learning isn't fun, but...well, you know what I mean!) We will definitely be playing this one again soon. Even little Megan loved it (with help, of course. She's only 2!)!


Another great game was the classic and highly praised Qwirkle:



It definitely lives up to its reputation. This one is not for preschoolers--even my 6 year old, Luke, needed some assistance, but this game is really fun! A wonderfully challenging game of logic!


Kevin and Luke teaming up against me! Yikes!


I totally got whooped by the Luke/Dad team! LOL!





Just wanted to share to our snowy weekend adventures with you. :) What adventures did you have this weekend?

  1. Our day yesterday was a lot like yours - the kids played in the snow for hours, then we spent hours on board games :) Fun day! Forgetting 'official' schoolwork for a day felt good!
