It's been hot lately and I was looking for a fun afternoon activity. We bought a snow cone maker for a recent 1st birthday party, and I decided I would finally answer the question my oldest asks me several times a day "Do you want to build a snow man???" with a yes!
So I spent a good portion of nap grinding up ice cubes and stashing my snow in the freezer.
I wish I had taken the time to get my camera out instead of relying on my almost dead cell phone, but despite the lackluster photography, this activity was a HUGE hit!
My youngest mostly just ate it.
We did eventually build a snowman. Actually we built lots of snowmen, a favorite part of the activity was 'smashing the little men.'
This activity might not be nearly as popular with kids that live in places that get actual snow, but it was great here! And in light of the drought, we did put our bowl under the table and collected the melted snow to water our tree.
