Like just about everyone else I think, I am so DONE with snow. Bring on spring. It's especially not fun when you have little kids literally bouncing off the walls. (Come to my house and you will see Caroline bouncing off the walls.) Yeah we do go to places like the library, mall playground, and children's museum but sometimes bundling up two toddlers and transporting them in and out of the car in freezing temperatures is just more trouble than it's worth. If it's nice enough, at least above freezing, I will take them outside but that lasts about 30 minutes max right now. Poor little Kate gets cold quickly and still falls down a lot.
When I saw this idea in a parenting magazine, I thought it was pure genius. So simple yet I had never thought of it. Bring some snow inside. So I did and the girls loved it. Particularly Caroline who played with it for over an hour (with occasional snow refills), which in toddler time is almost an eternity.
We didn't even have to take off our pajamas!
Even though we were inside, a pair of gloves is still a good idea.
Caroline even said I was the best mom ever for making this miniature snowman. Awwww!
Luckily Dad can take the bigger kids out on his days off for more traditional snow fun.
Okay. Next season please!
