Hurray, snow! Finally, we also waited for the snow. Are you surprised by my joy? And again I could feel like a little girl. Over the weekend, with my crumbs, we came up with so many interesting games that I just could not resist the temptation to devote another topic to this fun.
Sleds, skis and skates …
Who among us in childhood did not slide on a sled from a snow slide? And whoever did not get the sled, he was content with a piece of plywood, cardboard or just rolled down head over heels. Now there are even special plastic devices for skiing from slides (which our Kulibins will not invent), although my children prefer sledding.
While my son is growing up, my daughter has already managed to master and skate, however, we only ride on the skating rink (no open water), and ride it does not work so often. As for skis, I think we still have everything ahead.
Pathfinders and trail tops
Outdoor games are good, but sometimes you need to diversify leisure more quiet activities. When I was little, the guys very much loved to leave in the snow the prints of their palms and the whole body, the so-called snow angels. Such fun can diversify. Suggest the child to consider the traces of birds, animals or transport – already existing in the snow, and let the crumb tell who could leave these marks.
And you can cut out of cardboard the traces of a bear or an elephant and tie them to the shoes of a child, let him leave mysterious prints for other trackers now.
Blindy woman snow
Or maybe not only a woman? There are so many interesting ideas around – for example, fairytale heroes or funny animals. Although it is possible to create with a snowman, turn him upside down, or make him a trendy mohawk out of icicles. It will be even more interesting to create a sculpture not in the garden, but on the wall of a house, garage or on the gate. You just need to form small snowballs and sculpt them on the wall, drawing out the patterns and figures of animals.
Ice flakes and snowflakes
Consider snowflakes can be infinitely long, but the same is still not found. Arm yourself with a magnifying glass or take a picture of snowflakes on a dark background in macro mode. Suggest the child to draw the ones that he liked the most.
And here is another interesting idea – prepare a soap solution and a cocktail tube, inflate a soap bubble and watch how quickly it becomes covered with frost patterns. Such a beauty! The only pity is that its age is short …
What else? Yes, a lot of things! You can freeze the tinted water in the forms for the sandbox – you will get original toys for the Christmas tree growing in the courtyard, or paint directly on the snow with the same tinted water. And you can also draw a target on the fence and throw snowballs at it, competing in accuracy, or build an ice fortress.
