Fresh Ideas for the Fresh Snow Fall!

Posted by Gym-Nest on Feb-12-2014

Getting a little tired of all that white stuff floating to the ground? How about your kids? Snow days are fun because they are a change in the routine, but this winter, snow days have become the routine! Well, you know we love routines here at The Gym-Nest so we thought if snowfalls are keeping your kids from the routine of their gymnastics instruction, then we will offer some fun ways to enjoy the snow and be active!

  • Toys do not have to be seasonal! Hula hoops can be great fun in the snow. Just try to keep them going when all bundled up. What a challenge! Or, lay them flat in the snow and jump from hoop to hoop. Try increasing the distance between hoops and see who can make the longest jump!
  • Inner tubes can be used in the snow too. Have a seat and use your feet to move along and race some friends.
  • Be creative and use snow to sculpt all kinds of different snow critters and use bits of nature as eyes, antennae, etc.
  • Fill some spray bottles with water tinted with different colors of food dye and use the snow as a large canvas for the kids to “paint” on.
  • Tic Tac Toe takes on new excitement when the board is drawn in the snow and sticks are used to make  the “x’s” and pine cones or rocks are used to make the “o’s”.
  • Tinted water can also be frozen into cubes, then hidden in the yard for a scavenger hunt.
  • Fore! Pack down a section of snow and then push small sand buckets or plastic cups down into the snow. Mark the “holes” with sticks and now you have a golf course!

Let’s make the most of the snow! Before we know it, we will be hot and wishing for cooler weather! Do you have some good snow time activities to share? Head over to the Gym-Nest’s facebook page and share!
