This time of year in northern regions, it is common to awake to a thick layer of fresh, new snow on the ground. One of our favorite winter activities is bundling up to go outside for a treat usually reserved for summer – slushies. Using fresh snow to make slushies during cold winter months is a memory worth creating and one that children will think fondly of for years to follow!

Scooping snow and pouring juice are fantastic fine-motor activities for small children. Fresh snow slushies are a refreshing treat after sledding, shoveling, or a winter nature hike.

Homemade Maple Candy or Nothing if Not Intentional’s Snow Cream are a lot of fun to make as well! Winter may be cold, but it’s a great time to get outside to play, create, and celebrate!
