It is winter. My husband and I have grown up with winter usually meaning snow in the north.
The not fun part: shoveling.
The fun part: sledding, building snowmen, skiing, ice skating, hot chocolate, etc.
This year so far is another story, (but I will not get into my feelings about global warming here).
My boys made these cool snow shakers at school. This way you can always have snow without shoveling and rumor has it, if you shake it while wearing your pjs inside-out, it will snow.
DIY | Snow Shaker
– water bottle with label peeled off
– white confetti
– small pine tree branch
Put confetti into bottle, then put pine branch into bottle. Fill bottle with water (not all the way up to the top.) Put lid back on and secure with tape. Shake.
