Toddler Snow Fun

We had a bunch of fun on our snow day today!
ZB loved piling into all her snow clothes and was delighted to romp in the fresh powder...
Last night we set some food-colored water in an ice cube tray, out on the front porch.  We had used those to decorate our mailbox snowman:

We also filled a squeeze bottle with food-colored water.  ZB  had great fun making abstract art down the driveway:
The boys had a snow-day sleepover at a friends house.  When we went to pick them up, Reed was anxious to take ZB on her first sled ride!

A Snipet of Winter

Our Toddler Art Group met this week to create birdfeeders for those poor little birds that can't have much to eat in these cold Winter months!  We found a fun recipe that mixed bread crumbs, birdseed and shortening and then you spread that onto pinecones.  The kids LOVED the mixture part!  I'm so glad we had them do that, because once it was time to push it onto the pinecones, they nearly all left the table in search of a new activity!

Reed got busy this week preparing cards for a Valentine's Day exchange with one of his homeschool classes.
And just for clarification, yes, he *can* rhyme, we just all thought this was a pretty funny poem he made up :)

Today it has been snowing all day long, and ZB was very surprised to find a package at the door for her.  What a fun treat, thank you Sissa!  This was her reaction when Bobby pulled out each new thing:

A box full of dress-up, that even the boys couldn't resist trying on:
She pranced around in her new attire for a while, and then off to play in the new snow!
Stay warm everyone!
