Use sand toys for snow play
Darci's snow day play tip:
We just got a foot of beautiful new snow. My son loves to build. So all the sand toys -- the shovels, yogurt containers, and plastic pails -- went outside. He built an igloo, forts and a castle. Stuck without snow boots? Rubber band plastic bags over your tennis shoes!
In a pinch, you can also put plastic dishwashing gloves over knit gloves to keep them dry for a few minutes. Good enough for a quick snowball fight!
