winter wonderland - part 2

We've had nice mild temperatures and a lot of snow fall here this past week. Of course, my boys have been taking full advantage, enjoying lots of time outside.

Here is my youngest son - maybe a bit confused by it all?! Yes those are swim goggles! He definitely has a style of his own and keeps us chuckling to ourselves each day.

(You should also know that after playing out in the snow, he went in and changed out of his wet pants and into a pair of shorts)
So, as promised in my previous winter wonderland post, today I'm sharing with you another little project that we've been working on outside:

Ice sculptures!

We filled a bunch of yogurt containers and plastic cups, added some food colouring to a few and stuck them outside overnight. Once frozen, we stacked them in a row. The results were really neat.

You can't see it very well in these photos (because of the white ice shot on white snow) but there were some cool patterns made inside of the blocks. Some of them look like they have pom poms inside of them! Very neat and very fun for the kids.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're able to get outside and are making the most out of winter too!

  1. I love this activity. Sometimes it's fun to add rocks inside, put them in the water table or outside, give the children kids hammers to try to beak them out
