DIY Fun With Snow

Posted Thursday, January 14th, 2016 by .

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Then again, maybe not. Snow is one of those things that many of us want until we actually get it. Then we want it to be gone, gone, gone. In any case, ’tis the season for the white stuff.

Real Snow

If you have actual snow, it may interest you to know how it’s formed. The life of a snowflake begins high in the earth’s atmosphere. Whether a potential snowflake becomes sleet, freezing rain, or a blizzard depends on temperature, humidity, and water vapor encountered during its fall to earth. The perfect combination of all three factors is required to form the type of snow that’s perfect for making a snowman, snow ball, or snow fort.

When you are blessed with real snow, there are a variety of ways to celebrate. You could make DIY snow paint and design a masterpiece in the front yard. You could be more traditional and make snow prints or snow angels. Or you could be silly and make snowmen that will attract the attention of the passerby. Here are ten more activities to do in the snow. Have fun, and make sure to bundle up!

Giving thanks. Ideally we find ways to give thanks throughout the year. For many, however, the best time to do so is on Thanksgiving. As we gather among family and friends, we should stop and reflect on all the ways we’re blessed. Here are several ideas on how you and yours can give thanks this year. Give them a try and you just might find yourself creating new Thanksgiving traditions for years to come.

For the Wall

A great place to show your appreciation is on the wall. If you already have artwork up, it’s easy to replace your pictures with a few holiday pieces. You could make shadow boxes containing such blessings of autumn as colorful leaves and miniature pumpkins. You could even make paper leaf garlands to hang across doorways.

Why not organize a family project? Set out paints and a blank canvas, and have your guests add a few thumbprint leaves to a painted tree. When it dries, have them write on each leaf something they’re thankful for. Who knows? You just might decide to keep your Thanksgiving art up the whole year round!
