Weathering the Storm

"In the bleak midwinter, frost and wind made moan,
earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow..."


~In the Bleak Midwinter


The Northwest has been hit pretty hard with recent snowstorms. We've been trying to keep the kids busy here inside. Little ones can only play out in the snow for so long, you know! Here are a couple of things we've done in order to weather the storm:

There's something wonderful about a boy and his dad setting up the electric train to go 'round the Christmas tree.

The kids enjoyed making this Nativity scene out of a paper grocery bag.

What do you like to do when the weather keeps you inside?

Cut paper snowflakes! You can even download patterns for older kids, or cut simple triangles with the little guys. Then hang them around the house to bring the snow inside!

My kind of warm snow fun!

Tanner loves puzzles. I remember always having a puzzle table set up in the winter when I was growing up.

Make cookies..make homemade playdough... tape cardboard to toys :)... pull all the clothes off the shelf...go "fishing" in the Christmas tree with rolls of wrapping paper...come in the kitchen every 20 minutes for snacks...:)

It's super cold here, too, but no snow. Today with the wind chill it felt like -6. Too cold to breathe!
