Fun In The Snow
And it's not just being able to look at snowflakes that makes snow so good. You know what snow is made of, don't you? That's right, water! Here's a fun little activity that many of us already know. Try to catch a falling snowflake on your tongue. It's fun to chase them that way, and they taste great!

And what about snowballs? Perhaps the easiest thing we can make out of snow. All you have to do is scoop up a handful of the white stuff and squeeze it until you form a ball that sticks to itself. Then the possibilities are endless! You can throw them at your friends, but not too hard. Gather a bunch of friends and have a huge snowball fight. You'll see, it's a lot of fun!
And now for one of my favorite snow activities. Freshly fallen snow obviously doesn't last long. There are always people or animals that walk all over it. Animals are what I really want to talk about. When they walk on the snow, they leave tracks behind. We can identify these animal tracks the best when they are left in the snow. Hard summer dirt doesn't work. Mud sometimes works, but there is a lot more snow.
