Winter's Day

Here in central Pennsylvania, we are at the beginning of what promises to be a lengthy snowstorm.  Last night I made sure our feathered friends would be well fed and they have been flocking to our deck all morning.

 Are you getting pounded with snow as well? Don't forget to catch the snowflakes.

(indoor) Snowball Fight

Ready for a snowball fight?  If you live in the north east or midwest of the United States, you have probably had some great time in the snow with your family lately.  Whether it is warm or cold where you live, a little indoor snowball fight can be just what kids need to let off some energy.

Before we were pounded with snow this winter, my sister made these cute little snowballs for my boys and they have seen lots of snowball fights! 

Indoor snowballs are fun to make and will keep kids busy and happy.  Start with a yarn pom pom. (There is an easy tutorial found here.) Glue on a felt circle for the face, make a mouth and nose with fabric paint, and glue on googly eyes. Now you are ready to play! (These would be perfect for a winter time birthday party or playdate.)

Have fun!
