Play Snowball Hopscotch
Who knew you could combine a lesson about numbers with a silly snow game? Involving many different options for play, this physical activity is sure to please on a sunny, snow-filled day. Your child will use vibrant food coloring in reds, blues, or yellows to "paint" a colorful hopscotch court directly onto the snow, or for a little less mess she can set up a grid with rocks or pebbles. This activity is a great way to get kids moving during the winter months. Sitting indoors often consumes snowy days, but it will benefit her to get some fresh air and physical exercise—and she'll give her mind a workout, too!
What You Need:
- Food coloring and squirt bottles
- Small stones or pebbles (optional)
- Sidewalk chalk (for non-snowy climates)
