Close approaching winters symbolize snow and all the related fun and excitement to play in snow. Snowfall is obvious to occur, whether you love it or not. Even though people of older age find it difficult to step out in the snow, young boys and teenagers consider snow day as a fun day.

Here is a list of all the fun activities that can turn a seemingly dull and boring snow day into a fun day.

Attract Birds

Take a string and put in some cranberries, popcorns, and cereal to make a beautiful garland that would attract and feed your little feathered friends.

Hoop it up!

Kids find hula hoops highly enjoyable and a fun thing to play with. Take some hula hoops and perform a test to check who makes it till the end. The fun part is that it is hard to make the hoop last longer with your body bundled up in clothes.

Ice Maker

When the temperature drops on a snowy day, blow some bubbles with the kids and enjoy watching them freeze on the wand.

Frosty Toss

This is another activity that can make a boring snow day into a fun day. Conduct a snowball throwing challenge. You can make a bright circle amid the snow with some colored water in a spurt bottle to make the target.

You can create a fake golf course of your own. Do this by packing down a section of snow at short distances. Create holes by burying empty tin cans halfway beneath the snow. You can mark these cans with mini flagsticks.

Scavenger Hunt

Yet another fun activity to enjoy with kids in the snow is planning a scavenger hunt. You can hide something in a mound of snow with a small portion peeking out. Now, guide the kids with inane directions to follow and search for the hidden items.

Snowball Fight

Make two groups among the family members and just start throwing. T However, it is recommended to save this activity as the last one so that you get sufficient time to dry yourselves out.

Handover some cookies to the kids. Now, blindfold every individual child and ask him to try getting the mouth, eyes, and buttons right in place. This is a great activity to do with kids on a snow day.
