1. Bring a cup of snow inside and have your child guess how long it will take for it to melt and if old enough, at what temperature?
2. Make your own snow cones! Using the snow from outside (it's clean enough, right?) add 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cups water and 1 package of unsweetened kool-aid. If you want to try an organic version try 1/2 bag of frozen organic fruit (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry etc) 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup or alternative sweeteners like organic brown rice syrup or agave nectar. Make sure its sweet enough for the perfect taste. Blend fruit and syrup mixture together and pour over snow. yummy!
3. Fill a spray bottle with water and add food coloring to make any color mixture your child desires. Bring the bottle out with you and have your child draw pictures and write words in the snow.
