When it snowed in mid-October, I grabbed my 7-month-old daughter and said, “This is your first time seeing snow!!” Everything seems new, and fresh, and exciting, when I see it anew through my child’s eyes. I hope to give her a love for the seasons, and an appreciation for snow, so it isn’t a season to simply ‘get through.’ So, with the help of many other people’s suggestions, I created a bucket list to do with kids this winter!!

Winter List of Fun

  • Play in the snow
  • Nature walk in the snow
  • Build a snowman
  • Make a snow angel 
  • See an ice sculpture

  • Bake something seasonal 
  • Explore a snow maze (Manitoba)
  • Go to an Ice Castle (Edmonton)

Hope you find some joy in the snow this year!
