The yard is covered in a white blanket just waiting for little footprints. Children love building snowmen, constructing snow forts and making snow angels.

Some children believe that wearing their pajamas inside out or putting a spoon under their beds will increase snowfall and may increase the odds for a snow day.

There are many quirky superstitions to try. What has your family tried? Did it work? How do you celebrate a snow day?

Snowless Snowball Craft

Winter is here, and that means it’s time to make some snowballs! Not everybody gets snow but that’s okay because this craft can be done anywhere. It’s really easy and, more importantly, really fun!

Materials

  • Styrofoam balls (various sizes)
  • White glue
  • White and blue tissue paper
  • Paint brushes
  • Glitter

Instructions

  1. Brush Styrofoam balls with a thin coating of glue.
  2. Cover each ball with the squares of tissue paper (the more crinkly, the better!).
  3. While still sticky with glue, coat each ball with glitter.

You can add wire or string to hang your snowless snowballs on display or glue them together to make a fun sculpture. Encourage your little ones to let their imaginations run wild!
