GO ON A WINTER WALK

  • Collect items along the way and make a collage with them when you get home.
  • Take some snowy pictures.
  • Look for tracks in the snow.

MAKE SNOW ANGELS

  • Look for a nice big patch of undisturbed white fluffy snow.
  • Carefully fall backward with your arms outstretched; try to land in a T position.
  • Move your arms and legs like you’re doing jumping jacks while pressing your head into the snow.
  • Get up slowly; try not to ruin your amazing creation.
  • Take a moment to admire your hard work.

PLAY SNOW BOWL-CURL (this is our combination of outdoor curling & bowling)

  • Fill six 500mL plastic bottles with water and freeze them (add a few drops food colouring for fun)
  • Fill a 4L milk jug with water and freeze.
  • Set up the 500 mL bottles (aka pins) at one end of an ice surface.
  • Mark off a starting line, then slide your milk jug (aka bowling ball) across that line, down the ice in an attempt to knock over the pins (pop/water bottles).
