One of the best things about winter is getting to play in the snow, and there are tons of children-friendly activities that kids can do in the powder -- sledding, snowball fights, track-making and snow castle-building are just a few of these outdoor activities. There are also tons of snow crafts for kids such as building snowmen and making snow angels.

Kids can also enjoy the snow from indoors by watching it fall out the window, creating winter scenes, or just being cozy in the house while it's blustering outside.

Parents can enrich their children's experience of the snow by expanding the range of snow craft projects they do with their kids. There's no need to keep the snow people outdoors -- we have several ways to make indoor versions. And why just build a snow person? How about a snow snake? Kids love ice formations -- why not make some of your own, with decorations embedded in them?
