When the north wind blows and fluffy white snow covers our backyard, outdoor play is nixed by this frigophobic Mema. Instead, my grandsons and I find ourselves discovering new ways to amuse ourselves in the warmth of our cozy playroom.
We build forts, climb through tunnels, don our super hero capes and jump off tall skyscrapers. (Which to the untrained eye may only appear to be ordinary storage containers.) In a large bowl, I’ve brought real snow indoors to squish between our fingers and even rolled up mismatched socks to use as snowballs.
The goal is to have fun while learning!
Please head over to The Chicago Moms to read why I may have a little trouble when the math gets more advanced.
