Today is a snowy day and each time I look around I can’t help but wonder how many of my new students will spend time out in the snow today when they arrive home from school?

Will their parents give them the gift of standing out in the snow while it falls upon their faces or the gift of running around and making tracks?  It is a cumbersome undertaking to get them ready to go out but so worth the effort.

If your day is just too crazy an alternative solution might be to scoop up a bunch of snow and bring it inside (yes live on the wild side) and let them explore the frozen water in the sink or tub (not while bathing of course!!)

As adults we sometimes equate snow with negative feelings but try to think back to when you were 6 years old and you played and experimented in the snow (if you grew up in snowy places).  I know my memories were always so magical.
