With a few days into March and no sign of thawing, we can grumble about the weather or embrace the snow and brighten our day. To get some creative ideas on how to achieve happiness on a blustery day, let’s take a look at what other people are doing:

Baker Gal has the idea when sculpting and painting snow. She has posts on making snow penguins, living room furniture and more. With a little homemade snow paint or a can of spray paint found  lying in your garage, you can bring a lot of happiness to your neighborhood.

Go show shoeing! I’ve found area nature centers have days that offer free snow shoe rentals or just very low prices. Take your entire family or check out The Exceptional Canine that shows you how to snow shoe with your favorite canine.  With a little string and branches, you can make your own snow shoes too.

Now that you have your snow shoes, why not try to take some nature photos of ice formations like frozen waterfalls or trees glistening in white. This may be the last time for the season you’ll get the chance.

Forget the snowball fights and have a contest with your friends on who can catapult a snow ball the farthest. Snow ball slings can be easily made with stuff usually found around the house. WikiHow gives a great photo step-by-step instruction on making your own snow ball slingshot in no time.

It’s all in the perspective. If we decide to enjoy ourselves with what weather comes our way, we’ll never feel slighted by Mother Nature. Looking for other snow fun DIY projects?

About thewritegirlforthejob

During college, I began my writing career as a reporter for a newspaper. After graduating with honors in 2004, I continued my journalism and public relations education at Barry University and Empire State College(graduating with a BA). As a freelance writer, I have over 100+ published works and have had the honor of authoring the commissioned book, History Restored. Since starting my writing career, I've edited more books for authors rather than complete my own - since work comes first before I have the pleasure to write. I've been very lucky to be given the gift of having a very supportive family that has allowed me to share my passion of creating and writing and can already see my youngest wanting a page of her own soon.
