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? Check out Yeti DIY where they offer photos and links to everything snow or check out my Fun Down the Slopes on a Budget.
