What do you do in the snow? Look for tracks.
I sent Bowden and Lucy out with my camera.
Put unsweetened kool-aid in water bottles and send the kids out to color.
Pretend that you're living in the Big Woods and try to make "candy" from maple syrup.
I was bummed after I let the kids do all this- instead of some school- and when we really got going into actual school, they were cranky. So sad. At least their cute, even when they're not grateful.
(Just so you know, when I was a child, after reading Little House in the Big Woods, I tried to make maple syrup candy with table syrup- not real- and ice cubes. That's what we had. Really maple syrup was something I did not experience until I went to college. And I didn't like it. Too thin and sweet. Not buttery. Poor Sarah Paulson.)
