Snow Day Fun!

Want some ideas for games at the cabin?

This is how we kept the kiddos busy...

Winter Scavenger Hunt
The kids had to solve riddles to find their next clue.
Ex: To stomp through mud or snow, pull me on and off we'll go!
You get the point. Each clue included an attached bag of candy, so the kids were really sugared up!
The kids followed several clues all through the cabin and snow to their final destination where their prizes were waiting.

The kids loved this! The boys got airplane shooters and the girls got giant diamond rings!

Colored Ice Cube Hunt
Beforehand, freeze about 3 dozen colored ice cubes (just add a couple of drops of food coloring).
Hide them in snow so that just a hint of color is visible. Then, let 'em loose. The one that collects the most wins. So Easy!
I wasn't sure if the kids would like this one. Well, undoubtedly, we will be doing this every time we are up there. We had to hide them over and over. They couldn't get enough!

Hey Sara! Wow...I am truly amazed by you! I loved the Christmas card!! Mine are here, but I haven't had time to actually get them addressed and's never too late, right? You look so good and happy and your kids are soooo cute! I would love to go to lunch some time.
