A while back I read about this really cool ice cube scavenger hunt in the snow on Parents.com. With snow in our forecast I decided I would freeze a batch of red hearts for my kids to look for in the snow.
To have an ice cube scavenger hunt in your snowy yard all you need is:
Snow - we used the ones provided by nature, but if you have a snow maker, that would work fine, too.
Good Hiding Skills - while your kids aren't looking, go outside and hide the ice cubes for the scavenger hunt in the snow.
Depending on your kids ages, you might want to make them a map to use to find the ice cube hearts, or you could give them clues or riddles to solve to lead them to the hidden ice cubes.
Warm Clothes to Bundle-up - now go outside and enjoy your snow day ice cube scavenger hunt!
You can find some fun facts about ice to add an educational component to the ice cube scavenger hunt at Go on An Ice Cube Treasure Hunt on NWF.org.
What are your favorite things to do outside with the kids on a snow day?
