Well, it's January and we've just gotten our first snow fall of the season. Little Guy has loved watching the snow fall so I set up a super simple invitation to play for him.
I put snow in a container and added our Arctic animals. I also provided Little Guy with a small set of shovels and let him have at it.
After the first round of snow melted, I refilled the container with snow but I hid the animals at the bottom first. Little Guy thought this was so funny and loved scooping out the snow to find the hidden animals.
I ended up refilling the container at least 4 times and Little Guy played happily for over 20 minutes! Mommy score!
