Much to our delight Last night it snowed! YEAH!!! In honor of this great event we decided a post about the awesome stuff you can do in the snow was in order…
by: Sadie & Kell
1. Horseback riding in the snow
-Suggestion: Go bareback its warmer
– Play the mitten game
+How to play: You’ll need two Players for this game, Each player will ride to opposite ends Of the Field. One will be holding the mitten (we prefer to use a pixie glove) and the other will be the catcher. Make sure you decide ahead of time which hand you will use. Right means you will be riding past on each others right sides and left hand left sides, we play right handed. both riders turn after reaching their end of the field. The mitten holder the hand holding the mitten triumphantly in the air when they are ready. The catcher lifts their receiving hand in the air to show they are ready. Both riders drop their hands and urge their horses to lope, making sure they are still on the correct side. As the riders pass each other the mitten holder reaches out and so does the catcher. The goal is to have the mitten end up in the catchers hand. You count each successful pass in a row and try to break your own or someone else’s records.
-Tubing behind the horses can be a good time if you are careful.
2. Go sledding
– This may seem childish but sledding is ALWAYS fun. Race, do tricks, if you are Kelli’s little brother sled off the church roof.
-Tow a sled behind a four wheeler if you have one, and a good field to do it in.
3. Have a snowball fight
– Boys throw harder, but they are probably more fun to play with.
4. Build a snowman
-It’s best if you can make this snowman look like someone specific.
5. Make snow angels
6. If you can find a good place you can go penguin sliding. Any place flat and icy will work out nicely.
