Why Make Coffee Filter Snowflakes?

Ah, the first snowfall. Kids can’t wait to get out in that fresh snow and make their marks. But when snow angels, snowballs, snow forts and snowmen lose their luster and the temperature is 5 below BRRRR, what’s next on the winter adventure list?

Ditch the frozen temps and wet gloves to spend an afternoon inside. Don’t worry. We’re not suggesting you settle in for an afternoon of “I’m bored!” or “What can I do?” We’ve all had quite enough of that, thank you very much.

Just because you’re inside doesn’t mean you can’t pretend to be outside. Ask your kids how they’d bring the outside in. What would they do if they could make it snow inside?
