We don't get snow where we live in California, which drives my kids crazy. They are always asking when we can take a trip to go see snow again. Until that day, they have to settle for fun winter activities and making snowmen from other materials. These Snowman Activities are a fun way to get kids excited for a snow day or help them deal with the absence of snow in their lives. Best of all, no shoveling! Be sure to check out this Stacking Snowman activity for more snowy fun!
