Life’s Simple Pleasures for Children| Eating Snow



It is February of 2012 and we just experienced our first snow fall of the season.

Andrew has been increasingly excited about the winter months and we purchased all of his snow gear in the late fall months.. sadly this is the first winter that we have not had any snow, in fact we have been experiencing record temperatures up into the 50’s and 60’s.

Yesterday when we woke up my children’s eyes lit up with excitement, the sight of a white blanket on the ground means a fun day of playing in the snow.

Andrew learned how to make his first snow angel, shovel the driveway and even asked if he could eat snow.

While this is a gross thought in my mind..

No child goes through life without experiencing the simple pleasure of knowing what snow tastes like Smile

Next lesson in eating snow, knowing when and when not to eat it..
