Snowed "In" {An Inside Toddler Activity}

It's been cold here in Ohio.  Not just cold, really cold.  Unbearably cold.  To avoid going stir crazy, I've been trying to think creatively and plan some fun activities for Carson.  I was dying to take him to play in the snow but I just felt too guilty taking him out in the freezing temps.  So instead, we brought the outside in!  I used the bin we use for sensory play and filled it up with snow.  I gathered some of his summer beach toys and let him dig in.  He was a little hesitant at first, but really enjoyed it!  I just put a towel down in our kitchen and since snow melts into water, I wasn't concerned about a mess!

Here are some pictures of our snow day in:

Apparently these turtles make good hats!

He was pretty upset when he spilled some of the snow!

After tasting the snow. :)

I think he was confused, he kept trying to put his boots on! :)

What do you do to beat the winter blues?  
Share your fun indoor activities!
