Indoor winter snow play
The last few days have been chilly, so we decided to revisit one of my first blog posts (bringing the snow inside). It is one of my kids favorite indoor winter activities. This time instead of coloring the snow, the kids grabbed the bin of Polly Pockets.
Polly Pocket Snow Hut
I’m always amazed by kids imagination. Nothing like a blank canvas of snow to get them thinking and being creative.
We love building forts all over the house (as I am writing I am sitting beside a colossal blanket fort). So I was not at all surprised when they created a little snow huts for the Polly Pockets.
How to build an indoor Polly Pocket Snow Fort
The kids have made countless snow forts in our back yard, and they followed the same model to make their indoor huts. The kids started by mounding the snow, and then hallowing out an area large enough to fit a Polly Pocket bed. The kids have a few Polly Pocket houses, and brought bits and pieces into their snow village.
They even rigged up a little shower room, complete with a warm water.
I love the little decorative touches that adorn the top of each of the little huts.
The kids favorite addition to the little snow village was the hot tub.
Who knew a bin of snow and Polly Pockets could be so much fun.
