This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SnowCast for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

 We have reached the time of year I dread. Snow season. We were teased with the delay in the snow and now it seems like it’s always in the forecast. Our first snow of the season was a major one, dumping almost 3 feet of snow overnight.

Sure the kids were excited. But, as parent, you know what’s coming. School closings and delays. The thing I hate the most? The waiting game. Will we have school? Won’t we? How much snow are we really going to get?

With the SnowCast app for iOS, I will always know what is going on when it comes to winter weather. I get a little paranoid with the snow so this app will help me stay on top of things. I’ll know how many inches of snow will fall in now  (within next 6 hours), later in the day or over the next 48 hours.

The SnowCast interface is clean and simple! Just Download the app for $2.99, plug in your location, and you will begin receiving notifications for your future forecast.

And since I’ll have a heads up that we may be stuck home in the snow, I can put together some things for the kids to do in the snow to keep them busy.

10 Things to Do in the Snow

1. Snow paint! Fill up some spray bottles with water and food coloring and let your little artists go to town. Don’t forget about your snowman too!

2. Build a snow fort. Back in my day {man I sound old}, we had to build our snow forts with our hands. Today, they have these awesome snow blocks, molds to create snow bricks for your fort!

3. Create a snow volcano. This is an awesome idea from Science Sparks.

4. Go sledding! We have a very small incline on the front of our house that Ethan recently discovered sledding on. It’s not much, but it’s a start for him. I honestly thought he would want no parts of it. But with the right sled, he seems to enjoy it!

5. Look for animal prints! We are always finding animal tracks in our snow, whether it’s the neighbor’s dog or the cat that likes to hang out on our steps. The boys love to try to figure out who made the tracks!

6. Snow angels! Another Ethan favorite is making snow angels. He loved teaching the little kids how to make snow angels this year.

7. Go bowling! No, not at the bowling alley. Make your own snow bowling alley. We have a narrow area between our neighbors house that would be perfect for this. Simply make pins and bowling balls out of snow. Set them up and let them bowl!

8. Make an ice bird feeder. This DIY project from Henry Happened is so pretty! Plus, the boys can do a little bird watching.

9. Blow bubbles. If you blow bubbles when the temperature is below freezing, the bubbles will freeze! You will be the coolest mom {or dad} if you show your kids this.10 things to do in the snow-1

10. Build a snowman. An oldie but goodie. We got an awesome snowman kit a few years ago and it makes decorating your snowman super easy {and super cute!}.
