Got Winter? Try these snow and ice activities

This weeks "Got? series" post is Got Winter? Try these snow and ice ideas. A collection of creative, arts, crafts and just plain fun using snow and ice.

Just click on the photos to be taken to each original post with the directions to each idea. Have fun!

This idea is just fantastic! Mr Potato Snow Heads!!!

Have a snow experiment.

How does adding oil change the melting process? Fine out here.

Make ice sun catchers. These are beautiful!

Practice fine motor skills by scooping ice.

Make colourful ice sculptures.

Colour mixing experiment by allowing different coloured ice cubes to melt and mix.

Colour mix with frozen water colour paints, bonus is you get to paint at the same time.

Make an ice volcano.

Ice gems add wonderful colour to your yard, deck and walkways.

Make a snowman as a bird feeder and feed your feathered friends.

Make ice ornaments to brighten up your yard.

Try a glowing ice and salt experiment.

Make ice boats.

Add faces to your trees instead of making a full snowman or if the snow isn't proper packing snow for snowmen.

 Learn about melting by applying heat to mini snowmen.

Try Lego (or other small toy) excavations.

Make candles in the snow.

 Make Ice Mandalas.

How about ice ghosts or could be monsters if it's not near Halloween

Make snow cakes.

Excavate dinosaur ice eggs.

Make ice chalk.

Paint the snow! It's a huge, bright, glorious canvas.

Snow pearls would be a super sensory exploration.

 Here are 5 snow activities you may never have thought of Frozen tag and Frozen bubbles.

 This idea for glow sticks in the snow is just a picture but would be fun to do too.

This idea for monster snowshoes doesn't give a how to (it links to a book) but they idea is simple to replicate and super cute.

 Explore these winter books and the activities listed to go along with each book.

Try an experiment to see how blubber keeps arctic animals warm.

No real snow and ice in your area? How about trying this small world play by replicating snow.

Or try making our snowflakes from coffee filters.
