We don’t have much need for mittens in Texas. My kids consider themselves lucky if we get one good snow a year. More often than not, it’s only a light dusting. Rarely do we get enough snow to build a decent-sized snowman.
If we want enough snow for sledding or building snow forts or staging snowball fights, we’ve got to leave Tyler to find it. But since we do a lot of our traveling off-season, we get to bundle up warm in multiple layers of sweaters, coats, scarves, and mittens and experience the beauty of walking through a winter-wonderland.
Which is how we’ve spent the past week and a half, exploring Germany, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.
The best part? About the time we get tired of all the snow and sub-zero temperatures, it’s time to fly home. Back to the warm, snow-starved clime we love so much in the piney woods of East Texas!
Whether you deal with snow all winter long or in small doses like we do, your little ones will love our winter-themed activity pages. Call them inside before their fingers get frostbit and set them to work in front of a roaring fire.
