If you're looking for boredom busters for kids for snow days, or any other winter day when there's too much snow on the ground than you know what to do with, this collection of outdoor snow activities for kids is just what you need!

I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of winter.

Snow, ice, and windchill warnings.

Mitts, scarves, boots, and winter coats.

Everyone coughing and sneezing all over us whenever we go outside.

Those little, painful cracks that infest my hands from using so much hand sanitizer.

Hair static.

Winter weight gain.

I hate all of it.

But whenever I say the words “it’s snowing!”, my little girl’s face lights up like a Christmas tree, so I’m trying really hard not to dampen her spirits.

The good news is that we live in a condo, so I don’t have to spend a great deal of time outdoors, but for those rare occasions when we make the trek to my in-laws so we can enjoy a little time in their backyard, I decided to gather some good snow activities for us to enjoy.

I hope you can enjoy them too!
