Snow Bath – Indoor Snow Day Activities

Indoor Snow Day Activities are essential for us at the moment, we’re just out of hospital with T and she’s recovering but still not up for long time activities out in the snow so we brought the snow inside for her. I’ve looked at the themed baths that The Imagination Tree and Growing a Jeweled Rose have posted in the past and never attempted one of my own but today we took the plunge and took the snow indoors for some indoor snow day activities fun at home.

Setting up a snow bath

To surprise the kids I kept them downstairs whilst I set the bath up for them. Filling the bath with warm water adding bubble bath and colouring it blue with some liquid food colouring adding glitter to it. To make ice bergs I squirted some shaving foam into the bath.

Snowy Day Bath Fun

Outside I had collected a box of snow from on top of our table and storage box and brought that in. Put it around the bath and then let the kids in to play.

It was fabulous – declared by J to be the best bath ever – which as he loves baths is quite a statement. I’ve promised them that we will make it a special snow day activity for us. The two of them sat in the bath, covered each other in the glittery water, threw snow balls at each other and had fun making beards out of the shaving foam ice bergs.

We’re going to extend it further and add in small world creatures and characters (my parents have my Play Mobile Eskimo set from the 1980′s still and I can’t wait to have it here so that we can add those bits to the fun).

What other indoor snow day activities have you been doing this winter?
