Hello friends! I have a brand NEW winter album this week called "Let It Snow" and I think you're going to love it! Before you know it, we'll be bundling up in our winter clothes, warming our toes by the fireplace and enjoying the snow covered view from inside our homes.
I'm sure some of you are feeling cooped up with the pandemic and the thought of snow might make you feel like hiding out under the covers. Instead, let's make lemonade outta lemons! Strap on those snow boots, put on some gloves and let's take advantage of some fun, pandemic-friendly winter activities!
Cue the fun bucket list that's worthy of great pictures ...
Let's start with the good ol' favorites like a fun afternoon building snowmen, tubing or sledding down the backyard
hill and catching snowflakes on your tongue. Don't forget to make some snow angels, a fort or have a friendly snowball fight! And ... of course, take lots of pics! Ok, more creative ones coming ...
This album would be great for a ski trip or snowboarding. What about ice fishing or dog sledding?! That's different. How about a weekend in a cozy cabin where you go ice skating on the lake, on a snowshoe hike or ... any kind of shoe hike in the wintery wonderland!
Am I starting to make you feel better about snow? Need something even more creative? Ok I gotcha, keep reading ...
What about snow painting! Just mix water & food coloring. Then put it in a spray bottle or use a cup and a paint brush. You and your kids will love creating outdoor artwork and you will get some great photo worthy moments! They can even paint their snowman or their fort!
Or ... wait for it ... a bejeweled treasure hunt! Fill an ice cube tray with water and a couple drops of food coloring in each mold. Pop the tray in the freezer and once they're frozen, the ice cubes will look like gems. Hide them around the yard and let your kids go on a treasure hunt!
Fun activities and great picture moments! Total win. See?! Creative right?
How about a backyard bonfire! Invite your friends and family to warm themselves next to a toasty fire pit. You can roast marshmallows, makes smores, drink hot chocolate and enjoy a starry night. Quality time enjoying the fresh air and nature.
Or ... have a Family Winter Photo Shoot! Any time you can get the family together is a blessing, but a photo memory of the event is even better!
For some "sweet" moments inside, take an afternoon to bake holiday cookies with the littles and decorate them (the cookies, not the littles! Lol). Ask your mom or grandmother to teach you an old family recipe. Or ... make a gingerbread house and pile on the colorful candy! Great family moments happen in the kitchen. Have your camera ready & save them in this pretty keepsake.
Oh ... here's a good one! Make popcorn garland (using a needle and thread) and decorate an outdoor
tree that you can see from your window. Then you can watch birds and squirrels happily nibble on it for days while you sit inside near the fireplace, reading a good book, sipping warm apple cider and taking photos of the beautiful wildlife you attracted.
If you love being creative, have a fun arts & crafts day as it snows outside. Gather your friends, your mom, or your sister and scrap together! And definitely, most definitely ... make an Artsy Albums scrapbook kit! Yes. I think that might be the best activity I've listed! 😉
This album is the perfect place to save all your favorite wintery pictures. Enjoy this beautiful season, stay positive and happy scrapping my friends!
