Rub a dub dub, snowman in the bathtub

What do you do when your two year old wants to play in the snow, but you're busy with a baby, and the wind is nasty?  Bring it indoors!  We packed up some snow in a little ice cream bucket, and let Isaac play with it in the tub.  Next time though, I'll remember to put on his mittens {his hands were FREEZING when he was done}, and slip some shoes on his feet so his socks don't get soaked.  Clearly, I was just so excited about my brilliant solution to his begging to play in the snow that I just discarded all practical thoughts about what it actually takes to play in it!

I like that solution. Alternatively, you could have just sent Sophie out there with him. :)

We did that when we were in Boston a couple years ago. Abby made a snowman at the kitchen counter on a cookie sheet...it was totally awesome :)
