2014 49¢ Winter Fun Block of 4

Holiday Celebrations Series

 

In climates where the temperature drops in the winter months, ice and snow can pose quite an inconvenience.  Roads get slippery, traffic slows down, windows stay closed, and the days seem short and dark.  But there are many fun ways to take advantage of the chilly weather conditions. 

 

When the powder settles, birds that weather the cold north emerge.  The snow-laden ground under a feeder might be dotted with chickadees or little yellow goldfinches.  The attentive birdwatcher may even spy an occasional cardinal or blue jay perched outside a frosted window. 

 

In the coldest months, ponds and lakes freeze solid, providing natural skating rinks.  Children and adults alike take to the ice for recreation or sport.  Throughout the season, loops and figure eights are lightly carved into the ice. 

 

Blizzards and snow squalls provide fresh new supplies for snowmen, snow forts, and snow angels.  Each dusting creates a new canvas for the winter artists.  Children spend hours playing and creating frosty works of art before going inside to thaw and maybe warm up with a cup of hot chocolate.

 

Though the season may sometimes seem dark and dreary, with the right motivation winter fun is limited only by the imagination.
