Winter games


Does anyone play in the snow?
Does anyone make snow forts?
Do you build a snowman
or make snow angels? 

 
One of our favorite snow games was Fox and Goose.
One fox, as many geese as were players.
We would tramp a big circe in the snow
with a cross of paths through the middle, if big enough
we might get a little crazy and  concentric circles! 



The middle was the safe place, the fox chased until he caught a goose.
Then that person had to be the fox! 
Kept your blood circulating and warm. 

There was a big hill between barns #2 and #3.
One year the Old Farmer and his son decided to ice it
to see if we could sled farther and faster! 
I was a bumpy ride but I do believe we doubled our distance.

As a little girl, loved to play in the snow...hahaha think I liked my snow suit more though...give them a gift, and they play in the box! :-D Anyway, been too long since I have made a snow angel. need to work on that.
