There’s no need for real snow in order to play this game – although we have plenty of that out the door. Instead, fill a container with kosher salt and pretend to unearth the treasures that have been buried in the “snow”.
Travis helped me select a few small items from around the house, including a playing dice, rubber bands, clothespin, key, and coin.
I wrote down all the words in a list and we glued this to the top of a mason jar lid, so we wouldn’t forget what we “buried”!
Glue a colorful ribbon around the lid to make the jar feel festive. Now alternate adding kosher salt and the items until nearly full, leaving a bit of room at the top.
Travis and I took turns shaking the jar and finding everything on the list. What detectives we were!
Here’s hoping we don’t lose anything in a real snowdrift this winter.
