Something to Think About This December

Since the kids were born, our family has started a little tradition.

Before the snow melts, I make a point of shaping a number of snowballs for future use. Then, at the height of summer, I pull them out for a little snowy fun. The kids enjoy holding the snowballs, eating chunks out of them, and debating the worthiness of throwing them at each other.

I usually store a small amount of snowballs, but depending on the size of your freezer, you could conceivably provide enough for a good old fashioned snowball fight in the middle of July.

The only downside? Snow doesn't last long in 90 degree heat. But I think that's why my kids find it so wonderful.
