- Fashion a Frozen Runway: Turn your yard into a catwalk by sculpting snow into the shape of an icy runway. Invite your friends over for a “freezing fashion” show and strut your stuff in the most outlandish winter outfits you can find. Remember, the more impractical, the better!
- Snow-sicles: Boil some water, add food coloring, and pour the liquid into ice trays. Place them outdoors to freeze, then create your own snow-sicle garden by planting the colorful ice sticks around your yard.
- Snow Angel Olympics: Host a competition to see who can create the most outrageous snow angel. Categories might include “Most Acrobatic,” “Least Symmetrical,” and “Biggest Mess.”
- Ice Sculpture Roulette: Challenge your friends to a game of ice sculpture roulette. Each person gets 30 minutes to sculpt a mystery item out of snow – but the twist is that everyone must use random household objects as tools!
- Snowman Beauty Pageant: Organize a beauty pageant for snowmen, complete with a talent portion and evening wear. The winner receives a melting crown – made from frozen water, of course.
- Frosty Food Fight: Prepare an assortment of frozen foods and let the icy projectiles fly! Throw frozen peas, waffles, and even ice cream at each other, but beware of the inevitable brain freeze.
- Build a Snowball Incubator: Collect a variety of snowballs and store them in your freezer. Come summertime, host a snowball fight when no one expects it.
- Sub-Zero Spa Day: Pamper yourself with an at-home spa day. Create DIY snow face masks, plunge your feet into a bucket of fresh snow, and chill your cucumbers in the frosty air.
- Snowy Hair Salon: Style your hair using snow as a styling product. The results may be frosty and temporary, but at least you’ll have an excuse for a bad hair day.
