Shaping snow

Is snow falling? It's time for the ultimate snow activity. What better way to enjoy the snow than by creating some art, build a snow family or make snow angels let your imagination go wild!


Making art in nature is great.

In the UK, snow only comes a few times a year. But you could use frozen water balloons or ice cubes to build yourself a snow sculpture. Just don’t leave it out in the sun for too long or you’ll be left with a puddle!

This activity is for Rainbow’s through to Rangers, if doing this activity with the older sections talk to them about how you could make it more challenging and adventurous to make sure they are still being taken outside of their comfort zone.
