What do you do with a week filled with ice and snow? You don’t stay inside especially when school’s cancelled because of a snow storm or two. No. You put on your snow suits and…
Skate on the ice. And when the snow starts falling again…
You dance among the snowflakes.
And search for tracks in the snowy woods.And roll large snow balls just because.
Then at the end of the week you get out your sleds. And keep sliding up and down a slope made of ice and snow.
Note: Our winter ice and snow play took place in the Hamptons, NY. Read here about ice skating in the Hamptons.

Oh wow Kriss it looks so beautiful there. Sounds like you had a great time and I love the photos, just wonderful 🙂
There definitely was lots of snow to play in this week! Thanks Charly
So much fun! I think they’ve covered every snow & ice option there! Lovely photos x
The only thing I didn’t allow them to do was snow angels as they always get snow down their necks and it was too cold for that!
Looks as though the kids got to sample lots of fabulous activities in the snow. I’m guessing they were completely worn out at the end of each day?
I wish! Somehow they always have more energy when it’s time for bedtime 🙂
The only thing missing is a snowman, although with all the fun they managed to fit in I don’t think they had time. Lovely photos of winter snow fun, thanks for linking up and making us feel a little jealous on Country Kids.
Aah perhaps this weekend. Thanks Fiona!
Beautiful photos, the snow makes everything seem so pretty
One good thing about being in the country versus the city is that you don’t get all the dirty sludge. Thanks for stopping by.
So jealous! We’re having endless wet weather and no snow over here. Both my boys have been looking mournfully at the sledges hanging in our garden shed! Looks like you’ve had lots of fun. #CountryKids
My kids love it but I’m looking forward to Spring.
Ah, yes! Looks like our week (minus the ice skating!). It is good fun, and it is beautiful, but I am definitely done with snow for this year 🙂 Your photos are gorgeous, I’ve been struggling to get decent shots because it’s been quite sunny, so the glare is incredible! I too am looking forward to Spring 🙂 #CountryKids
Looks so much fun and your kids are gorgeous!
It looks like you’ve been having an awful lot of fun! You have some beautiful photos to show for it too 🙂

Really beautiful photos, you’ve captured so much enjoyment!
To add to your list of snow activities – two I’ve learnt in Sweden: building igloos! (just making a big big pile and then hollowing it out); and snow ball lanterns (which look absolutely gorgeous later on when it gets dark,
…and one from a blog I just found, @FamilyDaysTriedAndTested, Freezing Bubbles:
It looks like loads of fun 🙂
That looks like so much fun! I wish we had snow here, instead of rain… And your photos are beautiful (as are your children – gorgeous smiles)!
