Winter Fest Fun


 Last weekend was Winter Fest in my town!  :) Yes even in the freezing weather of Wisconsin we can find fun outside!  :) It started out on Friday evening with FIREWORKS.  I think that was the first time I have ever watched fireworks in the winter.  It was a bit chilly but it was worth it and we had a great view of the show.  :)

The next day there were several activities planned out throughout the down town area.  We started out doing some mini golf, yes in the snow!  We actually used a tennis ball instead of a golf ball since there were snow obstacles.  :) My daughter did a great job and I let my lil guy kick the ball and he did better kicking them me swinging.  

After the golfing fun we headed to the main area where they made a huge snow sculpture and slide.  My daughter wanted to keep going down the slide since it was so FUN.  My lil guy was to cold to even want to try the slide.  

There were carriage rides, chili cook-off, free hot cocoa and apple cider, Ice sculpting  free ice skating, cookie decorating, and so much more.  

Sadly my lil guy only lasted about an hour in the cold so we headed home to take a long nap and warm up.  :)

Does your town do any fun winter activities?

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
