I’m afraid we are going a little cabin crazy here in Minnesota this winter with mountains of snow every which way we look. My daughter had the idea to make pennants to name the snow piles. When I was young, we played “King of the Mountain” at outdoor recess. It was not a very nice game as the king could push other people down the mountain. That didn’t stop us from trying to climb back up, though. I made this printable for a more cooperative game where really naming and claiming a mound of snow would be fun. We printed and laminated the pennants as it would only take a few minutes for them to get wet. We taped some straws together for the poles, and then taped on the flags. Ready! The children might want a selfie or usie (a group selfie) at the top of the mountain. The activity could be tied to social studies if the children look up where the mountains are and how high they actually are. The instant download opens at the next link.

I am not sure if we need to get out more, stay indoors more, or just have spring already! At this point, even six-year-old Miss Owl says she is, “Just not that into snow.” She is ready for spring. Aren’t we all?
