It’s been a long time since we’ve had enough snow to re-up this post!
You won’t find tons of content here, but we’ve got plenty of link love if you need some new snow play ideas. I also have a few ideas for sledding spots. If you’ve got better ones, please do share.
Need a recipe for snow ice cream? Try this one.
Want warmer fun? Try my snowflake making post!
You’re looking for something different to do? If the kids are already tired of snowballs and sledding, I have some creative ideas that are especially good for little ones in my post on new ideas for snow play. It’s an old, ugly post, but I promise the ideas are still good ones.
Want to know where to sled? First, please do not sled anywhere with rocks, roots, or traffic. Please do not ever, ever, ever pull a child (or a grown-up) behind your car. Also, my legal team wants you to know these are all places I’ve heard about; none are spots I’ve done personally, and you’re responsible for your own adventures! Moving on….. In Tacoma, lots of folks head to Wright Park, and the TNT always seems to have pics of sledders in the bowl at the zoo. A Facebook reader also recommends Celebration Park. In Puyallup, a lot of kids go to Ferruci Junior High. This is probably against the rules officially. Several of our friends go to Woodland Elementary. A reader suggested Woodbine Cemetery, of all places. I think Bradley Lake will work if you can keep from going on to the path.
If you know a fun and safe sledding spot elsewhere, please leave a note! I’ve gotten several hits from folks looking for spots in Gig Harbor. I grew up there, but we mostly did our sledding in the backyard. One year we had a blast in a new development, but I’m pretty sure houses have been built on those roads in the last 20 or so years!
Whatever you do today, I hope you have fun and take lots of cute pics! I’ll be back later today with more fun ideas for your week!
