Outdoor Invitation to Play...Snow Restaurant!


Just a few days ago, we had tons of snow in our yard...Today, it's 60 degrees and all that's left of our snowman is a pile of sticks, stones, and a carrot!  The kids and I headed outside to play in the warm weather a few days ago as the warm spell was beginning to melt away the snow.  I wanted to get the kids outside to enjoy the last of the snow before it was gone (for now...)
This is the invitation to play I set up...I pulled out our little kitchen set...with no battery operated parts or stickers on it to worry about getting wet.
I brought out a couple of spoons, ladles, and the ice cream scoop from my kitchen, and added a few plastic containers from the recycle bin. 
Perfect outdoor restaurant!
Big Sister had so much fun with this!  She got busy being the "chef".

Order's Up!
