Snow Zoo

We love playing in the snow.

We tried to think of something we could do in this snow even though it

Our pathsThe lion cagewasn’t deep enough to go sledding or packable enough to build anything. I really wanted to go outside for some fresh air so David and I got an idea to make a zoo!

We made paths with our feet and with a stick made lines representing cages. I didn’t think From house to pond!we could make it very large but we kept adding sections. The first one was for desert and plains animals, the second for jungle animals, and the section around the pond was for sea life. There was a cage for about every animal you could think of.

Before we knew it, we had covered the area between our house and the pond: a distance of about 130 yards!

Approaching a need, task or an idea from a new perspective.

    That is definitely a good example of creativity! You also demonstrated resourcefulness: from the looks of that last picture there wasn’t much snow at all on the hill, but with the snow in the “valley” you came up with something that was just as much fun as sledding. We ought to be grateful to the Lord both for fresh air and for fresh ideas!

    That sounds like a lot of fun! Did you make some kind of aviary for birds? I’m so glad you made time to make a visual tour of your zoo; once it’s melted, we will never be able to see it again!

    Yes James, we made an aviary, aquarium, and an Insect house!
