Snow Toys and Kits to Make Playing in the Snow More Fun
What kid doesn't love to play in the snow? Even most adults seem to still like to play in the snow.
A good snowfall means it's time to bundle up and head out to build a snowman, build a snow fort or igloo, and have a snowball fight. This can be a lot of work and your hands can get mighty cold if you don't have the right tools.
These days we have all sorts of neat gadgets and tools to make playing in the snow even more fun than ever. I have assembled some really neat gadgets I found. I found kits that make building a snowman, a snow dinosaur and a snow bear super simple. I found gadgets that make perfectly round and packed snowballs. I found a snow block maker that allows you build nice snow forts and igloos. I found a snowball blaster that allows you to launch snowballs quicker than you though imaginable. I also found a really cool 2-person snowboard.
Snow Bear Kit and Snow Dino Kit
These adorable kits take snowman building to a new level. Why not make a snowbear or a snow dinosaur? You can bet all of the kids in the neighborhood will wish they had thought of that! You'll have people stopping to take photos.
Each kit comes with the basic accessories you will need. All you need to add is the snow! The pieces can be stored and reused year after year.
Why not buy several and make a whole family of snow bears or a Jurassic park full of snow dinosaurs?

How to Build an Igloo
If we had enough snow here in Central Texas, you can bet I'd build an igloo. I have always been fascinated in structures made of snow or ice.
This book is considered a must-have if you want to build a structurally sound igloo. Another great product that is sure to help you impress the neighbors with your creation.
Snowman Building Kit
This kit includes all the items you need to build a cute snowman.....except the snow! What I like about this kit is that it even includes the arms. Most kits rely on you to still locate your own twigs.
Kit includes a black felt top hat, a striped scarf, a bucket, plastic eyes, a mouth, black buttons, carrot nose, twig arms, and a pipe.
Snow Screamer for Two
The Snow Screamer is made of lightweight foam, but built to hold two riders. Each rider has a set of sturdy handles to hold on to. The slick bottom allows for higher speeds. It is recommended for ages 5 and up. All you need now is a snowy hill.
