Four in One Snow Forts
A sudden snow storm results in two feet of perfect packing snow — and brother and sister want to make snow forts. When their friends Jonathan and Sasha join them, the four of them start on four very different forts. By day's end, however, they decide to collaborate on one fort — a fort that has all four different styles.

Sparkle Craft: Pocket Hand Warmers
We've created a fun tutorial for these very easy-to-make pocket hand warmers. Just pop them in the microwave or in a low oven for a few moments to warm up the rice or beans inside. They will stay warm for quite awhile and that will help keep little fingers nice and toasty — and hopefully help your family enjoy the outside longer.
