Since Mr. Groundhog predicted a few more weeks of winter, I thought it might be a good idea to start posting some fun winter activities for your kids to do at home or school. This photo was taken of my two oldest kids in our backyard while living in Prince George, BC. Because February usually played host to one of our biggest snowfalls, the kids and I would gather fresh snow for snow ice-cream. Here is our favourite recipe:
8 cups snow, or shaved ice
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place snow or shaved ice into a large bowl. Pour condensed milk over and add vanilla. Mix to combine. Serve immediately in bowls.
