Fun Things to do in the Snow

1) Go sledding! Get a sled, make a sled out of cardboard, and just go!
2) Build a snowman. Roll some balls, big or small. Build a snowman together. Find rocks for eyes, twigs for arms, and wrap him up warm with a hat and scarf!
3) Have a snowball fight! Show the kids how to make a snowball. Have target practice. Set up something to throw at and let the kids get some practice in throwing!
4) Build a snow fort. Pack the walls together to build a safe place for hiding out!
5) While you’re out shoveling the driveway or sidewalk, let the kids help! Or have them make their own paths… maybe a snow maze!
6) Stomp through the snow and make footprints!
7) Instead of making your own footprints, look for animal prints! Can you find rabbit prints? Squirrels? Deer? Discover what’s in your backyard! Not sure? Take pictures of the animal tracks and look them up together later.
8) After a fresh snowfall, go lay out in it and make some snow angels together. Make a whole snow angel family.

Happiness Quote:

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Health Tip!

Eat your meals the same time every day. One of our biggest stressors is not finances or marriage but the lack of a regular routine, says oncologist David B. Agus, MD, in his book The End of Illness. Even simply eating lunch an hour later than usual can spike levels of the stress hormone cortisol and disrupt your body’s ideal state. Try to eat, sleep, and exercise at the same time every day, 365 days a year.


Orange Cup Bird Feeders

What you’ll need:

left-over empty orange halves
a bowl of snow
spoons
muffin tin
a few pantry ingredients (i.e. nuts, raisins, assorted fruit and berries, sunflower seeds)

To make our orange-cup feeders, start by squeezing several oranges. When you have enough orange cups, have your child place them in the wells of a muffin tin. This is a hands-free way to hold the orange halves steady while you fill them. In the middle of our muffin tin, I placed 2 paper cupcake liners. I filled those with our raisins and peanuts. Using spoons or scoops, have the kids fill each orange cup with snow. Then sprinkle the snow with the goodies from your pantry cupboards, and gently press them down into the snow. You’ll want to work somewhat quickly so your snow doesn’t melt too much. When your feeders are full, set them outside to prevent any further melting. Distribute your feeders throughout the yard and gardens!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Prep: 15 m
Cook: 7 h
Ready In: 7 h 15 m

Ingredients:

1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)


Directions: 

1) Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
2) Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.
