Game of Forts
Winter is here and you must protect your Kingdom. You have it on good authority that the neighbors are armed with balls of snow and moving in with great speed. Make haste! Gather your men and women and have them build an epic snow fort for protection. Ziploc® containers make the strongest of bricks. Their balls of snow will be no match for your fort—and the battle will go down in history. Game of Forts
Bury a hunt
Sure, snow is great for snowmen and snow angels. But you know what else it’s good for? Hiding things. If you have snow, then you have a perfect playing field for a scavenger hunt. You can use your yard, a local park, or nearby forest preserve. Fill Ziploc® containers with clues and then hide them in different areas—just don’t forget where you hid them :). Each clue will lead hunters to the next container until they find the last container, which can be filled with treats to eat at home with hot cocoa.Bury a hunt
