The older you get, the less fun snow seems to be. Whilst it used to mean days off school spent sledging, building snowmen or having mass snowball fights, more often than not this is not the case when you are older.
It could mean a longer commute to work in the snow as everyone seemingly forgets how to drive, or having to take unnecessary holidays when the schools shut so there is someone to stay with the kids. With more snow forecast to be heading our way we’ve taken a look at 5 things you should definitely own that might just make the snow that bit more fun for you this year.
If you don’t fancy going out, why not avoid the snow altogether? It’s an ideal time to get cracking on the latest season of your favourite box set or start on a new one.
It’s no fun heading out to have some fun in the snow, only to return 5 minutes later with sopping wet clothes. To avoid this and make sure you stay dry, invest in some waterproof clothing! Something like these waterproof overalls would be ideal.
Who doesn’t enjoy sledging? The trick to this is to buy a sledge before the snow makes an appearance so you don’t feel as though you are being ripped off – which you are. It also means that if you have your sledge to hand you can be the first one out on that gloriously white and undisturbed snow, making the first tracks in it. Who wants to be second?
If you’re tired of the same old snowman building and sledging invest in some coloured dye for your next snow day. If you mix it with water and put in old spray bottles you can start creative! Go crazy and create graffiti paintings all over the snow which will wash away in a couple of days when the snow melts.
It’s a sad and boring fact of life that often an adult’s snow day will consist of clearing said snow so that they can make it into work the following day – hardly the most fun way to spend ones day. To make this easier on yourself invest in a snow shovel (as with the sledge, do this before the snow actually hits and prices triple overnight) and you can be the hero of the street the next day.
