DIY goes outdoors, giving winter enthusiasts more than 25 new ways to play in the snow!

Calling all snow lovers—young and old alike! When you’re surrounded by the white stuff, it’s time for Snow Play!

With crazy creatures to build, challenging games to play, and outrageous spaces to sculpt, author Birgitta Ralston, a Europe-based designer, has imagined the most creative ways to play in the snow. From a looming Loch Ness monster to a slippery Ice Slide, from a Snowball Lantern to brighten a yard to Curious Footprints to mark freshly fallen snow, the book includes 25 projects and games to draw you outdoors on a snow-filled day. Celebrate a winter birthday by building a giant Frosted Cake (and use food coloring to dye the snow!), or light your walkway with the flickering flames from a set of snowy Glow Cones.  You’ll find hours of entertainment to brighten even the coldest winter days and nights.

Snow Play is filled with projects and games for any age, ability, and number of people. Each entry includes complete step-by-step text instructions, plus explanatory line drawings. The full-color photographs show how each project is finished in all its frozen glory.

Awesome ideas! Just add snow and imagination. Who wouldn't want a Loch Ness Snow monster on their front lawn?
