Just because the temperature is negative, doesn’t mean you have to be. This winter’s Polar Vortex brought record low temperatures, so throw on some mittens and grab a sled, because here’s how to make a deep freeze REALLY COOL!
Make popsicles the natural way: Fill up an ice tray with juice, pop some sticks in it, and leave it outside overnight. (Just make sure to put a cover over it so the squirrels don’t get a taste before you do.)
Dogs and cats grow more fur in the cold to keep warm, which makes a Polar Vortex the perfect time to practice being an animal hairstylist. (It also makes them MUCH cuddlier!)
Snow is constant and plentiful…perfect snowman weather. And if it’s too cold to stay out long enough for a full-sized snow-person, go mini with a snow-chipmunk or snow-insect.
Since hats are an important part of keeping warm, take this opportunity to rock as many crazy hats as possible. This includes hats that look like animals, Santa hats, and sombreros.
Draw pictures in the snow by pouring different colored juices and natural liquids in cool designs. Give a park a polka-dotted field by dripping spots of orange juice and pea soup all over the place!
