If you were like me, and were a slacker about putting away the sand toys at the end of summer, don't fret! You can use those sand toys and buckets to make some pretty cool snow castles.
My daughter actually came up with the idea when she filled just one small bucket with snow and realized she could make snow castles. We pulled out a few of our other small buckets and sand castle shapes and built in the snow for a while. I think snow packs even better than wet sand!
