Winter Activity// Snow Ice Cream

We are on our second snow day here. Winter storm Kayla rolled through & dropped about 2 feet of snow all over & brought some crazy wind that has led to high snow drifts. So we have spent the better part of our Monday & Tuesday at home. Grey & I are working on getting over colds so we haven't (yet) ventured out to play in the snow & were getting a little crazy. 
I had Greg stick a bowl outside yesterday amongst all of the non-stop snow falling to collect lots of fresh snow. I planned to use it for a treat last night, but we were a little under the weather so I held off & it made a perfect snow day activity & treat! 

I found a few different recipes online for snow ice cream. We went with basic vanilla since we had all of the ingredients on hand. I combined a few & worked it to how much we wanted to make:

- 1 cup 2% milk - any will work 
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar 
- 1 tsp vanilla 
- Pinch of salt 
- 8 cups of dense snow - more if it's thinner snow fall 
- Sprinkles 

Mix the milk, sugar, vanilla & salt together in a bowl. Add to the snow, slowly while stirring. It should be a thicker consistency. When it reaches the consistency you want, put some in a bowl & add some colorful sprinkles for a fun treat! Enjoy soon after making since it will melt fairly quickly.
