Finally on Monday evening Dungannon got some snow & it was still there on Tuesday morning so the children were so excited to see the playground coated in a blanket (albeit a very thin one) of snow.
Most of them got into their 'rain gear' immediately so they could whizz down the slide & knock the snow off it at the bottom, or climb on the snowy tree trunks & logs.
Eventually after about 30 minutes we had everyone dressed in their waterproofs & set off for a walk up to the 'big school' playground. It is such a big area & generally we are the only ones who use it on snowy days.
The children had so much fun making snow angels & throwing snowballs & just running about in the snow. Whilst we were out having so much fun, we could see several faces appearing at the windows as the older children watched on with envy! Hopefully, soon they will also have waterproofs & wellies & be able to get out & enjoy snow when we get it.
I'm adding this to the Country Kids link up over at Coombe Mill.
