Here's something I've made many times with my students over the years, after a fresh blanket of snow has come. We didn't get to it this year - it just wasn't in the cards. But if you want to, you can take advantage of this snowy day - it's easy and really delicious.
Enjoy the day and enjoy your children. I hope you all enjoy the extended Mid-Winter Break!
