On a snowy day when I get outside I make a snow angel, and then I go and get my neighbor friends and sometimes we make a snowman. Next we sometimes just eat snow. And I know it might sound weird, but it’s just kind of like water but we all eat it! My two dogs love snow. I usually bring them outside. There names are Archie and Maisie. Archie is a 1 year old and Maisie is 4 years old and she sometimes pull off our gloves and thinks its funny!

Today is a snow day. My favorite thing to do on a snow day from school is to play in the snow because I can play with my siblings and have fun with them. Another reason I like to play in the snow on a snow day is because I can make a snow pile and throw myself into it. Then I’d rebuild it and do it again and again, until I get tired. The last reason I like playing in the snow on a snow day is because I can put snow in a bucket and wait until it turns into cold water. Then I would get a hot bath after to warm me up. These are some of the reasons why playing in the snow is my favorite thing to do on a snow day from school.

Today is a snow day. My favorite thing to do on a snow day from school is drink hot chocolate. Then, I’ll make it with hot water, chocolate powder, marshmallows, and honey. Next, I’ll go outside with my hot chocolate and if my patio table has a lot of snow on it, I will set my hot chocolate on it and it will cool down. I’ll put my cup in the sink and then I’ll go play. Drinking hot chocolate on a snow day from school is my favorite thing to do.
