Waking up to a snow-covered world, children dash outdoors:
“We’re silly-willy laughy, feeling slightly daffy, leaping through the snow—
Follow along as they playfully romp through the freshly-fallen snow: sledding, shoveling, making snow angels, and throwing snowballs. Even the woodland animals are taking part in the winter fun!
At the end of a satisfying day, the children go home to shed wet clothes and enjoy hot cocoa by the fire, tired yet exhilarated. It’s what every snowy day should be!
