Slushy, Icy, Snow Day Fun!



The Spark:
Possibly the most awesome of all days are kinda snowy, a little icy, sort of rainy, and considerably slushy!  Did you ever encounter all of these weather conditions in one day?  If so, your next nature quest begins here.  Do I even need to spark your interest to start this quest?  I'm guessing your answer is no.  Slush occurs in nature when super cold weather starts to subside and snow melts into wet ice crystals and usually collects rocks and mud to become a sloshy, wet, brown, mess of ice, water, and snow.  How amazing!  Let's play....

Interested?
Are you interested in playing in the slush?  Calling all Super Natural Superheroes to ACTIVATE!  Let's find out more about slush and how we can use slush in outdoor play.  Start you quest with the question WHY?
