Snowflake catching is perfect for those gentle snowfalls with great big flakes. Don?t try it when a blizzard is blowing snow almost horizontally or your kids will run headlong into a tree with their mouths wide open. Not fun. Here?s how it works: Look up into the sky. As soon as you can decipher individual snowflakes, focus on one and follow it with your eyes as it floats down to the ground. Then catch it on your tongue. It?s fun to watch kids play this game because they look so funny staring at the sky, wandering back and forth with their tongues sticking out.
