Where to go Sledding & Snow Day Fun in Wichita

Yes, it’s a snow day in Wichita. The first order of business is to make a snow fort or have a snowball fight or sled down the stairs on the back deck, but once our hands are frozen, what’s there to do?

Here are some ideas. Please add some of your own if you have any!

(And if you scroll down, we share a couple of good sledding hills in Wichita. If you know of any we missed, tell us about them in the comments.)

Make SNOW ice cream! Jennifer shared this on our Facebook page:

“How about a snow ice cream recipe? Just mix 8 cups clean fresh snow with 1 cup milk, half cup sugar, and half tablespoon vanilla. Yum! You can also add chocolate syrup. Thanks, Jennifer!

You can substitute 1 can of sweetened condensed milk for the milk and sugar. Other readers suggested using KoolAid or Jello to make a homemade snow cone.
