We have so much snow right now. Even with it being warm enough to actually melt some this winter, we have way more than usual at this time. Naturally, it makes sense to go searching for ideas on what do in the snow.

You have the usual, make a snowman, go sledding, ice skate and have a snowball fight. But what if you tried something a little different and had some fun with the snow that involved molding the snow? I had seen these little contraptions before, but I hadn't really stopped to look at them, until someone shared a post on Facebook demonstrating them again.

A while back my friends and I started collecting rubber duckies from a claw machine when spending time in lakes country during the summer. That this one immediately caught my eye as something each of us needed to carry this on during the winter months. But it also got me curious on what other molds there are out there. Here are my 5 other favorites I'd LOVE to see in yards all over Minnesota this winter. So get to choosing which one is your favorite and I hope to see them soon everywhere!

  • YETI

Feel this is very appropriate for Minnesota. It's like the equivalent of Bigfoot for winter, so imagine having these hidden around your yard in the winter in random places for people to see them. Find it at L.L. Bean

  • PENGUINS

These little adorable cold weather birds are begging to be lining your driveway or sidewalk for the winter. Stick lights by them and let them shine all over!

  • DINOSAURS

There isn't a kid or an adult around who wouldn't have fun with this mold. This particular mold (found here) I found is a smaller one, so you could be having a snowball fight with dinosaurs and how much cooler does that sound than having a regular round snowball fight?

  • HEART

Take this (heart) mold and make these cool hearts all over your yard for Valentine's day. OR better yet, make a giant heart will little hearts and really impress your love by adding food coloring to them and making them red, pink, or purple...or maybe all those colors and mix in a few without any food coloring.
