Make a Snow Cone with Poem #285!

World's Largest Snow Cone
by Amy LV

Students - I love eating snow!  Freshly fallen snow is the yummiest, and every time I eat it, I am reminded of snow cones at the fair.  We had a snowfall this afternoon, and I thought about how our whole yard looked like one big fat snow cone.  Wouldn't it be fun to pour gallons of grape juice all over the hills and dig in?

Another thing we love to eat in wintertime (and anytime) is maple syrup.  Here is a delicious recipe for maple sugar on snow, a tasty treat you may remember from the LITTLE HOUSE books. My mother-in-law tells us how she used to eat this as a girl, and we've eaten it with much joy.  If you live somewhere snowy, make some for yourself.  If you don't live in a snowy place, tuck this idea away for a someday-snow-visit.

If you must have an electric snow cone maker, I have my eyes on this machine!
