Okay, not really but to a 3 year old who has never seen real snow this is as close as it gets.
He only knows what snow does, it falls from the sky as seen on tv or read about in books.
To my amazement one day, we had opened the blinds one morning and he was screaming SNOW SNOW, it was the dust particles flying in the morning light shining in.He was so giddy and acting like he was catching it in his hands, even had his mouth open to try to catch the falling flakes.
Oh, to see the joy on a 3 year olds face seeing "SNOW" for the first time.
We continued playing in the "SNOW" the rest of the morning.
It led to playing in our shadows in that little piece of light that comes into our home.
He was thrilled and has such a BIG imagination that it makes me sit back and smile.
No toys needed, nope just some dust and light :)
