Fifty Words for Snow challenge - February 2022

Fifty Words for Snow challenge - February 2022
The most magical of elements, snow can transform our environment in the merest of moments and, in the careful hands of author Nancy Campbell, can connect us to places and cultures around the world.
__


As February is the UK's most snowsure month, Fifty Words for Snow should, hopefully, settle on your doorstep right alongside the white stuff.

To encourage everyone to make the most of snow's increasingly rare appearance, we're setting our community the challenge of sharing fifty words for snow on social media.

Whether you're a subscriber or not, choose your favourite word for snow (those in the book are listed below) and head out into the white stuff.

Take a picture, or better still film yourself describing your favourite word, and share it on social media with the tag #fiftywordsforsnow. Be sure to mention and/or tag @adventurousinkclub so we can share your contribution to inspire others. Do share this post too; everyone needs an excuse for a snow day!
