Tulsa Snow Storm Anyone? Easy Handmade Snow (or sandpile) "scoop"

So, for those of you who have spent some of the last week unexpectedly snowed in, I I found a quick and easy "shovel" for your kids to play in the snow with.  I used to make these for the snow pile... but they work just as well in snow.  You can also just cut the bottom off straight and have a "brick" mold for igloos!
 Take your liquid laundry soap jug, use a sharp knife, cut like so:
Make sure to clean up any sharp edges, they can go play in the snow without trying to manhandle a big shovel!

You can make a lesson out of it and the kids can have a blast building a REAL igloo:

Or, if you're too cold to go outside, save up used jugs and build an inside version!
