Why do kids love the Snow4Kids Snow Village?

Where else can you build a ‘REAL’ snowman in SEQ? If an interstate snow trip is not possible this year Snow4Kids is definitely the next best thing!

Your kids can enjoy snowball and snowman making, the experience of playing in ‘real’ snow and general snow silliness!

What should we wear to Snow4Kids Snow Village?

The snow is freezing as it is real fresh and clean snow. Our kids loved the snow but it does make you wet after a while. So make sure you pack gloves if you plan to handle the snow. Organisers do provide buckets, spades and other snow sculpting items but we still think gloves are a must. Layer up too, so you can adjust your clothing to the temps on the day. Better to be overprepared then have to buy extra items in a panic while out. Consider a change of clothes for the kids if you don’t want them hanging around in wet pants from sitting on the ice. We recommend you pack:

  • Closed in shoes
  • Gloves (A must for little ones)
  • Beanie and scarf if you want to get into the theme of the event
  • A jumper that you can remove if it gets warm
