Getting a baby to eat a snowball for the first time is a little difficult, especially since this is the first snow and since their only food so far has been milk or formula. First you must get the baby accustomed to the snow. Let them look around and check it out! You want their first snow experience to be a good one.

Once the baby gets a good look at the snow, make a snowball and show it to them.
Next, let the baby get a good look at the snowball by holding it up to their face. Baby fascination with snow will soon take over.
Be sure to have camera ready because the face the baby makes once the cold taste of snow registers is priceless!
You definitely want to make sure that the baby gets a good first experience with the snow and eating a snowball is a good first snow step...almost as good as catching a snowflake on their tongue accidentally! Baby's first snow....what a blast!
