Default winter roleplay ideas?

Does anybody have any nice ideas for a winter role play? I have thought have creating an igloo using pop u tent and a white sheet or a winter clothes shop. Just wondered what other role play ideas i could try.

The igloo sounds nice!

Inside, you could put...

Warm winter clothes for the children to dress up in
Soft toys such as seals, polar bears, penguins (yes, I know they live at different poles!) etc
Some maps of the North and South poles!
Some icepacks which you replace every day (for H&S, you may need to wrap these to prevent iceburn?) for the children to feel
A fake fire (sticks and tissue paper in a bowl?) and cooking utensils

etc etc

You're welcome!

Another little idea... for mark making, you could add white crayons/chalk on darker paper or get the children to make 'cleaning marks' on chalk boards covered in chalk (so it would be like writing on windows etc that are covered in frost?) Does that make sense?!!

I think I need another glass of wine!!
