681. How would you describe the taste of snow? Why do you think people enjoy sticking their tongues out during a snowfall? If you could give any flavor to snow, what would it be and why?

682. You are holding a huge snowball in your glove-protected hand. How does the texture of the snow feel through the glove? How would it feel differently if you weren't wearing gloves and why?

683. There are many different varieties of hot chocolate you could drink during the winter, including from a packet, with or without marshmallows, and topped with whipped cream. What do you think is the best-tasting hot chocolate in the world and why? Describe the taste of this treat in great detail.

684. Imagine that your hands are absolutely freezing until someone gives you a cup of hot cocoa to hold onto. How does the toasty cup feel on your hands? Why is it important to keep your hands warm during the winter?

685. What is your favorite taste of the holiday season and why? Would this be a taste you'd want to have all year long? Why or why not? Would it still be as special if you had it every day? Why or why not?

686. Imagine that you have just picked up your first gift to open during the holidays. How do the wrapping paper and tape feel against your hands? How do you feel when you finally get to tear into it and find out what it is and why?

687. Your family has decided to sit by the fireplace and have your favorite winter dish. Describe all of the courses of the meal and how they taste. Does the meal change at all because you're eating it by the toasty fire? Why or why not?

688. How does the warmth from the fireplace feel on your skin? How does it change the way you feel on a cold winter's night? How might a winter indoor fireplace feel different than an outdoor campfire during the spring or fall?

689. Is there anything your parents drink or eat during the winter that you dislike? If so, what is it and what does it taste like to you? If not, come up with a made-up food or drink and describe why you dislike it.

690. There are many winter items like matches, kerosene and lighters that kids aren't allowed to touch. Why do you think it's a good idea for children not to touch these fire-starting objects and substances?
