A Snow Angel by Another Name

Fair warning:

If you let your kid lie down at the playground to make gravel angels,

…more parents will find it as funny than you might expect.

Some will even let their children join in the fun.

You’ve probably already discovered this truth for yourself, what with the rampant popularity of gravel angels and all. My children, for example, have only to notice fine bits of gravel before they throw themselves gleefully to the ground to grind gravel holes happily into their clothes. Don’t yours?

Truly, a snow angel by another name is not as clean but is just as sweet. And joy is joy is joy is joy; in any package, it’s joy.

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.

  1. We haven’t made gravel angels, but since we live in California, my kids love sand angels. Easier on the clothes I would imagine.

  2. I must be too old to appreciate this. All I can think of is that it sounds painful.

  3. Yup. ” true dat” or ” yeah, you rite” however you say it, ’tis true.

  4. we’ve never tried making gravel angels… should we? I bet I could find some gravel around here somewhere… there’s a tennis court nearby actually, bet they won’t mind hehehe 😉
