Guide to Frost
Frost crystals grow from water vapor in the air, just like snow crystals. But while snow crystals form on suspended dust particles high in the clouds, frost crystals form near the ground on window panes, blades of grass or other solid surfaces.
Snowcrystals.com offered lots of information on the different kinds of frost including the art of growing your own snowflakes and designer frost at: http://www.its.caltech.edu/~atomic/snowcrystals/designer1/designer1.htm
You can also stop in at the library to check out books of fun things to do in the snow, or just check out a movie to watch from inside the warm house while admiring the frost designs on your windowpane.
