It’s a snow day and school is canceled. Now what?
It’s the perfect opportunity to have some snow fun with the family!!!
On snow days we like to:
1. Play in the Snow!
Start out with some play time in the snow. We love to make snow angels, snowmen and have a snowball fight. The kids also enjoy sledding at our local park. We take the kids out early in the day when the snow is still nice and white. We spend a few hours frolicking in the snow.
2. Have warm treats!
After playing in the snow we head back home for some hot cocoa and smores. The kids love warming up with their favorite chocolaty drink and treats that they make themselves.
3. Snow Crafts!
We then make winter/snow related crafts. The crafts below are some of our favorites. Cotton ball snowman, white snow paint snowman and snowflakes!
Our kids love doing these crafts!
4. Watch Winter Themed Movies!
When craft time is done we gather in our living room for a few winter themed movies- Frozen, Ice Age and Happy Feet just to name a few. Let’s not forget about the snacks. We pop a bag of our favorite popcorn and everyone gets a Fruit Shoot. Fruit Shoot® is the perfect refreshing fruit drink, you can find them at your local Walmart or Pizza Hut. If you purchase a Fruit Shoot® at your local Pizza Hut® from Nov 10, 2016 – April 30, 2017, $0.5 of each purchase will go to support the First Book literacy program.
5. Play Board Games!
To end our snow day we pull out all our broad games and play for several hours!
