Moms, I found this super cool blogger Frugal Upstate that had a great article on snowy day activities to do when school is closed and your kids are starring at you to be fun! I came up with snow ice cream, but Jenn came up with 40+ things to do outside & inside.
“When I was a kid having a school snow day was like an unexpected gift-suddenly, for no reason you get a WHOLE DAY, right smack in the middle of the week. No school!! The thrill! The joy!
Every time there was so much as a flake in the sky we’d scramble for the radio and listen anxiously hoping against hope that in the regular mix of morning show banter and songs we’d get that magical list of schools that were closed. And oh the anxiety if we caught the list half way through. . . we’d have to wait another 10 minutes until they ran through it again!
As an adult with 2 primary school aged children to entertain I have to admit that snow days don’t fill me with quite the same joy they once did. I work on letting go of my anxiety about all the things I’m “supposed” to be getting done and use it as a special day to connect with my kids. With a little thought and inspiration you can use snow days to build special memories with your kids-even teens!”
To get you started on your own snow day fun, here are 40 fun things to do on a school snow day.
