Snow Day Hacks

Winter is here! One truth about winter you may have noticed is that there’s snow day lovers and snow day haters. I count myself firmly in the first category and also hold the opinion that some people who don’t like snowy days just may need to explore the opportunities they bring more and learn how have some winter fun! Snow Day Hacks

1. Get Outside And Play in the Snow. Build a Snowman, Go Sledding, Build an Igloo. Just get outside with your kids and enjoy the time off.

This past snow day I took my kids (ages 5 and 7) cross country skiing and we had a blast. It was beautiful; the snow was falling and it was quiet. I didn’t know what to expect but they really liked it. I was thrilled. Skiing tours and picnics are popular and can be fun for all ages. Even the youngest family members can come along in a pack or sled.

2. Make snowflakes of your own. Set out scissors and a stack of copy paper and let the kids go crazy. You can help them fold and cut snowflakes with multiple points or trace on a special pattern. Disney even released a PDF of “Frozen” designs.

3. Have a dance party in your living room. Once the children are tired and sweaty, let them take naps in blanket forts.

4. Create your own silly putty. Pour Elmer’s Glue-All multipurpose glue into a bowl with some food coloring and Sta-Flo concentrated liquid starch. Stir, let it rest for five minutes and knead it into a putty, according to PBS. Then you’re ready to bounce.

5. Produce and solve custom word searches. Discovery Education’s Puzzlemaker is easy for kids and parents to use. Just input how big you want the word search to be, what words it should include and what format you want. Then print, exchange and get to work highlighting.
