The question is: What can we do with our little ones on these days?
1) Design a treasure hunt with clues that will take the kids around the house, searching for hidden household odds and ends. Tuck a measuring cup on a bookshelf or hide a book under the rug. The winner earns a piece of candy or gets to decide what the family plays next. The hunt is the fun, no matter what the results.
2) Pull a children's book off the shelf and create a play. Improvise costumes from clothes in your closet. Practice the play throughout the day and perform the skit after dinner.
3) Make Edible Snowflakes – Fold flour tortillas in fourths and use scissors to cut shapes out of the folds, just like when you cut a paper snowflake, Brush with melted butter. sprinkle on cinnamon sugar and bake at 350 degrees until crispy. Yum!
4) Freeze Dance – Put on some music and let the kids get some energy out by dancing. When the music stops they have to freeze in place. Anyone who moves while frozen is out. The winner is the last person dancing.
5) Fill a few spray bottles with a few drops of non toxic paint and water. Bring in a pan of fresh snow and let the kids spray paint on snow. Talk about how the colors blend to make new colors and what happens when the colored mixture hits the snow. This activity is a fun art and science project rolled into one.
How ever you choose to spend your Snow Day – Be sure to make the most of it and Enjoy!
