Snow Day!

So we have our first snow day today....only there isn't snow on the ground.
I think there were some icy streets that kept us out.

DS is sad b/c today he was going to get to visit the school library to check out a book (too bad our city libraries are closed on Friday).

If you have a snow day today...what fun things are you doing? I know staying inside can be mindless somedays.

Re: Snow Day!

We are having indoor snow fun. It's too cold for me to take my 9month old out and the boys aren't old enough to play outside alone (4 and 2). We brought in a big rubbermaid/bucket type thing full of snow. They sat at the table with spoons, pots and pans and made snow soup and snow muffins. Then we got out icecream cones and a scoop to make snow cones. Now they are having a snow-ball fight in the kitchen with what's left over

We bring the snow inside too. Play -doh is always a hit...personally I like laundry parties...where we dump all the clean clothes (I HATE putting away laundry) onto the living room floor and everyone helps put it away...even the baby crawls in the pile. Lol! My oldest got Sooo excited the first time we did this...not anymore. Lol!

Re: Snow Day!

Fun! I never thought to bring the snow in where they could play in it without getting bundled up (that takes 20 min for 5 min of play!). Its probably less of a mess and easier clean up than playing in dried rice and beans.

Laundry party sounds fun since the kids clothes do sit in the baskets after being clean for an undisclosed amount of time.
I have a 5 yo, 2.5 yo, 11 mo old. The oldest two have discovered how fun it is to use pillows and blankets to make tents and forts in the playroom around the couch and such.

Re: Snow Day!

our snow day has been me cleaning this house. This work week was insane, I needed the day for 12 loads of laundry and other cleaning. We'll make cookies and play boards games after supper
