5 Snow Day Activities!

While you are stuck inside with your kiddos, here are some activities and tips to help you ENJOY your Snow Day, instead of just surviving!
 

1) Indoor Snow!

Tired of being out in the cold, but kids want to play in the snow? Make this for hours of sensory fun. Pro tip: Put it in the middle of a tarp, plastic tablecloth, or an old sheet for easier cleanup!

2) Snow Day worksheets and printables!

Print them out and let the kids get creative! Pro Tip: Have an extra large box in the house? Put the kids, markers, crayons, etc in the box and don’t worry about your tables and walls! This is a nice collection for several ages:

3) Indoor Obstacle Course!


Take your living room, playroom or bedroom, and make an obstacle course. Set up sturdy toys to climb over, pillows to jump on, hang a ball to jump up and hit, etc. Then have races!
 

4) Yoga/Exercise Class!


Call out exercises or show the kids yoga poses to get them moving! They will love trying to do them, especially if you get involved. Bonus: it uses a lot of energy!

5) Animal Parade!

Pick a parade route around your house. Put some music on and march the route like an animal! Crawl like a bear or crab, slither like a snake, stomp like a dinosaur!
