Snow Day Fun

We woke up this morning to snow and a day off from school. The question now? How do we spend the day? It doesn’t have that survival feel I was emotionally prepping for, so I guess we need to get busy. I surveyed the family, and here’s what’s on our list:

1. Do a jigsaw puzzle. You have one sitting in a closet somewhere, and it is not as boring as it sounds. It’s like meditating in a group.

We did this a few weeks ago and everyone got involved.

2. Build a snowman – of course – but, with a twist. We’re going to watch a little of Frozen to get inspired, and then compete in teams. Who can build the most creative snow creature?

3. Play Chopped – If you haven’t watched the show on Food Network, check it out On Demand. Pick three varying ingredients and see who can come up with the best appetizer, main course and dessert using all three ingredients and any other edible products they can find. Judging should be based appearance, taste and creativity.snow day

4. Karaoke – Get silly. If you don’t have the machine, or the video game, try this app. A snow day is a great time to let your kids see your crazy side — by that I mean your college crazy side and not your Jack Nicholson from the Shining crazy side.

5. Have a game marathon – Let everyone pick their favorite board game or activity and make a schedule. If your family has a competitive side, keep score and assign prizes.

7. Skip the Board Games and Play From an App. No need to stress over lost game pieces; these games can be spontaneous; played anywhere; and you’ll never lose the pieces! Here are a few of our favorites.

Get creative, put down your work and your smart phone if you can, and enjoy a day with your kids where you can all let out your inner kid.
