When the weather outside is frightful, your kids might not find it so delightful. It’s just too cold and snowy to go out and play. And the roads are simply not safe. The best course of action is to stay warm and cozy inside while it snows and blows outside. Your kids might be content with this for a while…especially if they get to take the day off from school! Eventually, however, you are bound to hear those two dreaded words: “I’m bored!”
Don’t just sit your kids in front of the TV or the computer for hours on end. There are plenty of fun snow day activities that allow your kids to stay actively involved, exercise their minds, and bond together as a family. With a little help from Current’s extensive catalog of indoor games, you can turn an ordinary snow day into one of life’s special moments.
Here are five great snow day activities!
