Due to the snowy weather, our studio will be closed again tomorrow (Wednesday, February 5th). We hope that you are staying safe and warm inside during this snowstorm. Are you beginning to experience cabin fever? We searched the internet and compiled a list of some great suggestions to beat that cooped up feeling and have some fun.
101 Things to Do on a Snow Day: The Happy Housewife website has compiled an amazing list of books to read (check online sources for books so you don’t have go go out: iBooks, Storia by Scholastic, Amazon.com), printables, and crafts. We especially love the suggestions for making your own mini golf course, the recipe for snow ice cream, and movies to watch with your family.
Grand Rapids Kids: Who better than the good people of Grand Rapids Kids (Our northern neighbors know snow!) to fill your snow day with fun? Remember building a fort with pillows, couch cushions, and blankets? The way that pancakes taste extra delicious for dinner (brinner?) on a snow day? We also love their suggestion for painter’s tape lazer mazes.
Shadow Puppets: Turn off the lights and use this handy website to teach your kiddos how to create 15 different animals.
Printables: We can’t wait to print and use the snow day mad libs from Penny Pinchin’ Mom. With writing prompts and coloring pages, there’s something for children of all ages. Best of all, they are all FREE.
10 Snow Day Recipes: The beauty of baking/cooking on a snow day is that it keeps the kids busy as they help prepare the food, the oven warms your kitchen, and you get to enjoy delicious snow day food. We like the suggestions from Huffington Post contributor Jennifer Segal.
Winter Olympics: The opening ceremonies may be a few days away, but snow days are the perfect time to get everyone moving with some Olympic inspired activities. DLTK Kids has a wide variety of crafts and coloring pages, Makes and Takes provides activity and snack suggestions to get you in the Olympic spirit.
