Yesterday on December 15th, Foundations Christian School had its first snow day of the year. Yesterday’s snow day is most likely the first of many for this winter season, one of the perks of being located in Big Flats, NY.
Read on below for some fun activities to keep the kids busy during these blizzardy days of the year.
Bake Some Cookies
Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies wafting through their home on a snowy day? Not only will baking be a fun learning activity for your kids, but it’s also an awesome opportunity to stock your home with sweets before Christmas!
Play in the Snow
This one may seem a bit self-explanatory but we figured we would throw it out there anyway. Encourage the kids to get out there and build a snowman or maybe even a snow family! One of the best parts of winter is driving around and seeing all of the cool snow creatures kids have displayed in their yards.
Have a Christmas Movie Day
Have the kids pick out their favorite Christmas movies, go ahead and throw in your favorite as well, pop some popcorn, and curl up on the couch for a fun movie marathon! It’s a great way to get in the Christmas spirit while also spending some much-needed quality time with your kids.
Read Books Together
Sure this option may not sound very exciting to the kids, but it can be! Kids love being read to and it’s a great way to bond with them and their interests. Pay attention to the stories they choose and really get involved with the story, they will love it!
With Christmas coming up, wouldn’t you love to have your house decorated with some awesome homemade snowflakes? Paper snowflakes are super easy to make and will be a great experience for the kiddos.
Kids love seeing their artwork around the house, and as parents, we know that you do too.
Along with playing in the snow, sledding is just as much fun! Find a nearby hill and get going on the slopes! Your kids will spend hours sledding without even realizing which is a win-win for everyone.
Just make sure they are nice and bundled up and have hot chocolate ready for them when they get back!
Snow days don’t have to be boring, they can be just as fun-filled as any other day! We hope these points above help you keep the kids busy.
