So Many Snow Days!
avatar

I think we all can agree the weather this Winter has been crazy. And just when I think it is about to change and the kids and I spend a lovely afternoon outdoors in 60 plus degree weather, BAM! We get hit with more snow.

The extra cold days, a few bouts of sickness, and a growing baby belly that makes it harder and harder to get around have forced me to discover additional indoor activities for the kids. Pinterest saves the day again!

A few days ago we made what other pinners call Foam Dough. With only two ingredients, shaving cream and cornstarch, how can you go wrong? The concoction never quite reached the consistency I was imagining, but the kids were entertained for almost an hour. I’d call that a success!

What are some fun indoor activities you like to do on snowy or rainy days when you are stuck inside?

    It is hard to remember when a snow day wasn’t a happy occasion for my kids since now that it means a day off of school. My kids loved designing/painting t-shirts to wear. It can be quite simple with the “puffy” fabric paint. We cut shapes (stars for a patriotic shirt) out of corrugated cardboard and then peeled one side of the paper off revealing stripes. Dip star into paint (then I had spread on a paper plate) and then press onto shirt. We used a white t-shirt and printed it with red and blue stars. The kids looked so cute wearing matching shirts!

    I have also made treasure bottles for the kids. Take the label off of an empty, clear water bottle. Put small items in (you know the kind, little things that the kids want to play with but are too small to trust that they won’t put in their mouths) the bottle. Use a whole bunch of things, all shapes and sizes. Once you have your treasures inside, pour some uncooked rice in, filling the bottle about 2/3 full. Seal top on with duct tape. Let the kids search for buried treasure by turning and manipulating the bottles. Little items reveal themselves.

    It has been many years since we have had snow like this but I was younger then and remember mom saying that I was blue when I came in from playing. Now I’m 68 and play with my indoor vegetable plants to keep me sane till springs really comes. I have a pineapple plant from a pineapple bought at the grocery store. My great great niese wanted to try a real pineapple. She didn’t like the real ones but we planted it and it’s a conversation piece.. Have a good day and happy farming. I am wearing my LUNATIC FARMER shirt.

    Hmm…read a good book, watch a good movie, do some scrap booking, cook a big pot of vegetable soup and some hot chocolate. These are some things that sound good to me on a very cold day. Play a game!

    Building a fort is always a lot of fun!

    This year has had the most snow days I can remember in my 38 years of living in Virginia. My 13 year old loves to read by the fire on snow days and our 2 year old son loves to take advantage of daddy being home to wrestle with:)
