What To Do With All These Snow Days

 

 

It’s been a cold winter for most of us; a VERY cold and SNOWY winter!  And according to Punxsutawney Phil we will have six more weeks of winter.  Most likely that means more school cancellations.

 

If your child’s school cancels or calls a late start and you need to get to work call TLC for Kids.  Our back-up childcare service can help!

 

Are your kids (and you!) going stir crazy with all these cold days?  I know we are at my house 🙂

If there is snow on the ground and it’s too cold to play outside here are some ideas for fun indoor activities:

1. Have a  game day!  Each member of the family can choose a game to play.  Remember it doesn’t have to be games where you sit down.  Play charades, make an obstacle course, or play Twister.  You can still be active when you are stuck inside.

2. Do science experiments.  At my house we brought the snow inside to see how long it takes to melt.  The kids drew pictures of the snow as it was melting.  Will the snow melt faster in a sunny spot?  How much water comes from one full cup of snow?  Your little scientists will enjoy discovering the answers.
