Snow Daze: Break Out of the Snow Day Funk
We’ve all experienced the feeling of epic boredom that comes with a particularly cold, snowy day in the dead of winter. It’s easy to get cabin fever when cooped up indoors, but if you have a plan, the time will fly by.
Keeping your family occupied during a snow day doesn’t have to feel like reaching for the stars. Learn more about getting the most out of your kids’ snow day below.
They’re simple, nostalgic, and they can easily get the whole family involved. Board games are a great way to get your kids away from the TV and back into their own head. Whether it’s a game of Sorry or a competitive round of Monopoly, the act of sitting down, playing the game, and spending time with the family is fun and brings the family closer together.
The possibilities are practically infinite when it comes to cards. Go Fish, Slap Jack, Rummy, Old Maid – the list goes on and on. It all depends on your child’s (and your) skill level and patience. Once you’ve gotten the rules and process off the ground, these games can last for hours. Not a cards expert? No problem! These card games for kids are great to get you started.
Learning Through Creativity
Use your kids’ creativity as a tool to help them learn. Activities like cooking, building blocks, or kid-friendly “workshop” sets can all play a role in helping kids learn about science, reading, math, and other essential components of education. Curious about how to blend learning and fun? Check out our lineup of educational products at an event in your area.
Just as your kids get creative, so must you in order to get the most out of a day indoors. Kick the cozy solitude up a notch and build a blanket or couch fort for everyone to retreat to and play. With a little preparation and luck, you’ll be set for a great day.
