Things To Do When Snowed In With Kids

We have not been able to leave our home for 3 days. We just got word that school is going to be closed another day, so we have been trying our hardest to stay entertained. Since we have been busy, we thought we would share the fun things we have been doing with all of you (in case you ever get snowed in).

1.) Make Snow Ice Cream! You can read our snow ice cream recipe—however if you want chocolate, follow that recipe and add some hot cocoa mix—delicious!

2.) Play board games! We have a closet full of board games (things like Hi-Ho Cherry-O, Monopoly, Twister, Candy Land and more!) We keep the games up so the kids don’t lose the pieces and get them out for family time. It’s great, and everyone has a lot of fun!

3.) Find an object (like a canned good or something) and play Hide-n-Go seek with it. You start by hiding the object and whoever finds it gets to hide it next. Our boys will spend a good hour playing this game!

4.) Make an indoor fort with chairs and blankets. This is fun, especially for the younger kids! You can even play with Legos and so forth inside the fort.

5.) Build puzzles and play with Legos!

6.) Make Playdough and have fun playing with it! You can use our Playdough recipe if you like. 🙂

7.) Movies! We like to make popcorn, throw big sleeping bags and pillows on the floor and cuddle up together with a good movie.

8.) Arts & Crafts are always fun. We do a lot of coloring, and sometimes we like to make cards and pictures for family and friends.

9.) Dance! One of my favorite things to do is dance! I might look silly, but that’s OK! We like to crank up the music and just have fun!

10.) Bake—Cookies, cakes…it doesn’t matter! As long as you are enjoying one another’s company and the house is filling with the blissful smell of baked goods, you’re bound to have fun!

We hope that if you are ever snowed in or stuck in the house you have as much fun as we do!
