Things to Do on a Snow Day Inside with Kids

snow dayThe hardest part of a snow day is having projects and activities for the kids to do inside in between playing in the snow outside.

Here are some ideas of things to do on a snow day inside.

  • Hit the recycle bin – don’t throw away any cardboard during a snow day! My kids are making Valentine’s Day mailboxes with Coke 12-pack cardboard boxes. Just cover them with construction paper, decorate with stickers, crayon and glitter glue. We also have a large box that they converted into a puppet theater. Or you can convert the stairs into a slide with cardboard!
  • Make something in the kitchen – grab a favorite recipe and get the kids cooking and baking with you. It’s also a great way to learn fractions!
  • Have a fashion show – get all gussied up and have a fashion show or tea party.
  • Have a family game night. Break out the board games, a deck or cards or puzzles and have a family game night. Have each family member choose the next game/activity.
  • Build a fort. Grab some sheets and make a fort in your family room or the kids bedrooms.
  • Put on a talent show. Have a family talent show and everyone comes up with an act.
  • Read a book. Sit on the sofa and read a book out loud together.
  • Make up a game or play one of these indoor games for kids.
  • Draw cartoons or portraits.
  • Learn how to make shadow puppets. (check my Pinterest page)
  • Go on a scavenger hunt. Make a list of things to find in the house and send the kids searching.
  • Have an indoor picnic.
  • Watch old movies and musicals and have a family movie night.
  • Write letters to family and friends.
  • Make a scrapbook or photo album.
  • Roast marshmallows in the fireplace and make s’mores.
  • Have an indoor olympics or play minute to win it with household items like marshmallows and paper cups.
