Nothing to do on a snowday for December 12th

Post by redwings left wing #11 on Fri Dec 12, 2008 9:32 am

Hello and as i predicted, I have a snowday again. And there isnt any snow. Its just ice. Ugh! So I found these fun things to do inside on a snowday.

Winter Scarf Jumping

Kids that are excited to be home from school for the day generally need a physical outlet for all that excitement. Pull out some long winter scarves and jump rope. As the kids jump, sing jump roping songs. Teach them the jump roping songs you sang as a child or jump to the lyrics of Frosty the Snowman.

Winter Clothes Dressing Relay

Get the kids moving on an indoor snow day with a winter clothes dressing relay. Place each child’s snow pants, jacket, scarf, hat and winter boots in a pile on one side of the room. Place the mittens or gloves on the opposite side, directly across from the pile of outdoor clothes. When the race starts, each child puts all the outdoor clothes on as fast as he can, races to the other side, puts the mittens on and races back to the start.

If your children are likely to get overly competitive with each other and argue about who won, time each child as he completes the race on his own. Challenge the children to race several times to find their best time.

Build an Indoor Blanket Fort

Ideally, a snow day is the day to make a snow fort, but when the weather doesn’t cooperate, you can substitute with an indoor blanket fort. Move the living room furniture around so that the back of the couch is facing the back of a chair. Make sure there is several feet of space between pieces of furniture. Cover with blankets. Let the kids use their imagination to add to the fort in creative ways.

Snow days that don’t have snow can be stressful for parents and boring for children. Keep the children entertained and prevent fighting and boredom by planning indoor snow day games and activities. Encourage the children to be active by scarf jumping and organizing a winter clothes dressing relay. Build an indoor fort and enjoy the day off with your children.

Quote of the day:

I don't care if you lick windows,

Take the special bus,

Or occasionally tinkle on yourself.

Hang in there Sunshine! Everything is going to be okay!
