Momwhoknows snow day or school closure fun!
Snow days or school closures can be predicted or unexpected, so why not make it fun!
Some of my, “must” tips….
The night before if the school sends a message regarding school being closed due to the weather, order take out! This makes life easier to enjoy a day with your children without cooking!
I always freeze homeade soups, meatballs chicken cutlets, Nan bread for pizza, tomato sauce in jars for quick lunches which I do monthly. Just double a recipe when you are making a family favorite meal and freeze one!
Arts & Crafts are a staple on a day off! Keeping a few kits in the house are a great idea to keep your children busy and doing something fun! Michael’s or your local craft store have a world of options.
Whether you like to bake or not cookies are always a great idea! Homeade or keeping a roll of cookie dough in the fridge or freezer makes one sweet day!
Want to see your children busy for an hour or two? Then build a fort! Use the couch, the dining room table, or a rope with sheets blankets for a simple creative hideout! Grab a few flashlights, toys, dolls, books and let the kids use their imagination screen free!
Hot chocolate or lemonade depending on your climate is always a plus on a cold or warm day. Having the staples on hand are a must!
Lasty a movie is a perfect way to decompress and enjoy the day off! Homeade popcorn a cozy blanket are all you will need for some downtime!
When in doubt for ideas… Pinterest for food, crafts, recipies and fun!
