Snow Day

I know most places across the country are saying bye to the snow but here we’re still expecting at least one more snowfall this week. With the amount of snow we’ve had this year we gotten a few chances to really play in it. One of our biggest single accumulations was 14 inches. This particular day wasn’t as much but still plenty to get into trouble.

The snow was just deep enough for Shae that it was hard work getting through it just to play.Snow Day 2014 #snowday

Sabreena even joined this fun since it was a cancelled school day. She and Shae worked hard building a snowman.

Snow Day Unplugged Boredom Buster Indoor Activities

Mother Nature isn’t pulling any punches this year. Snow, rain, sleet, hail and earthquakes are happening all over the country these days, at levels that we’ve never seen before. Schools and activities are being cancelled. Parents are home from work. Conditions are so hazardous that there are no kids playing outside.

What’s a family to do? Get creative that’s what. These indoor activities will keep kids of all ages occupied, entertained and cabin fever free while staying unplugged.
