Things to Do Indoors on a Snow Day with Kids | Snow Day Activities | Sponsored by MEL Science


The first snow day of a school year
is magical… but by the seventh you’re ready to have some words with that Elsa! As a Work-at-Home mom, snow days stress me out. But never fear! You can learn from MY mistakes. Here are a ton of great ideas for activities to do indoors on a snow day with kids. Obviously, the first thing to do on a
snow day is go outside and play in the snow. I like to use this as an opportunity for “subliminal behavioral modification”.. Kid: “I promise to be an angel. I promise to be an angel.” “I promise to be an angel.” Let’s face it, it’s freaking cold out there. So, if you don’t want to freeze your tush off come inside and have an indoor
snowball fight! Snow Sundaes make an excellent dessert. Of course, once they’re all sugared up, you may need a snow cocktail! After they’ve made a mess, trick them into cleaning! Kids can ice skate with rags tied onto the bottom of their shoes. Or get some of these great dust mop slippers. Relieve your tension over
all that work you’re NOT getting done with a family massage. Bring some of that pristine snow indoors and paint using food coloring. It’s oddly relaxing… Create an indoor “laser
maze” with painters tape. It’s so fun to crawl through and at the end you can demolish it! Are you hoarding packing materials? Create a Bubble Wrap Run! If they’re not going to school today they might as well do something educational. We’re big fans of the chemistry subscription from MEL Science. They have subscriptions for older kids and little kids. They send safe, awesome, fun virtual-reality powered science experiments to your house every month. And you can use our code MOMCAVE for a discount! You’re stuck inside all day. The kids need to take a bath anyway. Use bath time as a fun activity. Little kids love to play “Bathtub Carwash.” Kids love slime…Moms? Not so much! I found a way to keep it inside the bathtub with a Slime Bath. You know all the scuzzy plastic toys that your kids and their friends have been slobbering over all season? Dump them right in and trick the kids into cleaning them! Make a Spaghetti Marshmallow tower. I would monitor their marshmallow consumption during this
activity. I hope some of these tips will help you learn how to love snow days and if they don’t, don’t worry about it! The only people that truly love snow days
are teachers!
