Forsyth County just announced that schools are closed due to inclement weather tomorrow. So…now what? Home with the kids for an inclement weather day in Forsyth County. Let the fun begin! I thought it would be great to put together a list of some fun things to do with the kids while you are home.
These are in no particular order:
- Build a Fort: You can use chairs, the couch, blankets, sheets, and more! See how big you can make it. My kids absolutely love this!
- Have a Movie Day: I like this because we can all sit and relax together.
- Play out in the snow: Sledding, building a snowman, snowball fight, snow angels, and more!
- Stay in your PJs all day: This is my personal favorite!
- Have a picnic for lunch or dinner: You can make all kinds of finger foods and eat on the floor.
- Print a free activity for the kids: Here is a great website resource I found – click here
- Have a baking party: Who doesn’t love to make cookies!?
- Make Snow Paint: I love this idea because you can use the paint outside in the snow. You can find the recipe by clicking here.
- Have a coloring contest: You can either use coloring books or blank paper. Let the imaginations go!
- Make play dough: This recipe can be made to look like snow. Click here to see the recipe.
- Make Snow Ice Cream: Here is my favorite recipe, click here. If you don’t have those ingredients then try this recipe by clicking here.
