Snowday Games and Activities

For many today looks to be the first snow day of the year as winter weather hits the Midwest and Northeast, but while the kids might say there is nothing to do we have a few activities and games to keep them off the couch.

First if the snow has stopped you may just want to send them out to shovel the sidewalk or build a snowman, but if the are staying inside here are some ideas.

Snowball Soccer - If you have paper and tape you have enough for snowball soccer. If you have 1 child have them set up a goal and see how many they can shoot in out of 20, 30, or 100 tries. If you have more than one child then you can play the game. Here are the instructions for Indoor Snowball Soccer.

If your kids enjoy crafts and you are home today too, then consider making cookies or check to see if you have the ingredients for salt dough ornaments. These are the ornaments you can make yourself with various recipes. have the kids help you make the recipe and later make your own keepsakes.

Another activity that will keep them from the tv would be board games, if neighborhood kids live within a safe walking distance make a call and invite them over for hot chocolate and anafternoon of games. Have them play Candyland, Monopoly, Risk, Sorry or a game that suits there age.

You may also want to consider printable Holiday games and activties that you can print right from your computer. These include word scrambles, secret messages, trivia, holiday bingo, holiday charades & pictionary, and about 50 more actitivies. Best of all is you can use these games today and at upcoming kids, family and office parties too.

Well I hope you are enjoying the first big snow of the winter and you and yours all are safe and warm. Have fun keeping them busy and entertained on the first snowday of the year.
