Simple, easy to do, and quick indoor snow day activities for kids! Plus there’s always 32 snow theme activities for kids to do too.
1. Games, puzzles, coloring books
All very good. My kids are on a game kick right now, so snow days are a perfect time to really get some game action in.
Getting the kids moving…. and being stuck inside… usually makes it difficult, but I have found tape to be a lifesaver. Yep. Tape. I love tape activities. From the sticky spider web to mazes on the floor to just a simple line of tape, all work wonders. But my favorite – a bunch of lines of tape on the floor to see how far they can jump (the day will fly by!).
3. Couch cushions
4. Scavenger hunts
5. Bring the sandbox inside
6. A Box
I couldn’t leave out a box. If you’re lucky to have a huge one, go dumpster diving for treasures! Or see what they can make from any kind of box you may have (even a cereal box can lead to something)!
7. Crafty stuff
Crafts are a great way to spend a snow day. Threading anything is a great calming ‘busy’ activity. Thread a necklace with straws, or a bird feeder with cereal, or use beads to make something special for someone.
8. Let them get creative!
