1. Games, Puzzles & Coloring Books
All very good. My kids are on a game kick right now, so indoor days are a perfect time to really get some game action in.
2. Tape Activities for Snow Days
Getting the kids moving…. and being stuck inside… usually makes it difficult, but I have found tape to be a lifesaver.
I love tape activities, especially on snow days.
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 Cushion Activities for Snow Days
Let them find a challenge for the day!
4. Scavenger Hunts
Find anything and everything with scavenger hunt activities on snow days.
A simple ‘can you find…?’ as you think them up.
5. Snow Day Indoor Sandbox Activity Ideas
Bring the sandbox inside for a wonderful snow day activity!
Let them drive their cars and trucks in it in a small tub or tray.
Or add measuring tools and cups to measure and pour or mix things up.
6. A Box
I couldn’t leave out a box.
If you’re lucky to have a huge one, go dumpster diving for treasures!
On your next snow day grab a hammer and golf tees for another great activity. Draw a pattern on the box to hammer into, letter or number matching, or just let them go crazy.
Or see what they can make from any kind of box you may have (even a cereal box can lead to something)!
7. Crafty Activities for Your Next Snow Day
Crafts are a great way to spend a day indoors.
Threading anything is a great calming ‘busy’ activity.
8. Let them get creative!
Lay out a big sheet of paper and see what they come up with!
Bonus for putting it in an odd spot – they’ll think its fun!
