Snow Day Fun...Ways To Avoid Boredom

Snow days are a lot of fun for children however kids tend to get bored quickly after a few days of being trapped inside. Here are a few tips to avoid boredom on snow days!

  • Make snow cream
  • Build a snowman
  • Avoid watching too much tv, instead encourage your kids to get creative
  • Get creative and make a snow day book
  • Using cotton balls let your children create their own snow scene on construction paper or a paper plate

Most people stock up on the essentials, milk, bread, etc. but I always purchase a few new fun craft activities for the kids. Snow days where I live can last for a few days. 

Supplies to stock up on BEFORE the snow storm hits:

  • Glitter
  • Construction paper
  • Color Wonder book for my 4 year old
  • Fun sparkly jewels 
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Stickers
  • Paint
  • Paper Plates


  1. This is so fun! Thank you for the ideas, I am sure they will come in handy!

  2. Always wanted to try snow cream - not many opportunities here in Florida! Great tips!

  3. Too bad we don't get snow here where I am in Texas. I think this would be so fun to do with the kids! I didn't really know you could eat it. So cool, the kids would love it!
