Snow Day Fun!

I am enjoying another Snow Day with my kids today after Sno-Madeggon, the Mother-of-All-Snowstorms, rolled through the Midwest. The wind, the thundersnow, and the amount of flakes was incredible to experience. What’s great though is that once the storm ended yesterday, the sun came out and it was the MOST PERFECT SNOW DAY to head outside and have fun.

My kids have been having a blast making snow forts and jumping on the trampoline once we cleared off the snow.

If this is your second Snow Day or you’re worried about what to do with the kids when they are off for President’s Day, I wrote a few posts for other sites on Fun Snow Day Activities with the Kids for PTPA Media and my local Palatine Patch.com that will give you ideas.

Also, my friend Beth Engleman, Mommyonashoestring.com, shared this great video with me on her ideas for Snow Day crafts with the kids.

The Mother Huddle had a great way to keep kids amused for an hour at least with Marshmallows and Toothpicks.

Finally, I’m going to be on NBC 5 Chicago News this Saturday during the 9 a.m. newscast with family fun ideas on how to beat the winter boredom blues. I’ll post a link to the segment as soon as I can.

Have fun in the snow!
