What to do on a Snow Day?
February 4, 2011 2:42pm CST
Today the schools around Houston closed for an anticipated snow day, but the snow never arrived. We did not want the boys to just sit around and watch television or play video games, so we got out a new jigsaw puzzle I got for Christmas. It is fun to work on together and keeps our minds occupied. What do you do on bad weather days to keep the kids busy?

You mentioned puzzles, last year I bought one and my son and I worked on it often....I find it was a nice way to bind with a 13 year old. On snow days, (when it actually snowed), my boys likes to go outside and play in this new snow....exercise instead of watching tv, like you said.

Oh yeah, we are getting lots of snow here too, just about every day over the last week. Kids get very excited when they see the snow. They just like to go out and roll on the snow. But, it is not really adviseable for them to do that, less they would catch cold.

A jigsaw puzzle is great! When my kids were teenagers we used to play a game called "risk" on snowy days. it would take all day long sometimes depending on how many were playing! I think it's great that you didn't jsut veg out in front of the tv! Yeah for you!!
