For many of you it took hours just to get home on Tuesday and you probably won’t even try to venture out today. So how will you spend your snow day (or days) marooned at your house?
I think most families won’t mind being without a car for a day or two as long as their electricity is working.
I always loved snow days growing up in Georgia. We would always go sledding on the big hill down the street. The whole neighborhood would show up to play. It was a fantastically long hill. Then we would come back home and my mom would dry us off. We would play board games and she would make us hot spice tea.
One friend shared this recipe for making snow cream or ice cream from the snow. The only trick is to make sure the snow is “fresh” and hasn’t been peed on by any animals. Here are 20 ideas for playing in the snow with your kids. They have a really cute snow globe idea.
Jumping on snow-covered trampolines seemed to be a theme yesterday. I also heard about a lot of kind acts — such as people taking in other people’s friends if they couldn’t get home.
So now that you finally made it home, how will you spend your day marooned? Will you play outside or just recover by a fire with a book? Are you expected to be anywhere? Did you have anyone show you kindness or help you yesterday? Feel free to give a thank you shout out.
