It’s cold outside, there’s nothing to do!
As the snow piles up outside and the temperature drops, it can be tough to stay entertained and sane while stuck inside during a snow emergency. But fear not, there are plenty of things you and your family can do to pass the time and have some fun while cooped up indoors. Here are five ideas to get you started:
1. Build a blanket fort and have a snowball fight!
It’s a classic activity that never gets old. Gather up all the blankets, pillows, and sheets you can find, and let your creativity run wild as you construct your fort. Once it’s built, grab some crumpled up paper and have a snowball fight inside the fort. It’s a great way to burn off some energy and have a good laugh.
2. Have an indoor scavenger hunt.
Make a list of items for your family to find, such as a red pen, a toy car, or a sock with a hole in it. Make it as easy or challenging as you want, depending on the age and skill level of your family members. If you want to make it extra fun, you can even hide the items for each other to find.
3. Have a baking party.
There’s nothing like the smell of freshly baked cookies to lift your spirits on a cold, snowy day. Gather up all your baking supplies and get creative in the kitchen. Some classic favorites to try include peanut butter cookies and rice krispie treats.
4. Have a movie marathon.
Choose a theme, like comedies, the Marvel universe, or Star Wars and Star Trek, and spend the day watching your favorite films. Pop some popcorn, grab some blankets, and snuggle up on the couch for a relaxing day of movie-watching.
5. Pull out the board games.
Dust off those old board games that have been collecting cobwebs in the closet and spend the day playing with your family. Or, go online and find a new game to try out. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you could even make up your own game using materials you have around the house.
If you’re really ambitious, you could always take this opportunity to clean your room. It might not be the most exciting activity, but at least you’ll be able to enjoy a clean and organized space once the snow has melted.
Overall, being stuck inside during a snow emergency doesn’t have to be a drag. With a little creativity and some quality time with your family, you can make the most of the situation and have a memorable and enjoyable experience.
