In honor of all the snow/sleet the majority of our country has had lately, I want to share our Top Three essentials for a snow day! I’m a HUGE fan of a one-time only snow day. haha! You know not a week at home where you can’t really leave? But just a one day at home-kind of snow day. Those are my favorite. It’s nice to be forced to slow down and spend time with your family.
Some of my very favorite memories as a kid were during snow days! Our family was forced to not go in so many different directions, but we had to slow down and hang out together.
#1 Warm Drink (I’m using “warm” instead of “hot” because my coffee is warm.)
For the adults, it’s coffee and the kiddos enjoy hot chocolate. There’s just something special about sipping warm drinks on a cold day.
#2 Big Breakfast (I should have taken a picture of our breakfast yesterday. Trust me place mats weren’t involved. It was WAY more chaotic than this picture but with three littles what isn’t?)
If school is cancelled and there’s no place to be, we always have a big breakfast. Yesterday Tab made whole wheat pancakes, eggs, and bacon. It was delish!!
#3 A Good Movie
Yesterday Rio was our kiddos’ pick. A good snow day always involves a movie, right?
#4 A Game
We played a lot of rounds of Uno yesterday. I hate to say that the boys came out on top and were totally braggers about it. Ebby Lee and I should have gotten awards for being the best losers! But…a snow day to me means games and lots of them!
Your turn! What are your snow day essentials?? Please share! Maybe I need a few new ones!
