Winter is hitting with a fury in some places, and there are bound to be some snow days around the corner for many kids and parents.
After an energetic flurry of snowman and fort building, a marathon round of cartoons and video games and a final round of all the board and card games everyone can wrangle up, there’s bound to be that familiar strain of ‘I’m bored – what can we do now?’
If you haven’t planned ahead, you could be in for some serious whining and sighing (from both you and the little darlings.) Get ready for the deadly snow days of winter with activities the kids will enjoy and keep them occupied for more than a few minutes.
