NO SNOW? NO PROBLEM!

One of the things I miss most about living on the east coast are the snow days. We would get at least one blizzard each year and our backyard had the best sledding hill in the neighborhood! A few years ago, we took the kids to New Mexico for a weekend vacation just so that the kids could experience a real snow day. There’s something magical about waking up to freshly fallen snow.

We don’t usually get much snow here in Texas (with the exception of Snowvid 2021!), so we like to create our own snow day experience with these fun ideas:

  • Have each kiddo grab a blanket and make a picnic of books about snow in the living room! Tell the kids that they have to stay on their blanket and read their own books while you get some reading done too. Add a fire and some classical music for an even cozier experience.
  • Eat ice cream or make snow cones while you watch a snowy movie.
  • Make snowman soup by adding three big marshmallows to your hot chocolate.

  1. Hi Amy,
    These are terrific selections for winter books for kids! I also have a section in my blog dedicated to kids Pre-K – 5th grade. I found you in the Create with Joy Linky party. I will share this.
    Best,
