School’s closed. Work’s canceled. You’re stuck inside all day. Sure, you could veg out and lie on the couch all day — but why not take advantage of the unexpected day off with some fun activities? Read on for our guide to making the most out of a snow day!
Channel Your Inner Child
Snow days provide the best times to play in the snow while it’s still powdery and pristine. Layer up with scarves, hats and gloves and start a snowball fight with your family, build that perfect snowman, make snow angels or go sledding. No sled? No problem. You can sail down a hill in a laundry basket as a makeshift sled!
Take On A Movie Marathon
If it’s just too frigid to step outside, bring the winter wonderland indoors with snow-inspired movies like “Frozen,” “Cool Runnings,” “Home Alone” or Planes, Trains and Automobiles.” Or you can hunker down and attempt to take in a whole series in one day, like the “Harry Potter” or “Star Wars” franchises.
Whip Up A Tasty Treat
Warm yourself with your favorite cold weather bites, like steaming mugs of homemade hot chocolate. For a dinner requiring minimal prep work, dump ingredients in the crockpot in the morning so delicious, hot chili is ready eight to ten hours later. To incorporate a new twist on an old warm-weather favorite, try s’mores brownies to wrap the meal up.
Visit Local Attractions
If the roads are clear enough, try one of these Kansas City winter activities. What better time to ski in Weston, Missouri or test out your axel jump at Crown Center’s Ice Terrace than when there is actual snow and ice?
