Thank you for your very encouraging words and prayers after my December 10th post. I am overwhelmed by your love and grace. I intend to share more about that later, but after yesterday’s heavy post, I decided to lighten up the mood a bit! 🙂
It’s a Snow Day today!! The kids have been hoping for a day off of school all week…and today their wish came true!!
Rather than dealing with bored, fighting kids that whine about wanting to watch TV all day ~ I tried to be a bit more proactive. The result…Snow Day Shuffle!! And we are having a BLAST!!
First, I created a Snow Day Shuffle Board on the computer (while they were outside building a snow fort). The board looks similar to a BINGO board. I filled the squares with fun things to do, inside and out (but not involving TV). Activities like….
* Color a snow day picture
* Read a book
* Make your bed
* Drink hot chocolate
* Get some indoor exercise
* Play Snow Day Bingo
* Make a Snow Day craft
* Play checkers with your brother/sister
I pulled out a Snowman rubber stamp, and printed off a Snow Day Shuffle Board for each kid. When the kids came inside, I told them all about the Snow Day Shuffle idea. And, of course, the best part (to them!) ~ if they fill their board, they win a prize!!
Then I went to town printing off downloadables off of the computer.
I made a Snow Day Bingo (click here
Snow Day color sheets (click here
Snow Day Crossword puzzles (click here
) and more!
The kids are busy coloring igloos and penguins right now. Our Snow Day Shuffle is working!! Yippee!
What about for you…do you have any tips for Snow Day success?? Share your tips with me please!!!
Gotta run…it’s almost time for our Snow Day BINGO to start!! I better get out the red and green M & M’s (our markers for the BINGO board).
Have an AMAZING weekend filled with much joy and peace!!
P.S. My two little girls just headed upstairs to help each other make their beds. I’m not making this up!! Woo Hoo!! Can every day be a Snow Day?? 🙂
