Snow Days

We've had a couple snow days recently and I am still alive to tell about it!
It involved coffee, lounging around in my pajamas all day, and chaos-lots of chaos.  
Actually, I accomplished a lot of organizing on those days off.  

Whenever I find out I'll have a large amount of time at home with the kids, I always think of the "at-home" projects I could do with the kiddos.  
We already know they love baking!  
Tonight, they helped me make challah, over the weekend it was the doughnuts-which they've already requested I make again. 
But Moshe has really gotten into crafting, coloring and drawing.  He's pretty good if I do say so myself.  He's also pretty creative-we've had the spaceship going to the moon, an airplane, and of course poop, lots of poop drawings.  

A seasonal activity we've done a lot of is making paper snowflakes.  I even offered to help Moshe bling them out with glitter, but he decided he didn't like my gold glitter.
I'm sure he would love these snowflake ideas-I wish I had looked them up sooner, I would have avoided many meltdowns about how to make snowflakes.

  I don't know why I find this so interesting. :P how to cut paper snow flakes. 

My kids also really enjoyed using these Crayola window markers. 
They loved sitting at the front window, drawing while watching the snow fall. I love that this utilizes a unique and usually off-limits area and makes it kid friendly.  This activity bought me lots of quiet time! 

There's always something new to try. 
 Here are some kid-friendly at-home activities currently on my list

These look so fun...

This sand always intrigues me when I see it in stores, I'll admit I'm a little afraid to have sand in my house, but on a snow day-you know what they say: desperate times call for desperate measures!
Homemade kinetic sand- Squishy, mold-able, & lots of fun!  Why waste your money on the store bought stuff when you can easily make this recipe at home!

My kids could spend hours in the tub/shower-how cool is this glow in the dark bath?!?

There are plenty of DIY recipes for playdough, or wacky science experiments to do at home.  All of these are guaranteed to ease the snow day gloom!  I had better stock up on supplies as Winter Storm Marshal is heading our way!!! 

Stay warm everyone!
