30 Snow Day Activities for kids!




Snowdays come, and snowdays go. 
But one thing that never changes is the endless amount of energy that kids are born with -- come snow or shine!

Here are a bunch of ideas to have fun on your next snowday,
 while also burning off some of that endless kid-energy when you're cooped up inside!

(Some of these are Holiday activities, but now you're well prepared.
Because you never know when a snow day is going to hit!)

After you burn off a little energy, have your kids sit down to read, do a puzzle, play with toys, color, watch a movie, etc.
Then when they start getting bored again, whip out another energy-busting activity!

Hope these ideas help make your next Snowday a success!
HAVE FUN!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)




And if you are wondering where to get SUPPLIES for these crafts and activities, check out this post!

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
