How to celebrate a SNOW DAY

Today I am having my first snow day off from school this winter.  I live in an area that receives a pretty good amount of snow each year, but this year we have been way under our usual totals .  Meanwhile in areas that are south and east of us, have gotten way more than their share.   

Based on the national weather map, there are MILLIONS of kids who are celebrating having at least one snow day this week.  Ten years ago almost to the day, I shared the Snow Day party that I threw for my kids here on the blog.  All of the ideas, and treats are still perfect for today, so I am sharing them again.  

In the picture at the top of the page, we built a snowman using styrofoam balls, pipe cleaners, google eyes, and scrap fabric. 

My daughter and I made the drinking cups but drawing snowman faces and names on them.  

I covered the table with white craft paper and gave the kids cups of crayons to draw winter themed pictures. 

We cut up printer paper into several snowflake designs that we could hang up. 

We had a create a snowman station out of marshmallows, donuts, pretzels, candy and food writers. 

Here is just one of the yummy finished treats.  

Our food was entirely snow related as well.  Most of the ingredients I already had on hand. 

We made snowman pretzel rods by dipping them in white chocolate and adding mini chocolate chips and gummy candy.  The bears are sledding on Nilla wafers in vanilla pudding bowls. 

The snowmen pizzas were made with English muffins and mozzarella cheese.  The faces are black olive slices and piece or orange pepper. 

Slice bananas, mini chocolate chips were easily put together as snowmen on a stick. 

To warm up after playing in the snow we enjoyed hot chocolate with lots of mini marshmallows. Yum! 

Over the years I have had a few other snow themed posts that were not included in the original party, but would be a good addition to your snow day celebration.  

Happy Snow Day and STAY SAFE!
