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.
