If you live in an area where it snows you should consider this (if you don’t already do it). Even you Southern people should consider, in light of recent weather. On days when school gets canceled due to inclement weather, just bust out this. A Snow Day Box!
It’s simple. It is a box full of things geared towards keeping your kids occupied on a snow day. What you put in it depends on the ages of your children. Here are some great things. A special set of cards, a board game that you normally hate to play (that would be monopoly for me), packets of hot cocoa mix, cans of silly string, all time favorite family movie (and some popcorn, of course), etc. Your possibilities are only limited by your imagination and the size of your box. :-)
Make sure to put this away only for snow days. That is what makes the box so very special and the contents even more exciting. Try it.
What is the board you loath? I shared mine above, monopoly, now share yours.
