12 Activities for Little Kids on a Snow Day


Snow Day Activities for Kids

It’s a snow day today!  I think this is the first time it really feels like winter here (it’s been a super-dry and warm winter in our area so far), so it inspired me to pull together some of the activities we’ve done over the past few years and share them with you!

In addition to the regular snow-day-kind-of-ideas like making a snowman, building a fort, and drinking hot chocolate, here are 12+ of my snow day activities for little kids!
