But not as much as kids! Kids will actually try to make with any number of snow day superstitions. Our family's favorite snow day superstition is spoons under the bed. What about? Do your kids have a secret method to make snow days happen?

Hair bands and a penny
- I put light colored hair bands on both my wrists and put a penny under my pillow

- We put pajama's inside out and backwards, flush icecubes down the toilet, do the snow dance, throw icecubes at trees, yell snow day in to the freezer, and whatever else we can think of.

Snow day traditions
- I do the pjs inside out and backwards, ice cubes down the toilet, white crayon on the windowsill, and the spoon under the pillow.

- I teach first grade in Tennessee. Our long standing tradition is to wear PJs inside out and backwards and put a spoon under our pillow. We have also heard about flushing ice cubes down the toilet! This year has been our best yet!

Spoons Under the Bed
- When I'm short on spoons I go looking under the beds because my kids' snow day superstition involves borrowing my spoons. They firmly believe that sleeping with a spoon under the bed increases the chances of a snowday. But of course they never remember to put the spoons away!
