From the article: School Snow Day Activities
Though they can be stressful for parents, school snow days are special for kids. Kids love them, even dreaming up snow day superstitions to make them come more often. Snow days are the stuff of lasting childhood memories. Intentionally or not, families often develop snow day traditions, like sledding or playing board games or making hot chocolate. What are your family's snow day traditions?

Canine Cafe

On snow days, I normally bake for my dogs. I have five, so I have to to be very good in the amount. I often take the dog bowls, fill them up wth dog food, pour warm soup on the food, mix it up, them cover the top with peanut butter spread on hard, dog bone treats!!! The dogs usually slurp them up in no time!!!!

Daddy and me

When I was about 6-12 dad would take me sledding in deep snow. In Oklahoma it snowed a lot it was around 7 inches of snow or more he would push me around in the snow. We even got to the top of a hill and rolled down it. Then after that if the street in ours or grandmas block were frozen with ice we would get on our stomachs and slide like penguins. Finally we would get to grandmas or our house make a snow house and forts and have a snow war. Mom and grandma would call us crazy and make us hot chocolate grandpa would be sitting there watching his black and white movies. I LOVED SNOW DAYS. Also it will bring your family together I regret being a teen and not doing those things with my family so drag your cranky teen and go do these things with your family may god bless you!!!!!!!!=)

Snow slide

Once when I was little we got about 5 feet of snow so my dad and my friends dad looked up a snow slide in a book. Pretty much they piled snow on each side of a path down a hill and made it all curvy and things like that. After the path was as smooth as could be we sprinkled water on it to make it icy in the morning...ahhh...the memories...

Building Snow Tunnels

My sister, my dad, and I just had a huge blizzard, and the snow was about 3 feet deep so we took all our shovels and dug tunnels through the whole entire frontyard and backyard. When we let our dogs out they were going through all the tunnels, curiously!!!!!!:)

Play board games, pop corn, bake cookies

I remember the snow days when my children were home from school. I loved those times! We made pop corn, baked cookies, played board games. Sometimes we had a 3 day blizzard; it was so much fun to have the kids and my husband home all day! One time the power was off so we had to put lots of clothes on to stay warm! It wasn't so much fun that time!
