While most people think that snow days are for children, they can also be fun and productive for adults as well! Between decluttering, cooking, baking, and watching classic movies, snow days can be an enjoyable time for everyone!
1. Decluttering & Cleaning
This may seem like more of a chore than a fun activity; however, snow days can be used to get some of those household chores out of the way. Even if you do something small, it's one less thing you have to take the time out of your schedule to do. After you sleep in and have your morning coffee, pick a small chore to accomplish that you have been putting off. By doing something small, like folding clothes, organizing the cupboard, or even wiping down the furniture, you won't feel overwhelmed and it can be done promptly.
2. Cooking Warm Meals
Nothing is better than a warm hearty meal on a cold day. Snow days are a perfect way to find new recipes or pull out old ones and whip them up in the kitchen. Meals such as spaghetti, meatloaf, or even a grilled cheese with tomato soup will do the trick. My top favorite snow day meal is chili. Chili is a hearty soup that you can perfect with any toppings such as cheese, bacon, or sour cream! You can make it for your snow day meal and save the rest for another day! Quick and easy and ready to serve in under 30 minutes! Can't beat that!
3. Baking Sweet Treats
Baking is another snow day activity that will keep the family busy! After the kids come inside to warm up after enjoying the snow, creating cookies, brownies, and pies will create a great bonding activity for the family! Adding M&M's, peppermints, and other candy toppings can add even more fun to the baking! These sweet treat options are easy and quick to make so that the children can have a part in the process as well.
4. Binge, Binge, BINGE!
Snow days are the perfect days to feed into your guilty pleasures! Binge-watching your favorite shows while claiming that perfect spot on your couch allows for you to click that play button with no shame (Gossip Girl, Gilmore Girls, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and any movie with Jennifer Lopez in it are some of my favorites!!) Netflix has a great selection of tv shows that has almost every episode if you need to catch up or even to TAME that inner desire to rewatch all 14 seasons of Grey's Anatomy. While indulging in your show, having your favorite snack right next to you is just the icing on the cake. Whether its chocolate, popcorn or ice cream (Häagen Dazs Strawberry for me) having a nice treat can make your entire binge session worth it!
Snow days are a fun way to get things done, create new memories or even just take some time to relax. Use this day off to enjoy yourself and the wonderful winter season!
