Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

It's every youngster's dream: A SNOW DAY! Here are some ideas for keeping your children busy on these days off from school or anytime during the chilly winter months.

Edible snowflakes
Instead of using paper for these intricate creations, try using a flour tortilla. After you cut out the design, brush it with melted butter, sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar and bake at 350 degrees until crispy.

PJ and popcorn movie day
Let the kids stay in their pajamas all day and snack on popcorn while watching their favorite movies. Some good snow day movies are Jack Frost, Snow Dogs and Snow Day.

Snow painting 
Fill some spray bottles with water and a few drops of food coloring then let your children create a master piece right on your front lawn.

Freeze Dance 
It may be freezing outside, but you can stay warm indoors by putting on some music and dancing the day away! Have the children freeze in place when the music stops. If they move while frozen, they are out. The winner is the last dancer standing.

Sweet treats
Baking snowman cookies will keep children busy because they can help you make them and then decorate them. Vanilla frosting is perfect for the snowman and chocolate chips make great eyes, buttons and smile. Don't forget something orange for the nose!
