I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
I love all these ideas! It’s a foregone conclusion that we will be home tomorrow due to snow so this is perfect timing. Thanks for putting all these ideas together in one place.
Hi Susan – Wow, not only am I impressed at how prepared you are, but also how much fun your family is going to have over the next few days while we are all snowed in. Snow activities in our home include shoveling and… shoveling! Hugs, Holly
Holly and Diana, our family, too. Just ask my 3 kiddos. 🙂
I still LOVE snow days!! Although I can imagine how stressful it must be for parents to entertain their kids. Great collection of ideas. I hope you don’t get too much snow tomorrow 🙂 I do agree with Holly on the shoveling part 🙂 that’s what my parents had me do
Now I am hungry and want to play some cards! Great ideas for kids and adults alike. Thanks so much for sharing.
