Snow Day

1. Turn down the temperature 5 degrees, crowd onto the couch under some blankets, and watch a family movie together. Snuggle time!

2. Break out an old board game. Candyland or Chutes and Ladders can even be fun for teens when you play it as a timed race.

3. Get out an old photo album and share stories of people and places from when you were your child's age.

4. Go online and make a family account at Ancestry, and begin researching your family tree together. How far back can you get?

5. Particulary dreary outside? Close the drapes and turn out the lights and light candles. Tell ghost stories, or pick a book and read it aloud to your kids.

6. Start a scrapbook! There is probably a stack of photos sitting around from a recent family vacation or summer getaway. Put the photos in order and write little notes to go with them.

7. Mostly girls? Pretend it is a day at the spa! Give each other facials, massages, makeovers or just paint your nails together.

8. Mostly boys? Try to take an interest in a video game, trading card game, or other favorite pastime of your little man/men, and see if you can compete.

9. Got cleaning to do? Talk about which clothes and toys are outgrown and can be donated to a thrift store or nearby shelter.

10. Don't forget pets! There is probably a cage that needs cleaning, a pet that can learn a trick for a special treat, or just time to cuddle when you'd normally be away from home.

And if none of these sound like fun, check out the rest of the article...
