Family Snow Day

It’s not every day the local school district declares a snow day, so don’t miss the opportunity to make your one-day vacation with the kids a memorable one!

Here are five activities to make your children’s snow day unforgettable:78528357

#1 – Build a Fort

Looking for an activity that will entertain your kids for hours? Gather all of the blankets, sheets, pillows, chairs and paperweights and help your children become creative architects. A temporary fort in the living room filled with pillows, passageways and snacks is the perfect venue to snuggle up for a movie.

#2 – Make Edible Snowflakes

Macey’s flour tortillas can easily be converted into a delicious snow day treat! Fold your tortilla into fourths and cut out shapes just like you would for a paper snowflake. After you’ve designed your snowflake, cover the entire top-side of the tortilla with butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Slide the tortilla into the oven at 350 degrees and bake until crispy!

#3 – Build a Snowman

We know, the idea may seem unoriginal but ask yourself when was the last time you built a snowman with your kids? Head to your local Macey’s supermarket to pickup carrots and charcoal for a traditional snowman!

#4 – Play with your Kids

These days, young boys and girls have become infatuated with video games and apps on gaming consoles, cell phones and tablets. Want to improve your reputation with the kids? Join them in their games! This is a great way to have some fun with your kids and learn more about the games they’re playing.

#5 – Conduct a Science Experiment

Take advantage of this opportunity to teach your kids. Carry a pack of snow into the house to watch it melt or stick it into the freezer to preserve the snowflakes. Build an igloo to teach your children how a house of snow can insulate heat. Or, think of a fun object-lesson you conducted as a kid and share it with your children.
