School Snow Day – they’re here and they’re about to get real! Rhode Island is known for getting some snow… lots and lots (and lots!) of snow. I have to be honest with you, it’s one of the reasons why I love living in New England. We definitely experience the 4 seasons here – when it’s hot, it’s hot and when it’s cold, it’s cold! We had a record snowfall in Rhode Island last winter and we’re expecting the same kind again this year. My kids can’t wait, they absolutely love to head outside and play in the snow. My husband builds a huge sledding track around the side of our house and every kid in our neighborhood comes over to try it out for a school snow day!
School Snow Day
Oh, yes… snow days in Rhode Island mean FUN, FUN, FUN!
But it’s not just about playing outside that makes my kids happy! It’s also about being inside, too – especially when they have cold hands and toes and little noses from sledding, snowball fights, making snowmen and snow angel making!
School Snow Day – Sickness and Colds
I’m ALL about finding fun crafts and cool projects for them to do. With 5 kids, as you can imagine, we have their masterpieces hanging throughout our house. They love to make pictures for us that reflect the seasons. I thought it would be fun to have a snowman hang on our front door (thanks to my Henry!) and some adorable snowflakes hanging in all of our windows (thank you to my William!). Since Star Wars is top of mind right now for all of my kids, I found some really fun Star Wars coloring books for the kids to enjoy! They have created some awesome coloring pages and can’t wait to hang them in their bedrooms! I just love seeing them all laughing and enjoying each other while doing something creative and fun!
While they are being little Picassos, I’m ALL about making sure I’m keeping the house clean! With the winter comes the cold and flu season and it’s something that we just inevitably get hit with every single year. It’s like a game of dominoes in our house, once one of us gets sick we all get sick! It’s what happens even on School Snow Day. There’s nothing worse than missing out on all the fun the winter months have to offer when you’re sick. Fortunately – when me and my husband do get “hit” – DayQuil SEVERE and NyQuil SEVERE can help us power through! As every mom and dad out there knows… there’s no such thing as mom and dad taking a sick day! Let’s face it we don’t have time for sick days! DayQuil SEVERE and NyQuil SEVERE get us back to feeling ourselves so we can get help with crafts indoors or head outside to build a snowman or speed down a sledding hill with our kids.
