5 Ways to Have Fun With the Kids On a Snow Day

If your kids are home from school today thanks to the massive snowstorm that hit the Northeast, you're in luck. We rounded up some great ways to keep them occupied (and keep you sane) until the snow melts. image 1. Unlike other video games that will remain nameless, Nintendo Wii actually encourages kids to get up and be active. Bust yours out today for a family game tennis or bowling.

2. Get your kid's creative juices flowing with an arts & crafts session. We love this multiuse easel because it makes art a family affair. If you don't have one, though, some paper, crayons, colored pencils and markers will do the trick.

3. Make meal time interactive by letting your children help you prepare lunch. Your kids will get a kick out of these mouse measuring cups and they're perfectly sized for small hands.

4. Help your children wind down and repare for naptime with a classic kid's read, like The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

5. Keep kids warm at naptime with a cozy blanket. This cashmere one is super soft and luxurious.
