Snow Day? 111 Ways to Entertain the Kids Indoors

Let it snow, let it snow . . . oh no! As much as we love walking in a Winter wonderland, it can put a damper on kids' outdoor plans. When it's too cold to go outside, you'll be hearing echoes of "Mommmm . . . I'm bored!" before you know it. If a few days of snow has made outdoor adventures in your neck of the woods null and void, you've come to the right place.

We've come up with 111 boredom-busting ways to stay entertained indoors. Challenge your little ones to do something different this afternoon, and try out a craft, recipe, or game that wouldn't have otherwise interested them. Prove to your kids that being stuck inside isn't necessarily a bad thing — it can be an opportunity to learn something new!

I’m so glad I stumbled upon this list of fun things to do around the house! Between keeping up with my job at Dish and maintaining my household, I don’t have a lot of time to come up with activities for the kids. This list does all the work for me! My children have become quite the experts in fort building these days. It’s fun to see them transform our home into a playhouse! In fact, we’ve started a new tradition called Wednesday Night Movie Night where they build a fort big enough for us all to crawl in and watch a movie. We have the Blockbuster@Home service through our Dish account that allows us access to tons of movie, so we are never without something new to watch. Wednesdays are my new favorite night of the week! This mini tradition was completely inspired by your ideas, so thank you!
