Cabin Fever

The first few days of school being called off because of snow can be a wonderful time for moms and kids alike. From building snowmen and staging snowball fights to relaxing on the couch with a steaming mug of hot cocoa and a good movie. As those days start to stack up however, the phrase “Mom! I’m bored!” can start to ring through the halls. Try to do something together as a family like:

·         Involving the kids in a fun new hobby like painting or baking.

·         Pique their interest with music by having each child pick an instrument to learn. Listening to music and singing together is always a day-brightener, and little ones love to play with improvised instruments such as homemade rain sticks assembled with canisters and beans or upside down cans and containers for different drum beats.   

·         Performing science experiments together using snow. For instance, you can help your child explore the world of physics by making a snowball launcher out of a plastic cup and a deflated balloon. Or you can mimic the outdoors with your own snow storm in a jar using Alka Seltzer tablets, white paint, and vegetable oil- and don’t worry moms, no shoveling is required for this storm.
