Preparing for Wild Weather and Runny Noses #SickJustGotReal

Photo Jan 13, 12 58 38 PM

As I’m writing this I have the windows opened and we just returned from an afternoon at the park as it is currently 78 degrees outside. Yet, only a few days ago it was only 9 degrees outside and the ground was covered with ice and snow. This is the weather we get in North Carolina. This is also how my kids end up with colds so frequently during the “winter”.

Thankfully my medicine cabinet is stocked and ready with all of the children’s cold medicines we might need during this crazy North Carolina winter.

    On snow days if its not too cold out we like to go sledding or build snow men. But when its too bad outside we stay in and have cocoa and watch movies.

    My favorite by myself snow day activity is reading a book and drinking coffee. With my toddler it’s about 5 minutes in the snow and the rest of the day coloring while looking outside at the snow. 😉

    Where I live they have not cancelled school for snow in about 7 years. It very rarely happens. When they have though, we like to go out sledding or just build a snowman in the back yard. Then it’s cuddles, hot chocolate, and movies.

    The kids go skiing every chance they can get in the winter. We live in northern New Hampshire and are lucky enough to live near a few ski areas. I like to snowshoe but the kids find it to boring.

  5. Janet W.

    My favorite snow day activities include going outside to sled and then coming back inside where it’s warm to play board games with my grandsons.

  6. Julie Wood

    We love to go sledding at the park that is 5 blocks from our house. We love going ice skating at the outdoor ice rink, and we like building snowmen!

  7. Cassie Eastman

    Our favorite snow day activities are playing in the snow of course! Then coming in and drinking hot chocolate and playing board games.

    Here in Georgia, well pretty much South GA we don’t ever really get snow. If a couple of flurries is predicted the schools close.. which the kids totally love! Lol. We however do love the snow, skiing, snowboarding- you name it! Oh and plenty of hot chocolate!

  9. Laurajj

    We love going out with our sleds or building a snowman if we can get out! If we have to stay in…we love playing board games or making blanket forts!

    Our favorite snow day activities are movies popcorn and depending if it is a cold or warm snow (I llive in the midwest) we go outside and play or shovel!

    I lie to watch the wildlife down over our property frolic in the snow and watch old movies, lots of snacking and some hot Black tea.

  12. Melissa Hilton

    unfortunately here in las vegas we dont get snow very often so its an adventure to get to the snow, we usually go to the mountains and go on a hill and sled down

  13. trixx

    We have a park nearby so we love sled down the hill during the winter. Building snowmen in front of the house is also lots of fun since my daughter can ‘dress’ the snowman.

  14. Jeanna

    We don’t have snow days here in Florida. But since it’s not sweltering outside we spend a lot of time going for bike rides!
