Here’s your ultimate guide to snow-tastic fun for families of all ages, guaranteed to make this snow day one for the memory books.

Embrace the Great Outdoors (Bundle Up!)

  • Snowball Showdown: Channel your inner warrior and unleash a friendly snowball fight in your backyard or neighborhood park. Build forts, craft snowmen (maybe even a Olaf!), and engage in epic snowball battles – just remember, no aiming for the face!

  • Winter Wonderland Walk: Lace up your boots and embark on a magical winter wonderland walk. Explore the snow-covered trails of Fontenelle Forest or Neale Woods, keeping your eyes peeled for animal tracks and frosty landscapes. Breathe in the crisp air, listen to the crunch of snow underfoot, and soak in the serene beauty of winter.

Cozy Indoor Adventures for When the Chill Sets In
