When winter arrives, so do the chances for snow days. If school gets called off and you end up at home with your kids on these chilly days, here are a few ideas to help pass the time that won’t break the bank.

With fresh powder on the ground, why not make the best of it by going out and having some fun? You could build a snowman, have a playful snowball fight or just go for a peaceful stroll through a nearby park. If you’re looking for more of a thrill, try breaking out a few sleds. Take them for some downhill runs or even race around the backyard to see who’s fastest. And after you’re done playing in the snow, don’t forget to warm up with a fresh cup of hot cocoa.
