The first day of being snowed can be a blast. School and work are canceled and you get to stay in pajamas as long as you want. But after a little while cabin fever sets in, and the kids have too much pent-up energy. Here are some ideas to keep your family active and entertained if you should find you and your family snowed in this winter.
1. Play a party game
2. Break out the board games
Though most board games were made for either adults or kids, there are some that the whole family will enjoy. Games like Apples to Apples and Pictionary have no minimum age or age limit when you bend the rules for the little ones. Similarly, card games such as spoons are always a family crowd-pleaser.
