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

Bring back the party game! Those technology-free games require nothing more than a fun group of people. Some old standbys are charades, telephone, or Never Have I Ever.

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.

3. Watch a binge-worthy series

There’s always something family-friendly to watch on Pure Flix. Binge watch with their thousands of inspirational movies, TV Series, documentaries, and originals. Find some great picks in this movie guide or this list of online series. Watch for free with a free trial at Pure Flix.
