With winter’s arctic blasts tucking much of America in blankets of snow
and too-cold-to-function temperatures, it’s time for a li’l fun time with your
friends—minus the deep freeze. Take a peek at our party plan for the ultimate
Spread the word
When you’ve got the OK from your parents—and word from your school
district that school is canceled tomorrow—text your babes or message them
privately using your favorite social media platform. Tell them to bring
supplies, like their coziest jammies, a favorite mug and snow gear for a li’l
Raid the linen closet for a pile of blankets and spare pillows, then
make a massively snuggly nest on the living room floor. Make sure you have a
pile of wood ready to go, if you’re allowed to use a wood-burning fireplace, or
permission to switch on a gas or electric fireplace. And pop outside quickly to
shovel your walkway and front stoop, if necessary, and lay down a good layer of
salt. Ya don’t want any injuries before the fun begins, after all.
Set up the goods for a hot cocoa bar. Lay out mismatched mugs, pick
your favorite mix and the liquid of choice that works for all your babes (take lactose intolerance and other allergies into
account). Then snag some tasty mix-ins. We’re thinking flavored marshmallows,
cinnamon sticks and candy canes. Yum!
You can’t have a snow day without thanking the weather gods, right?
Prep an appropriate playlist packed with wintry tunes. We’re digging “Sweater
Weather” for a right-now track and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” for an old-school
Not enjoy the cold stuff? You must be joking! Reserve some time to
bundle up and take the great outdoors. It’ll be a blast with all your babes
taking part, and you’ll warm up in no-time with sledding and snowball fights.
Just take note of the temps—if it’s dangerously cold, you really might be
better off staying inside.
Fill the rest of your day and night with an assortment of snow-themed
fun. Think: snowflake manis, a game of sardines (done snow-day style, we’d like
to call it “avalanche”), brr-illiant braid experimentation, theme-tastic movies
