Stuck in the storm? There is no reason not to have A LOT of fun and make memories that your kids will have for a lifetime! Take some fun pictures too : )
Right now I am sitting at my computer waiting for the BIG WINTER STORM to hit Long Island. We can see anywhere from 2 to 3 feet of snow with terrible Blizzard conditions. I know being a parent you look for things to do with the kids during the storm especially if we lose electricity.
*Besides breaking out the Board Games ( which I personally love) … Monopoly is the perfect game for a snowstorm it is the only time you do have enough time to maybe finish a whole game : )
*You can also play charades, play Pictionary and break out a deck of cards. With the cards see if you can build a huge house of cards.
* Grab your radio one that takes batteries of course and besides listening to the up to date news, have a dance party in your living room.
