Bad Weather & Sick Day Activities



We live in Maryland so most of the year our weather is out of whack! I needed
to find a way to be prepared for bad weather days and sick days. So, using the free
website resources I had, I printed out coloring pages, puzzles, games and more. I
went to my local dollar store and purchased a small, under the bed tote, crayons, a
few board books, puzzles, etc. I filled the tote to capacity and hid it until our first
snow day. Then I pulled it out and let my boys decorate it with stickers and
permanent markers. Now, when they are sick, have a day off from school, or when
the rain won’t stop they ask to pull out the “Fun Box”. My boys are 4 and 10 and they
are BOTH occupied for several hours.
