Snow Day Fun

Kids home from school on a snow day? Parents -- or camp staff -- playing hooky from work?

When life hands you snow, make snow ice cream -- or build a snow fort outdoors or a blanket fort indoors, string popcorn for hungry birds, bake cookies, have a taffy pull or plan an indoor picnic.

Here's a list of simple, fun activities from Frugal Upstate: http://www.frugalupstate.com/general-frugality/40-things-to-do-on-a-school-snow-day/

All of these ideas -- yes, even staying in your pajamas all day -- would make great camp programming ideas, too! So go ahead and and slack off on your snow day and chalk it up to "research"!
