Are you having another snow day where you live?  It is snow city here! Thankfully, my kids still love craft-ing AND snow, so when it arrives, it’s a great inspiration for some snow themed crafty fun!
Snow day kids crafts: easy ideas for winter fun, all with materials you likely already have on hand!

My girls and I recently made paper snowflakes, sparkly oobleck and the Marathon Mom’s sparkly snow playdough. Recipe for the playdough is linked below.  Why not check it out and embrace all things snow related while it is still the season for it?  It is often hard to wait, but soon enough winter will make way for Spring!! (Yep, spring & summer lover  right here)

Just like the Marathon Mom, I too love the words sparkly and glitter!  Being a Mom is so much fun on days like this.  It’s all about setting aside all else I know I could/should/would be doing and instead enjoying what it feels like to be a kid again!

This really is the stuff memories are made of – I don’t want my kids to remember me as the Mom who was always too busy being productive to spend face time with them.  I hope to carve out time to do with them what it is they enjoy at every age and stage.  The housework, the bills, the errands, the laundry, email & phone calls on my list?  They’ll wait!  : )
Here is a good reminder:
