Winter Activities To Keep Your Kids Entertained

It is Winter in KY and that means Snow Days are in our future (we hope)!  Although the groundhog did not see his shadow so there may not be too many on the horizon.  We love a good snow day because that means that we get to stay in our PJ’s and have fun indoors.  However often one snow day leads to several in a row and your kids can get “bored” if you aren’t careful.  I love to stock-up on limited edition TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk because it is perfect for snow days!  It is only available for a limited time!

Peyton is in LOVE with TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow seasonal milk, in fact he is sad because it is only here for a limited time and once again this year he asked me to stockpile it for him!  I thought that was so cute.  I purchased this milk at Walmart.  You can look at participating stores to see if they carry it but just remember it is only here for a limited time in the dairy case at grocery stores in February 2016 so don’t miss out!

We purchased our milk just in time for a fun Snow Day!  You can enjoy this milk both cold and hot which makes it so versatile.  Peyton describes the TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk as a delicious chocolate milk with a hint of marshmallow already blended with it.  He calls it “cold hot chocolate”.  In fact this year I am actually going to freeze a couple gallons so I can surprise him in July with his favorite seasonal milk.  We always celebrate Christmas in July so I thought that would be fun for him.

Snow Day Fun!

As I said, Snow Days are pajama days at our house.  We start the day off with a big hot breakfast.  Peyton’s favorites include Pancakes, Eggs, Bacon and TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk of course!  One of our favorite winter time activities is working on Jig Saw Puzzles. In fact we like to “compete” with Peyton’s paternal grandparents who live in TN on who can complete their puzzle first.  We both start a 1000 piece puzzle at the same exact time and see who can get it completed first.  Peyton loves competing with them and it is memory that they can make even while living hours away from each other.  Whoever gets done first face times the other one to show their success.  We always give the Jig Saw puzzles to each other for Christmas.  They love this winter fun activity.

A Snow Day is not complete without getting all bundled up and heading outside with our puppies.  In fact I think they get more excited about Snow Days that we do!  TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk is the perfect drink to enjoy while enjoying your favorite winter activities. Whether you serve it cold or try the Rocky Road Hot Chocolate Recipe.  It hit the spot for Peyton after playing in the snow.

According to a survey by Wakefield Research, watching movies tops the list of Americans’ favorite indoor winter activities, followed by reading books and playing games. The top outdoor wintertime activity for Americans is building a snowman, followed by starting a snowball fight and sledding. Additionally, nearly 70 percent of Americans agree that hot chocolate is the drink that reminds them most of their childhood. So if you’re looking to bring back carefree moments from winters past, try TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow hot!

One of our favorite new games is Quick Cups

Also during snow days we like to play board games, make brownies, watch a movie and read books.  I like to purchase a couple of new games to pull out on Snow Days.  Right now our favorite game is Quick Cups.  TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow will enhance your favorite winter activities from family game/movie night to sledding/ice skating or building a snowman.  It is a great way to enjoy family time together with this delicious sweet treat!
