What To Do On A Snow Day When You are Bored!

20160113_200209Have you ever had a snow day and had no idea what to do? There is no school and you are snowed in. Well you’re in luck. Here are ten ideas for activities to do when you are bored on a snow day.      

The first thing you can do is to read a book. Girls can read The Fault in Our Stars, Beautiful Creatures, or Unspoken. Guys can read 172 Hours or The Hunger Games. All of these books are very popular and could probably be found anywhere. The next thing you can do is to clean your room. If you have a messy room then you won’t be able to find anything that you need. If you are tired of being inside cleaning your room, you can go outside. Have a snowball or build a snowman and give it a cool name. Just have fun with it.

After you have frozen outside, you can go inside and make hot chocolate. Here is a recipe from Allrecipes.com. What you need 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 pinch salt, 1/3 cup boiling water, 3 1/2 cups milk, 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup half-and-half cream. Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add cream and enjoy. Or you can buy some pre- made coca from the store. Either way. If you still want to be in the kitchen, you can bake! Here’s how to make a brownie in a mug. Recipe found on SimplyRecipes.com  

1/4 cup flour (50 g), 1/4 cup sugar (70 g), 2 Tbsp (13 g) cocoa (natural, unsweetened), Pinch of salt, Tiny pinch of cinnamon, 1/4 cup water (60 ml), 2 Tbsp canola oil or vegetable oil (NOT extra virgin olive oil, it’s too strongly flavored), 1 to 2 drops vanilla extract, 1 small scoop of ice cream or 1 or 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream to serve. To get started you need to put the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a microwave safe mug. Stir well to break up any clumps. Then add the oil, water, and vanilla and stir until smooth. Then put it in the microwave on high for one minute and forty seconds for a 1000 watt microwave. If you don’t have a 1000 watt microwave, you will have to experiment with how long you put it in. Tip: start with one minute and add on thirty seconds until cooked. Let it cool and put the cream on top.

If you are bored of cooking or bored in general, you can invite your friends over. You can have a dance party/ competition. Just pick your favorite songs and dance away. Have each person make up a dance move and put them together to make a dance that no one else has done. You can also build a pillow fort. Put tons of pillows and blankets and snack and hang out together. After all that dancing and building, you can sit down and have a movie night. Some of the most popular movies of 2015 are Jurassic World, Inside Out, Hotel Transylvania 2, and Pitch Perfect 2. Pop some popcorn and watch your favorite movie. That is how to have fun on a snow day when you are bored.
