There are traditions that happen during a snow day. For any family that gets to experience a snow day, or 10, each year, you know the things that you love to do. When snowed in, our family has only two things in mind: playing and eating. Both of those activities tend to be the most fun we can have during a very cold, snowy day, and they can also turn out to be the messiest. Messy is good.
On a typical snow day, mom and dad wake up to take a peek of the beautiful snowfall before the kids get at it. It’s so bright and pure, and with a cup of coffee in hand, it seems like the perfect way to start a day.
But, once the kids wake up, it’s time to play! They throw on their coats and boots, hats and gloves, and rush into the backyard.
I’m always amazed at the imaginations my kids put into overdrive when there’s a snow day. They create castles, and forts and guard their fortress from monsters of all shapes and sizes. The funny thing is, they end up looking like snow monsters once they come back inside of the house.
After forcing them to peel off all of their wet outerwear, I take on the title of “Mom of the Year” and serve hot cocoa with brownie bites. The kids make an awful mess with it all; splashing their cocoa all over the place because their hands are so cold, and eating their brownies with abandon. It always makes me chuckle when I see how messy they are after some time in the snow.
Once snack time is over, I send the kids to have more messy fun, while I clean up. Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach helps me take care of the mess fast. It not only cleans up splashes of liquid chocolate all over the table, it also kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses found in the home. Double bonus!
The best part of our snow days are the end of the day. The kids are exhausted, but happy. We all enjoy the warmth of our home, while loving the sight of the snow outside. I’ve also noticed that my kiddos feel even closer after a snow day. They’ve made memories, and enjoyed as much mess a possible. And on days like this, mess is good.
