Snow Day Activity Jar
By Laura Bray
When I was a little girl, growing up in Ohio, I loved snow days! My sisters, brother, and I would eagerly listen to the radio as we ate our breakfast, hoping to hear our school’s closure. Now, as a mother, I am guessing my mother didn’t quite feel the same way about snow days. Four kids, housebound? Not so much fun from that side of the story! This Snow Day Activity Jar might help ease the pain for all those moms out there. It’s easy to make, and I’ve included a printable of suggested activities, that will keep your children busy and quiet. At least for a minute or two.

I’m always looking for ways to make our family dinner time more fun and I often turn to different cultures to find inspiration. Chinese New Year is coming up on February 8 this year, so we’ll be ordering in some Chinese food and I’ll decorate our table for the occasion. I decided to dress-up some chopsticks to make the table look really fun!

What does the hostess of a New Year’s Eve party need the most? Another bottle of wine? Probably not. But I bet she could use breakfast! Who wants to drag themselves out of bed after a very late-night party and make breakfast? No one, that’s who. This hostess gift is a snap to make and your hostess won’t forget your kindness. Simply paint and embellish a plain, wood box and fill it with some orange juice, croissants, and maybe a little split of champagne (hair of the dog, as they say). Your hostess need only stumble out of bed, find your thoughtful gift, and breakfast is served.

When I go to a fancy restaurant, I love to order tea with my dessert because the waiter usually brings a lovely box, filled with teas, for me to choose from. I wanted to recreate the same feeling for some of my friends, so I will be gifting them with these lovely tea boxes. It’s a lovely way to store favorite tea bags and their guest will be very impressed when presented with their choice of teas after dinner. Although I created the box in Christmas colors, I think it could be used throughout the winter months. Of course, you can customize the theme of the box to your gift recipient’s interests as well.
