We all look forward to a break from school and our normal routines, and there’s nothing quite like waking up to an announcement of a snow day! But sometimes boredom sets in within a few hours. Here are a few ways to make the most of your day off from school:

Read a book

You can start off your break by curling up with a nice book. Maybe try a new genre you have never read before, from horror to romance to nonfiction. Reading an interesting book is a great way to occupy your time.

Clean the house

Although this idea may seem like a not-so-fun way to spend your time, your parents will be truly grateful for the work you put in around the house during your time off and home.

Watch a movie

Grab a big blanket and some hot cocoa and sit right in front of a TV and watch a movie. Be sure to not send your whole day in front of television though. In between movies try doing one chore then rewarding yourself with a movie.

Make a  card

Nothing is better than a homemade gift! Find the time to pull out some construction paper and markers and show your appreciation for your family through a homemade card.

Visit elderly family

If the roads have cleared I’m sure Grandma and Grandpa  would love to see your face. Stop by to bring some cookies and show them how much you appreciate them.

Set goals

Set realistic goals for the upcoming year. Also try researching colleges and finding campuses that interest you.

Avoid Procrastination

Get a head on your schoolwork and projects so you’re not playing catch up all quarter. A snow day is a good chance to get organized with what needs to be done for school when so you don’t fall behind.
