Snow day? 3 ideas to keep kids busy

(NC) Parents know that the holidays can mean endless energy for little ones. It can be a challenge to manage a high-energy house during a snow day. So how do you keep the kids happy and busy?

Playing outside. Put all that snow to good use. Packing snow is a key ingredient for hours of outdoor fun during a snow day. Encourage your kids to make a snowman or build forts. Playing in the snow can lead to hours of distraction.

Helping in the kitchen. Every Santa needs little helpers, and holiday baking is a great opportunity to introduce kids to the joys of cooking. Walk them through favourite recipes and get them to help with fun and simple tasks, like making balls of dough for cookies.

Watch holiday classics. There is a library full of holiday films for everyone — old or new, funny or wise, and everything in between. To enhance the viewing experience for the whole family, try watching on an LG OLED TV. It has powerful sound, perfect blacks and rich colour, meaning the television delivers a cinematic picture and gorgeous sound quality every time. And the addition of the Disney+ app enables families to watch endless classics anytime in the comfort of home.
