making everyone happy during snow days?

I have 4 wonderful children- 1,7,9,+11. We have been stuck at home 4 3days. We have played every game we have. Now the kids r starting to fight. Only 1 will do crafts and it is to cold to go outside 4 a long time. Anyone got any thoughts? I'm running out of ideas. We have even done some extra homework. Lol

  • Sorry I'm no help. When we were stuck home for 3 days with our last storm. The last day was getting to me. My girls were getting on each others nerves and all they wanted to do was leave the house. We did go out and play in the snow as much as possible. I would say as soon as you can leave the house. Do so and just find something out and about to do. I hope someone can give you some good ideas.

  • Can you maybe go to the mall to walk around. At least then the kids can run off some energy walking through the mall. I know being cooped up is no fun. Maybe do a movie afternoon.

    I hope the kids go back to school soon for you.
