CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Winter weather is pretty common in this area, so there are bound to be at least a few snow days this year. When you get your day off, what are you going to do?
Sledding, snowball fights and sipping hot chocolate -- these are typical snow-day activities that most people enjoy. However, there are many other things to do when you get a day off from school! Below are four of my favorite things to do indoors during a snow day.
1. Have your own film festival
Everyone loves to watch movies on a snow day, so why not turn this common activity into a boisterous, entertaining event?
Start by inviting all of your friends over to your house. (If the roads are covered in slick ice, this may not be the activity for you.) Next, choose what type of movies you want to watch; my personal picks are '80s movies and "Harry Potter" movies.
Finally, create a popcorn bar. Give everyone a bowl of plain popcorn, and send them down a row of sweet, salty and sour toppings, such as M&Ms, pretzels, caramel and marshmallows.
Then, plop down on your better-than-movie-theater seats and enjoy the show!
2. Cook a gourmet meal
Anyone can be a chef if they have the time, and with an entire day all to yourself, why not use this opportunity to be one?
