Are you sick of having bored kids by being stuck in the house all winter? Here are 22 indoor snow day activities - the perfect kids crafts to keep any kid occupied all day!

I live in New York State, which means we get a LOT of snow! Today my kids are actually home from school due to a snow day, so in order to keep them occupied I started looking around Pinterest to find some indoor snow day activities.

I decided to put together a list of some of the best ones I found, so that you can easily entertain those kiddos of yours too!

Here are 22 of my favorite indoor snow day activities:
