When it is colder in St. Louis than in Barrow Alaska going outside can be dangerous. Keep safe and busy during this winter storm.

Keep kids entertained with great action movies. These movies are available from Netflix

Clean off the dining table and set up a board game marathon. Monopoly, Life, Chutes and Ladders-let each kid pick a game and everybody plays.

If the kids are stir crazy, dress them warmly, covering all the skin. In this cold, it only takes 30 minutes for frostbite to occur. Set a timer and have a snow angel or snowman building event.

Have the kids make snowballs and store them in freezer bags for warmer weather. The anticipation of a snowball fight in July is motivation enough.
