Snowed In?

March 13th, 2019

School-closing snow days are here.  Are you ready to keep your kids busy while keeping your sanity intact? 

If the weather is too frightful for them to play outside, make it a fun, stress-free day inside with some boredom-busting ideas from Mommy Poppins and Accuweather.  With a little wax paper and a carpet, you can create an indoor ice-skating pond.  Camp in the living room, have an inside picnic, score a strike with indoor bowling or make snow ice cream and other tasty treats.

Of course, if you find yourself wishing for a bigger house to enjoy it all, maybe it’s time to visit the Sal Paone Builders website.  We can help you build a home fit for snow days, and every day!
