Five Things To Do With the Kids on a Snow Day
It's time to get out of the house with the kids; here are a few ideas
Today marks the third snow day in a row for Fairfax County students and Monday and Tuesday will be teacher workdays. If it’s time to get the kids out of the house we’ve got a few ideas for you.
1. Kids need to get some energy out? Check out Wee Play, offering child enrichment classes and drop-in open play. And if the kids are looking to run, jump and wear some of their energy off, try children’s gym JW Tumbles.
2. Play in the snow! Who doesn’t love good packing snow. Make a snow fort, build a snow family, have a snow fight or go find a good sledding hill. Don’t have a sled? Break down a cardboard box! We hear Lees Corner Elementary School has a great sledding hill.
3. Head over to Worldgate 9 Theaters and check out The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Teens can check out The Green Hornet. Showing at Rave in Reston Town Center is Gulliver’s Travels, Yogi Bear, Tron: Legacy and Tangled.
4. Go ice skating at Reston Town Center. The rink is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Kids under 12 are $7 and adults are $9. Skate rental is $4. Rock ‘n’ Skate will be held from 8 to 10 p.m. and will include a deejay playing music to skate to.
5. Clay Café Studios in neighboring Chantilly is offering an emergency Snow Day Camp from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The camp is for kids 5 and older and is $55. Kids can paint their own pottery. A packed lunch is all that’s needed.
Other ideas we’ve heard include Laser Tag in Sterling, the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum, a trip to the local library, bowling or a trip to the Greater Reston Arts Center. What are you doing with the kids on this snow day?
