From deep snow to brutal freezing temperatures, my girlies and I have had to stay inside. Despite our serious case of cabin fever, we have managed to do a pretty good job of getting creative each day so that we don’t lose our minds. In fact, I sort of feel like a snow day activities expert! Here are 20 ways to beat the cold and enjoy your days (or weeks) indoors…
