Live the Good Life for Less & Never Miss a Deal

Snow Day Fun!

What fun we can have on a snow day in Wichita!Yes, it’s a snow day in Wichita. The first order of business is to make a snow fort or have a snowball fight or sled down the stairs on the back deck, but once our hands are frozen, what’s there to do?

Here are some ideas. Please add some of your own if you have any!

(And if you scroll down, we share a couple of good sledding hills in Wichita. If you know of any we missed, tell us about them in the comments.)

Make SNOW ice cream! Jennifer shared this on our Facebook page:

“How about a snow ice cream recipe? Just mix 8 cups clean fresh snow with 1 cup milk, half cup sugar, and half tablespoon vanilla. Yum! You can also add chocolate syrup. Thanks, Jennifer!

You can also substitute 1 can sweetened condensed milk for the milk and sugar. Other readers suggested using KoolAid or Jello to make a homemade snow cone.

Try some crafty things!

Play some games, or invent your own!

  • We love some of the ideas in this article, which has lots of links to how-to resources:  Activities for a rainy or snow day 
  • Have your own story time with the online resources at the bottom of our summer reading post. (The websites listed in the bottom section are good all year!)

Screen time is almost inevitable. 🙂

Sledding Hills in Wichita

Before you sled on any hill make sure that it is public property and that you are allowed to sled on it.

  • Sedgwick County Park has the perfect sledding hill, you can’t miss it!
  • We’ve heard that there is a good sledding hill in College Hill Park!

If the roads are okay for driving, you could also find something to do on our huge list of places for indoor fun in Wichita.
