Snow Day Survival Kit Ideas


I made my kit using some pretty generic items I found at the Dollar Tree and Walmart just to give you an idea of what you could do, but that any child would love. But to make one more personalized think about the kinds of things your child enjoys doing. Here are some ideas:

  • Artist Supplies
  • Craft Supplies
  • Matchbox Cars
  • Makeup and Jewelry
  • Pedicure Kit
  • Super Hero Items
  • Card Games

The idea of the kit is to take one thing out at a time and spreading out the remaining items over time, possibly over several hours or days.

Here is the Snow Day Survival Kit Label to cut out and attach to the lid or bottle.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.


  1. Now this is the kind of idea that would be a hit with kids but also appreciated by the parents when snow days arrive!
