It is tough to make time to read when you’re swamped with homework and managing a part-time job or internship. Pick up your favorite book and rediscover how much you love reading!


2. Go sledding.

If you can sneak out of your house and the storm isn’t too bad, go sledding! It is still just as fun as when you were a kid.

3. Play card games.

There are tons of card games to play, and you will most likely end up playing for hours! A great way to pass the time.


4. Binge watch your favorite show.

Whether it is trashy reality tv, or you’re restarting Game of Thrones from the beginning, you can’t deny this is one of the best things to do when you’re snowed in.


5. Bake.

You would be surprised what you can whip up with the things that are sitting on your shelves! And if you’re feeling extra confident, make up your own concoction!

6. Do a puzzle.

Ok, it isn’t the most exciting snowed in activity. But your parents will love it!


7. Tell ghost stories.

If you power is out, tell spooky ghost stories! Or stories from when you were in middle school, because those are spooky, too.


8. Look at old photo albums.

Grab your baby book or your parents’ wedding album and start flipping! Old photos are so much fun to look back on.

9. Play drinking games.

I mean, beer pong has always been a good idea.


10. Make snow cones.

Grab a bowl or cup, fill it up with snow, and cover it with chocolate sauce. (Hey, no one can judge you if you’re snowed in.)
