Cures for Cabin Fever

cures for cabin fever

The weatherman is predicting a winter storm tonight. Three to eight inches of snow is expected to blanket the Triangle and leave thousands of children home from school and frantic parents trying to keep everyone happy. North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory has already signed a declaration for a state of emergency and is urging residents to “stock up and stay home”.  I sent my husband to the grocery store yesterday, and he got all the essentials- milk, water, beer, wine and enough ingredients to make chili for a week. I don’t think we’ll be stuck home for a week, but it’s good to be prepared. Now that I am all stocked up, what are we going to do? I searched the internet and found the best blog posts written by NC Bloggers that will help you cure your cabin fever.

      Electronics are fun for awhile, but I limit my boys electronic time. Especially since, it’s snow day #8.

  1. I thank God I don’t have to deal with snow and kids. However, when I was growing up in the snow, I can remember living in my snow outfits and doing a lot of sled riding. We also made an Eskimo house and that was a LOT of fun. I can remember how warm and snug it was.
    These are some really good tips and I’m confident many parents appreciate these ideas.

      I try to make snow days fun for my kids. We went sledding, built snowmen and played with friends. I hope they made wonderful memories too.

    Ooh you make your own ice cream? That’s cool 🙂 Great roundup! I’m glad I don’t live where it snows though.

      It doesn’t snow too often in North Carolina. Two weeks at the most, but I’d rather it be summer year round. Snow cream is good; it’s like when life gives you snow make snow cream.
