Snow, glorious snow. It has its merits: school closings, hot chocolate, and winter woolies. It has its drawbacks too: boredom, restless kids, and snowmen – lots of snowmen.

So, when you’ve been-there, done-that with the snowperson thing, check the weather forecast, check your mood, and check this list for 10 ways to while away a winter’s day.
