Staff writer Skyler Simpson explains the different ways to fill your snow filled day off!

This year, North Penn has had multiple snow days, 2 hour delays, and early dismissals. Especially during a school closing, there’s a ton of extra time to spend doing cool stuff.


  1. Catch up on homework!

It sounds boring, I know. However, a day spent indoors is the perfect time to finish an assignment or study for a test. This way, you won’t be rushing the night before to get stuff done and can take a have more leisure time.

  1. Play in the snow!

As long as there’s not a full-scale blizzard going on, grab your warmest clothes and head outside. You can build a snowman, make a snow angel, or take pictures in the snowfall. Whatever you choose to do, just make sure you stay safe and warm.

  1. Bake something!

Nothing’s better than a warm treat on a cold day. Here’s some yummy recipes guaranteed to make your mouth water.

  1. Binge-watch some TV!

Don’t feel like going outside? Netflix has you covered. You can finish a season of your favorite show, re-watch old favorites, or even start a new series you’ve been eyeing up. My personal recommendations are Glee, Dark Matter, and Reign – all on Netflix.

  1. Draw something!

Nothing is more inspiring than a winter snowfall. If you like to draw, get some blue and silver hues and look out your window. Maybe your next masterpiece awaits.
