snow day box {a tutorial}

snow day ideas

Snow days! I don’t know about you, but for my family, the first one of the year is always cause for excitement. With the weather getting colder, I wanted a fun and creative way to make the most of our first snow day, so I put together this Snow Day Box! Don’t have kids yourself? This would make a perfect family gift for the holidays, who doesn’t love a snow day?

First up, you’ll need a clever and fun snack idea, preferably one that adults and kids would enjoy. Pop Works & Company has come up with a unique twist to a traditional party favorite-popcorn! They start with airy popcorn, add sweet glazes and sprinkles bits of sweet treats over the top, resulting in three delicious flavors (clockwise, from top) Birthday Cake, Salted Caramel & Fudge, and  Cookies & Cream.

I added a few other easy items to my box: a fun book that fits our theme (a DVD would be a good choice as well), hot cocoa (don’t forget the marshmallows), and a Dress Your Own Snowman kit for when we decide to venture into our winter wonderland!

Package it all up in a box (I found this one at Target), add a cute tag or label, and you’re done!

I can think of about five families I want to gift one of these to, and I love the fact that it’s all ready to go, no running around as the flurries start falling trying to find a way to celebrate the first snow day of the season.

Can we talk for another moment, though, about this amazing popcorn? Not only is Pop Works & Company the clear star of our Snow Day Box, but I also plan on using it for our hostess gifts this year. What better way to say “thank you for having us” than some yummy popcorn?

What a fun idea! And that Pop Works popcorn looks amazing! My daughter would LOVE the birthday cake one, but I'd go for the salted caramel and fudge!
