GREENSBORO, N.C. — Looking for something fun in Triad to do with the kids on a Snow Day? We’ve got a few things in mind.

From the International Civil Rights Center & Museum to Winterfest we’ve got all you need for an enjoyable day in Greensboro on a snow day.

Have an Indoor Picnic

Bake a Cake or Fun Treat

No time is a better time than whipping up some childhood memories while cooking up a sweet treat in the kitchen during some snowy weather. From angel food cake to sponge cake, red velvet, chocolate, and even pound cake. Enjoy some tasty treats with the kids while partaking in some quality time.

Get Outside

Hey! I know it’s a snow day and they're often enjoyed indoors but don’t be afraid to step on outside and enjoy some snow or what’s left of it for that matter. Take a spin outdoors when road conditions are safe and enjoy a little fresh air. Turn on those favorite tunes and sit back and relax.
