Snow Day – Movie time

A movie has to be part of any well-planned snow day. In my experience, if kids know that TV-time is a planned part of the day, they won’t bug you incessantly about turning it on. They know that its coming, and its just not time yet.

So, after our colored sand project, we sat down to watch a new DVD, Tom and Jerry’s Greatest Chases.

A new video can be a crap-shoot. If they don’t like it, then they will wander away and nag for their old favorites. But if they do like the new movie, then its the coolest thing ever! Tom and Jerry did not go over well, but I sensed that early on. So, I made the executive decision to switch to an old favorite before anyone got disgruntled.

They ended up watching “Goof” while I talked to Aunt Kel on the phone for an hour. We all had fun.
