Try a tasty experiment: Add peppermint or other flavors to your cocoa!

When the weather outside is frightful, and your brain thinks of nothing delightful, turn to this page and let your brain be amazed! There’s lots to do on a cold winter day.

Learn to knit. Knit something special for a loved one.

Watch your favorite winter movie. Cuddle up with a warm cup of hot cocoa.

Read. Find a winter-related book that sounds interesting. Start a poetry journal. Start with simple topics such as snowflakes or snowmen and expand from there.

Paint your nails. Paint them a light blue or white and draw snowflakes on them.

Spruce up your room. With your parents’ permission, cut out snowflakes from white paper and hang them from your ceiling.

Experiment with hot cocoa. Add things like peppermint sticks to give it a whole new taste.

Make charm bracelets. Buy snowflake or snowman charms from your local craft store and give them as gifts.

Paint a canvas. Paint a pretty, snowy scene. Use different brush strokes to create different looks and textures.
