Good morning from the Northern Virginia-DC Metro area where the wind is hanging around 30-40 MPH and gusting to 70 MPH, affectionately known as Windmageddon.
It’s not raining. It’s not that cold. School is cancelled, but there’s no snow. We can’t go outside or my tater-tot sized little ones my blow away and the taller ones will point out the parenting flaws in the Wizard-of-Oz like weather.
So we’re working on all kinds of fun things to keep everyone occupied–and I have grand plans to catch up on my audiobook wish list today– plus, just like we do in the summer, our after lunch “calm” activity will be a kid’s audiobook while I knock out some household chores that are easier without my helper bees.
If you’ve never tried audiobooks before or haven’t thought about letting your kids try them, I’ll tell you more below on how you each can try an audiobook for free. Or you can keep both for yourself. 😉
Kid’s Windmageddon Activity List
- Red Light, Green Light Ant Feet Edition meaning they take the tiniest little steps
- Work on our fairy gardens
- Ice melting contest. There’s a toy inside and they have warm squirt bottles, haha!
- And something to make up for Read Across America Day which was supposed to happen at school today. Ideas?
Favorite Children’s Audiobooks
- Judy Blume’s kids books. All of them. LOL. Everything I’ve listened to is amazing!
- Peter Rabbit
- Stuart Little. The writing is so fantastic kids can really visualize this!
Favorite Adult Fiction Audiobooks
- Romance everything. If that’s your thing, don’t forget that Audible has the Romance Listening Package! A small upgrade to your Kindle Unlimited account will get you unlimited listens.
If you’re not already an audiobook listener, you can try Audible and get two audio books for free. There’s a free thirty day trial to see if it’s your cup of tea. Or the key to your Windmageddon survival!
