No. 4 sounds awesome.

Call it a winter wonderland or a bizarre blizzard, either way it's still a snow day; and if you're a parent, you're probably looking for fun activities to do with your kids while stuck indoors. Sure, the option of going outside and building a snowman is a classic boredom-fix, but it's only a matter of time before the little ones grow tired of the cold and seek more excitement. Keeping your child busy with fun snow day activities can be a bit challenging, especially if you don't have a board game or puzzle handy. The best way to keep your kids entertained is through creative DIY projects and fun kid-friendly recipes

Good snow day boredom busters don't have to be complicated, they just have to be enjoyable.
