This is the time of year when an unexpected snow day can quickly interrupt the regularly-scheduled programming of your week and leave you with the sudden opportunity to have some fun. Whether you’re a child relishing a surprise day home from school or an adult thrilled to delay that important presentation at work just one more day, a city-wide snow delay can present a buffet of unanticipated distractions. Do you: (A) spend all day marathon binge-watching past seasons of BBC’s “Sherlock,” (B) read the latest rousing installment of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy, or (C) attempt to inject some craftiness into your otherwise impromptu free day? Why not give these easy printable options a try!
