For so many parts of the country, today was an official "Snow Day," with kids home from school and parents scrambling to keep them occupied. So, how'd you survive? TODAY.com readers took to Facebook to share their advice for snow day fun, both inside and out in the elements. Here, 10 great examples. (Take note, in case you are snowed in tomorrow, too!) 

1. Tasting party. (But make sure it's not yellow!)
