Our boys had a snow day recently. One of our kids don't handle changes like that well. The new schedule throws them for a complete loop. So I decided to meet the problem head on. I took floor tape my parents had given us and made a "town" for their cars, Little People, and buildings. It was pretty successful. They played for 2 1/2 hours straight, which is pretty incredible. It didn't take away the struggle from the one child but put a cushion between them and their siblings so I could deal with it.
