It’s a snow day. The kids are outside having a snowball fight with neighborhood friends. You invite everyone in for hot chocolate. It’s not even noon…now what?
5 Device-free ways to keep the gang happy indoors:
Break out the Lego – collaborate on some new creations. https://www.mykidstime.com/things-to-do/master-builder-lego-instructions-how-to/
Make sculpture, collages or other masterpieces with things found around the house. Afterward, mount a ‘group show.’ https://artfulparent.com/kids-arts-crafts-activities-500-fun-artful-things-kids/
Board games! Where kids interact with each other, instead of a screen. https://www.fractuslearning.com/best-board-games-for-kids/
Make ‘Slime’ using pantry ingredients (never gets old.) Remind everyone – firmly and frequently - that upholstery is off-limits! https://littlebinsforlittlehands.com/category/slime/
Set up a StickTogether (for added fun, hide the cover so they can guess what the image will be.) Everyone can join in - little brothers, big sisters, even babysitters or parents!
