Play Dress Up

Kids love to play dress-up. Set out some old clothes, Halloween costumes, and fun jewelry to let the kids have fun playing dress-up for a while. If you have some old makeup running around, they would love to play with that for a time to help keep them busy

Have a Baking Day

Baking homemade cookies or treats with your kids is a great way to keep them busy, get some quality time with them, and help keep your home warm with the oven going.

Get Active

Gather everyone for a game of floor is lava or use masking tape to build a hopscotch board down the hallway to burn off some steam. This will help burn off some extra energy; it will also warm them up by getting them moving.

DIY Library

Take out some of your books and line them up in a central location. Have each child (and adult!) grab a book and cuddle up to read. If you want to be really fancy, you can cut some papers into library cards and stamp each paper as they “check out” a book.
