Snowbound?

Kids still home? Are they ever going back to school? Looking for things to do? Here are a few things to keep the crazy away:

How about a karaoke party? Put their favorite songs on and let all the kids “Shake It Off” and jump around. Might be worth buying some gift cards and downloading some music from iTunes or Amazon.

Challenge your kids to write a story or play. Make puppets, costumes or whatever else they want to come up with. Record it with  your phone and share it with friends.

Print off Sudoku, crosswords, find a word or other puzzles. Keep their brains sharp.

Print off some coloring pages or creative doodling. Older kids might enjoy Zentangle. Find out how here.

Have a spa or bubble bath day. Get out the bubble bath, crayons, shaving cream or whatever is hiding in the drawers and let the kids have fun.

Write letters to mail to friends and family members. Everyone loves a little mail.

Go through the craft supplies and see if there are any kits you haven’t opened. I have found a few we have never tried waiting for the perfect day.

Let your kids FaceTime, call or email some friends that they haven’t seen for days and days.

Let your kids cook or bake. Find a new recipe online with things you have available. You can pick recipes by items on hand here.

Do a fashion shoot or show. It is a great way to get the Halloween costumes out again or see if your old clothes fit before summer.

Book downloads from the library. You can download MP3s or PDFs of books.

Build a pillow or sheet forts.

Have a tea party or a fancy dinner. Get out china and candles. Make it fun.

Try some online yoga or learn a new dance with videos.

Plan your garden. Ask the kids what they would like to grow and figure out how soon you have to plant it.

Go crazy and scream. 😉 Spring will get here eventually.
