    I love your list!! We make homemade slime & play-doh often when we’re inside on a weekend afternoon. My boys love to “construct” things out of them.

    Great list! We’ve been freezing here in TN too so we’ve been trying to come up with ways to stay occupied during the cold temps too

    Right now my kids are upstairs playing with their doll houses! They often do several of these cool weather activities. I think their favorite is making new crayons from old ones!

    GREAT LIST! Even though it doesn’t get freezing here in FL for some reason it has been extremely cold here this past week. We have been spending a lot of time indoors. We just made homemade silly putty the other day and I am really tempted to get started on that banana and Nutella ice cream this afternoon!

    You’ve got winter doldrums all taken care of over there. If your boys ever tell you that they’re bored, you must roll your eyes in disbelief! ;)

    YOU are so creative. Love the list and now I am going to have to print it to keep on fridge so I can remind myself (and the kids) that there ARE things to do this cold winter season! ;-)

    Great ideas! We’re in NC too and were tracked out of school for weeks, so we really got stir-crazy! I’ll save this for next track out (or crazy temperature days). Thanks!

    What great ideas! My kids are tired of being stuck inside because of the cold. Pinning for the future so we can have some indoor fun!

    When I was a nanny, I LOATHED rainy days. I loved going to the children’s museum, but then again so did all the other moms on those days and it was packed!! Great ideas for getting creative inside!

    Tablet pc devices are great for keeping childrne educated and learning.They are good things to keep them occupied in a variety of circumstances.

    That’s a lot of nice things that can be done on a cold day. I have kids who love being indoors so having a few extra things to do is always nice.

    Great ideas, very creative! I hate for my kids to be so obsessed with technology all the time when they don’t want to be outside.

    What a great list. I’m always looking for things to do with the kids on cold & snow days to keep the kidlets occupied!

    Sadly, there has been a lot more tv watching during the freezing days. (It’s so, so bad sometimes.) This past weekend, we made a trip to the mall, just so the kiddo could run around the play area. It was a total hit.

    Thank you for these ideas for cold days. We are getting into a routine around here and need some fresh activities!

    Snuggle with mama would be my favorite too. I love to snuggle and read book with my son. The vanilla scented bubbles sound great too.

    I haven’t heard of this tablet before but since I’m in the market for a new tablet I might swing by a Best Buy to see if they have a demo version. And that toilet paper bird feeder is a great idea, I actually use one in my pet birds cages :)

    We love Magic Tree House! I always play them on the drive to and from school.

    We were trapped with a Winter Break of 23 days (not that I counted or anything). My son’s school had a pipe burst, so we could have really used these. :) I’ve pinned.

    Tablets can be lifesavers when the kids are stuck inside! But I love this list of other things to do on a cold day because I have to pull my kids off their electronics sometimes! Pinning so I can find later!

    Love it!! I think I’ll make up one too. It’s getting ready to be really cold her in TEXAS again, so I want to be prepared. You’ve got some great tips too!!
