Stuck Inside

Here is a link to a list of ideas for entertaining children (scroll to the bottom of the page for the complete list). This is from a radio show called "Everything Creative" on the Mormon Channel, that focused on creativity in motherhood. Here are some ideas that sounded cool (and don't require venturing out into the cold):
  • Make sugar cookies and instead of frosting the cookies, dye portions of a can of evaporated milk and let your kids paint the cookies before you put them in the oven.
  • Put all your broken crayons in muffin tins and bake them at 150 degrees for 15-20 minutes or so (until they melt together solid), to make new crayons. You don’t have to grease the pan, they should come out once they have cooled.
  • Put some pudding or shaving cream in a cookie sheet and let your kids draw pictures with their fingers.
  • Play in cornstarch or flour with measuring cups, sifters, etc.
