Turning Winter Blues into Indoor Fun . . .what to do when it is too cold to play outside (or go to school)

Just received an email from our local Inspired Arts Academy  . . . thought I would share some of these great indoor winter ideas.

Some fun things to do on your day in?

Do headstands on couch!! 

Some ideas my kids added . . . 

Painting pictures
Playdough fun
Get out tumbling mat and practice tumbling
Practice new cheer moves for Upwards Cheerleading
Play dress up Daisy (our dog)

Read new or old favorite books
Write new stories and make up stories
Make sock puppets out of dad's old socks and put on puppet show
Dress up in all our costumes and have a photo shoot

Dress up dolls and have teaparty
Pretend to be models and wear different styles of clothes . . . play who can make the funnest, funniest, coolest outfit . . .
