Article: 4 Ideas for Indoor Winter Fun Print

Winter may mean less time outside, but that doesn’t mean less fun!

Here are 5 ideas for entertaining indoor activities with the kids.

1. Jell-o or Ice Excavation

Freeze a few small toys in water in a food storage container, cake pan or even a balloon, then let your kids get to work excavating their toys from the ice with a spoon. Rachelle at Tinkerlab went all out with a gelatin mold and bottles of colored water.

This project could get a little messy, so make sure you do it in an area where a little water won’t hurt– outside, or in the bath, if that’s easier! The less water you use, the faster the ice will melt and the easier the excavation will be.
