Arts and Crafts
There’s no activity more tried and true for a day indoors than good ol’ arts and crafts. Crafts give a chance for kids to tap into their creativity and express their individuality, but between school, soccer practice, and piano lessons, you may not normally have enough hours in the day to fit them in. Take advantage of the downtime and browse our Activities page for thousands of craft ideas, from a cut-and-tear collage to egg carton goggles.
Think you need a laboratory to do cool science experiments? Think again! Check out our collection of fun-packed science projects that are sure to keep cabin fever at bay. Grab yesterday’s newspaper to learn how stripes help zebras survive in the savanna, play archaeologist and make your own fossil, or dip into aerodynamics by testing different paper airplane models. These activities are more than busywork—they’re fun, hands-on ways to get your child interested in science!
Bake Up a Storm
