Ok, so it didn't snow as bad as expected here, but we were stuck in the house for a few days none the less. With the temperature being so low it meant we had to play inside. And playing inside for too long makes for some pretty antsy boys in my house. Here's our high five from this
chilly flipping freezing week!
1. DIY Star Lab
I wish I could take credit for this but I can't. My 5 year old, Parker, gets the cred for this. Vented pizza pan (or you could punch holes in a disposable pan) placed over a flashlight displays a star scene on the ceiling. The kids had fun with this for hours. Parker even crashed on the couch under the stars at night!
2. Arctic Play
Tub of frozen water with a little splash pond was an instant hit...until their fingers got so cold and turned bright red! (yes, I am aware that those are not arctic animals. Use your imagination-it's all we had people)
3. Iced Mocha
I mastered the "use what you have" iced mocha. Coffee, hot chocolate and ice cubes- works for me! (it really was pretty good)
