When the Windchill is Frigid, We Stay Inside

We were under a windchill advisory starting yesterday at noon. So, we stayed inside that afternoon & evening. But staying inside means providing some other activities that are new so that they don't get bored.

So, I made some glittery playdough, which sister thought was great to have silver glitter in their playdough. They had fun playing with that. It's different watching them play with it. Henry likes to pick off small pieces and put it into a pile. And when I would make him balls, he would grab the ball of playdough, like he would grab any ball, but since his hands would sink in he would look at it like it was junk and throw it away. Sister liked rolling & shaping the playdough into different letters.
Another thing we did was play with the dot markers. And finally, I also found a couple of large-ish boxes for them and got out the large cardboard tube and a sheet and let them play & imagine.
