All this snow is finally taking it’s toll on my household! I’m afraid if we get much more we will have to set up barriers in this house! Is your family about to drive each other crazy from being stuck inside for so long? Here are some activities that could distract y’all and possibly restore patience in your home.

DIY Flying School

First, gather everyone that is going to play. Go over a few paper airplane making techniques. At the end of your presentation, send everyone off to create their own airplanes, set a timer for 15 minutes. Using poster boards or other types of large paper (old boxes, back of old school projects) create a flight school by cutting different size holes. The smaller higher holes should be worth the most points, the larger holes will be easier to master so they should be worth the least amount. Each player gets three flights per round, they will add the points from each flight for the round total, add all rounds for final total. Play as many rounds as you desire. This is a very fun game that can fill a lull in your day. Even when you are finished, the kids will continue to play. Show them how to use YouTube and google to learn to make more aerodynamic planes and they can master their craft for a final competition!

Yarn Laser Obstacle Course

Okay, I’ll admit it. I wish I would have thought of this one when I was young. My cousins and I use to recreate Gladiator courses in the yard to play during the summer. Something this fun would have been right up our ally. All you need is some strategically placed yarn and some adventurous kids.

Indoor Scavenger Hunt

Each Easter, my son wakes up to a note from the Easter Bunny that leads him on an adventurous hunt for his Easter basket. This has always been one of his favorite things. Indoor scavenger hunts don’t have to be limited to special occasions. When you have antsy children who have been stuck indoors for days a scavenger hunt can provide the perfect balance between physical can mental activity.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and here I am not ready for another holiday AT ALL! Despite my feelings about it, Valentine’s day is upon us and it is time to prepare for it. I’ve found some pretty great ideas for handmade Valentine’s day cards to try out this year.


These seem like a great idea for kids to handout to their classmates or teammates. This is a great idea for nieces and nephews as well!

You will find everything you need to make these Valentines treats at GoTeamDuncan.com




This blogger created these amazing Minecraft Valentines  for their son and decided to share them with us! How cool are these? Right up my 9 year old’s alley!

Color Theory Valentines

Do you have a budding artist on your hands? They are sure to love this Valentine’s day art project. She starts off by drawing a grid onto cardstock, her daughter then proceeds to fill in each square using shades of red! The paper was then cut into small Valentines day cards! I must say I am a huge fan of this project, and I am looking forward to exploring this blog a little more! Check it out: mer mag

WHOOPIE it’s Valentine’s Day
