We all remember impatiently waiting for the news that we didn’t have to go to school because there was a snow day. It meant a day of relaxation and fun including playing inside drinking hot cocoa to making snowmen in the fresh fallen snow.
Now if you have children of your own you know it may not be so easy to keep them entertained while you carry on with your day to day business. (Moms never seem to get snow days.) So, we compiled some fun indoor games and crafts to keep them happy and you happy. You may even want to join them!
Lights. Camera. Action. Give your little one the chance to produce and direct their very own movie at home. The Clay Animation Movie Kit allows your child to morph his or her own characters out of clay and let a story unfold against a choice of backdrops.
Now these characters need voices of course! Your kid can use the World’s Smallest Voice Changer to change his or her voice into four distinct voices. That way each character will truly come to life.
Lastly, you have to film your motion picture! Use any smartphone to film the movie and then watch it on this Smart Phone Projector. Its just like an old-fashioned projector and it only uses cardboard and a glass lens, which makes it incredibly easy to set up. Grab some popcorn and watch your child’s film come to life. Bravo!

Paper party. Watch your child create cute and creative paper dogs from this Doggy Kit. Make one that looks like your hound at home or even make a garland to hang across the wall. All you need is the kit, scissors ,glue stick, pencil, and a black pen.
Another source of fun can be found with the Photo Props Kit. You and your kids can make up to 22 props that will lead to hours of creativity and crafts. Once you are done you can stage a photo shoot to show off all of your new creations!
Mmm… donuts. As your children wrap up their day of delightful fun, give them a warm hot cocoa in a deliciously cute donut mug. One of our favorite winter treats is Smores Hot Chocolate found at minimalistbaker.com.
