Quiet time or restaurant activity Put velcro dots on the ends of popsicle sticks. Kids can make letters or shapes over and over again. Brilliant.

Indoor Snowball Fight SNOWTIME ANYTIME 40 pk:Amazon:Toys & Games

Fun with pool noodles. Stock up early in the season at the Dollar Store.

Introducing.... THE GLUE SPONGE! You just cut a sponge to fit in a container, pour glue in it, and the kids can just press their little cut-up pieces of paper on it.

10 fun things to do with your kids for every month of the year - they are easy to do yet you don't think to do half of them!

OOBLECK. This stuff is amazing. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup water in a bowl. To color oobleck, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding to the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. Oobleck defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you quickly smack oobleck with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move oobleck it reacts like a liquid.

Make a Hovercraft This is a brilliant kid craft--so brilliant that you may indeed find yourself playing with it too. Not that I'd have any experience with that.

playdough snow: love the idea of mixing in peppermint extract to make it even smell fresh and wintery!!

Cloud Dough (the stuff at hands on museum) - 8 cups flour & 1 cup baby oil. It feels like flour as you run your fingers through it, but it's moldable.

    I read a recommendation to use an edible oil (olive, vegetable, etc.) in case it is accidentally ingested

Put magnets on the back of puzzle pieces and children put together on a cookie sheet. (A great travel activity!)
