My kids have had several days off of school due to extreme cold temperatures. (Example: Tonight's forecased low: -14 degrees F. Our high today was 9. Apparently it will be totally TROPICAL later this week, perhaps even as high as 20 degrees!)
I was at my wits' end trying to entertain these monsters of mine, until I checked out the e-newsletter from Creative Homemaking. I love the site with the complete cleaning and organizing index (although you can't tell it from the state of my home today).
So here's the article the title of mine blog promised: Winter Craft Ideas for Kids
Fun for mom, too.
