Phew! Who knew we’d ever be caught up in something called a polar vortex? We made it through this time and if it should happen again (or, if you loved laying around in your PJs so much you want more indoor-only days), here are 10 great indoor activities that’ll keep you warm and busy. Click through the slideshow to take a peek.
Shop ‘til You Drop Grocery Store
Tots are obsessed with those kid-sized grocery carts at the store, and you can bring the fun home by setting up your very own grocery store for them to shop til they drop. Open your cupboards and grab a few cereal boxes, get empty egg and milk cartons from your recycling bin, and rummage through your kid’s play food collection to stock the ‘shelves’ of your store. You can design your makeshift store as simply or as elaborately as you’d like. After you set up shop, let your child “drive” to the store on a play vehicle, and have her put her baby doll in the front of the shopping cart. Let her wheel the cart through the aisles or stations of items to make her selections, then use a play cash register to ring up her sale and let her bag up her purchases in a reusable bag. Next, let her be the grocery clerk and you be the shopper! Learn more about setting up an indoor grocery store here.
