It's wet in Texas. And while we're not complaining about all this rain, your kids might be suffering from a case of cabin fever. Try these indoor games and activities to turn those frowns upside down.
Bowling - gather up ten empty water bottles from the recycling bin and fill them with water to add a little weight. Arrange the water bottle bowling pins in a hallway and grab a basketball or soccerball. Keeping score will help your kids work on math skills while having fun.
Face Painting - a bit of cornstarch, food coloring, face cream and water is all you need to create your own face paint. Not to worry ... a little soap and water is all it takes to remove the flower from your cheek.
Explosion of Colors (and laughter) - not sure what happens when you mix food coloring, vinegar, and baking soda? Visit our Pinterest page here to find out.
Papier Mache - make fun masks using newspaper, balloon, and glue (or water and flour). You'll want to plan ahead for drying time. Click here for step-by-step instructions.
Edible Tinkertoys - build a race car, house or favorite animal with marshmallows and thin pretzel sticks. Simply skewer the marshmallows with the pretzel sticks to create an edible masterpiece.
