Winter FUN!


Not ever day will mother nature allow us to go outside.  Here are some indoor winter ideas for those days you can’t get your active kids outside.

Have a blow dryer and some crayons laying around.  Well, grab them and a poster board. Glue your crayons to the board and have your kids blow dry the crayons.  The heat will melt them and create a MAGICAL art piece.  Who knew you gave birth to the next Van Gogh.


Go on a scavenger hunt.  Print up pictures of a book, a brush, a tooth brush, a cup, a blanket, or anything you have laying around.  Or draw the pictures with your kids on note cards.  Hide these items around the house and have your kids find them.

Make a fort!  Any kid or adult for that matter love to make forts. Grab some blankets, pillows, rope, whatever you and your kids can find. Be CREATIVE! 

About katiekroll3

Hello there! I Am Katie or aka Mommy, Ma, or Mom. I have three handsome young boys, Cayden is 4, Caleb is 2.5, and Camden(Cam) is 10 months. I am married to my best friend Casey. We just traveled a crossed country from WI to NY in the past four months. WOW! What a change and trying experiences that has been. But, through all the stress and changes comes life lessons. I have learned more about motherhood, myself, and the courage/strength I never knew I had. I have the ability to make it through each day as a stay at home mother with no outside help from family and friends. I have the strength to cry at those moments I want hide my face in a pillow. I have the courage to find myself "Katie', outside of being the most important person I will ever be in my life, "mommy". Moving out here to the North Country has brought new friends to my life and new adventures. Besides being a stay at home mom, I attend Herzing University Online. I have less than I year left until I receive a Bachelors in Business Administration with an emphasis in Human Resources. I am not only proud of this accomplishment for myself, but also for my family. I want them to always know that education is so important. Outside of being Mommy, I enjoy walks, being with friends, watching reality TV, reading novels, helping others, traveling, and being with my husband.

  1. Hi there! Love the ideas you are finding. My fave is the melted crayon idea… I want to do that and I don’t even gave kids to do it with or for! And I always built forts growing up…loved it and STILL DO! Love you Kate!
