Set up a couple folding style card tables, cover them with large blankets, & throw a few stuffed animals around the room. The kids have been camping out & reading books in their "forts" for quite a while now. We might even get crazy & have smores style trail mix for afternoon snack!! Fun day

I mop the floors every other Friday (Swifter WetJet during the week) and in the winters when we can be outside until pick up I have taken to pushing my dining room table into the living room after PM snack and doing the exact same. Sometimes the get blankets over it and sometimes they donít but they love it either way.

It's amazing what kinds of simple spur of of the moment things will keep them happy for awhile.
Even The dcks are getting sick of winter and snow and seem to be overly territorial about our snow mountain outside. So last week I brought a bucket of Little People and dinosaurs to play with in the snow. We enjoyed over an hour of fun outdoors with 0 squabbles. Then for the 4 yo who looked like she was getting bored, I took some chalk and wrote alphabet letters all over the backyard for her to find.
