Beat the Winter Blues
As a mother of 4, I am always looking for frugal ways to keep my kiddos entertained. Here are a couple of our winter favorites!
ICE CUBE HUNT: Need: food coloring, ice cube trays Fill your ice cube trays with colored water. When frozen, remove from trays and toss out in the snow. Have the kids gear up and head out to hunt for the colored ice cubes!!
SNOW PAINTING: Need: spray bottles (found at dollar store), food coloring Fill each spray bottle with colored water. Bundle up and send them out to make colorful creations in the snow!
ICE SKATING at the MALL Need: nothing (skates included) University Park Mall has opened an ice skating rink in its parking lot this season, FREE of charge. The rink is open daily from 10:00am—8:00pm through January 22nd.
SLEDDING Need: sled, tube, snowboard Bourissa Hills, located in New Carlisle by Olive’s football field, is a great place to take your family for a couple hours of snow filled fun!!
