Kids love snow days. Even parents enjoy a bit of a winter bonus day, but are you often at a loss what to do with the kiddos? We have some fun suggestions to do with the little kiddos. Most of the recipes are with items you probably have at home. We don't want you to race out in the snow for any of these items, so substitute what you like with items on hand.

If a snow day isn't in the works for you, still try these fun activities!

Cool 3D Paint

You need:

  • 1/2 cup white glue
  • 1/2 shaving cream
  • Food coloring

What to do:

  1. Mix the glue and shaving cream in a bowl.
  2. Divide into two or three smaller bowls, and mix in a few drops of food coloring to create different colors.
  3. Let sit for a few minutes, then use as paint to create 3-D pictures.

Scratch 'N Sniff Paintings

You need:

  • Kool-Aid (assorted flavors)
  • Tempera Paint
  • Paper

What to do:

  1. Add dry Kool-Aid drink crystals to slightly diluted (with water)paint (about 1 tsp. to half a baby food jar size of diluted paint). The diluted paint gives a wonderful watercolor effect!
  2. Have kids paint pictures, and when they're dry, scratch and sniff the paint.

Ice Sun Catchers
