Kids have only been back in school for a couple of days after the holiday break (We used to call it Christmas vacation). NOW, we have a snowstorm on the way tomorrow that is expected to drop anywhere from 8-15 inches of snow in greater Boston.

Build a fort:
Take all the cardboard boxes from Christmas and put them around your kitchen or dining room table. Kids will play for hours. Don’t have cardboard? Take a big blanket or sheet and drape it over the table. Give them a flashlight and some coloring books. They’ll love the privacy!
Go buy some latex finger paint that washes off. Let your kids paint a wall, then you can wash it right off!
Slice and bake cookies. A stove, a cookie sheet and some dough. Simple!
