29 Activities To Keep The Kids Busy Indoors This February

As I write this letter I hear the wind howling through the house.  What a week it has been - fleece jackets and park outings to parkas and indoor activities.  I hope everyone is staying warm and safe.  I wasn't prepared to be stuck inside today, so I put together a list of inside activities.  The list includes one activity for each day in February.  Let's hope we will not need all of these!

1.  Spend the day in pajamas
2.  Exercise with the television or tape
