During the winter I try to come up with different forms of entertainment for us. It is so easy to feel cooped up and antsy without fun distractions. One of our projects this week is to make bird feeders and hang them outside our family room window. I have a bird guide for the kids to identify which birds we are attracting to the feeders and a logbook for them to record and sketch our visitors. Yesterday we blew bubbles outside in the frigid weather to see if bubbles really do shatter like glass when they hit the ground. Our bubbles tended to land with a gloopy plop rather than breaking into a million pieces. We were quite successful with turning boiling water into snow. We threw a pot of boiling water up in the air and it immediately turned to white snow as it fell to the ground, pretty cool.
Do you have any fun ideas to keep us from going insane?
