|My little Puddle Jumper|
One of my favorite things to do if we’re stuck inside is build a fort. We use every pillow in the house along with half of the blankets to stack up and drape over to create this awesome cave where you can color, tell stories, have a picnic or do whatever you want to inside. Half the fun is creating the fort so be creative and see how tall or extravagant you can make it. If you've got one of those indoor tents, those are just as much fun because you can pretend you're camping. The point is to have fun.

My son loves to have dance parties. If the music has a good beat, he’s shaking his booty. It helps get his extra energy out and if you join it it’ll burn some calories while being fun at the same time. I’m a horrible dancer but I do it anyway because it’s so much fun. If you’re being silly and letting loose, it shows your kiddos that it’s ok to be yourself and have a good time even if you look silly doing it. I find that breaking out the “running man” and the “sprinkler” always gets a laugh and I find myself laughing right along. (Which also burns more calories)

If I ever run out of ideas, I turn to Google or Pinterest. There are so many ideas floating around on the net to keep you and your kiddos occupied during the icky weather.
