  1. Those rainy, cold winter days are perfect to play cards with your kids. Even the little ones will learn to count and recognize their numbers. As they get older the adding comes along. Then the problem solving. Try it you’ll like it. And cards are easy to throw in your purse for those find something to keep them busy moments.

  2. Target is the best….How about the new Targets with the great market centers. Thank you for helping us save big bucks….

  25. Most fun indoor activity this winter: painting an entire wall in our kitchen with chalkboard paint.

  51. (I love the Target dollar section too!)
    I am just discovering this site – what a wonderful site for family fun ideas!! (I am always looking for new yummy frugal recipes too – can’t wait to check that out!)

  52. We’ve been doing redbox nights. With all the free codes we’ve been getting free movies for the night and watching them, while sipping on hot cocoa……..
    For the little ones that stay home, we’ve been playing with some of their new Christmas toys. Funny thing is the fancy ones don’t get played with as much as the simple building blocks and army men!

  53. my kids have just discovered a love for building forts, so on a cold day, we create a fun fort.

  54. My 9yo daughter likes to make up games using balls or stuffed animals. Recently she made up a game that we toss the object and she made lines for different pt. levels on the floor. She has a really good imagination. We also love to read, do a puzzle, or paint on canvas.

  55. My 1 & 3 year olds love to play hide & seek with me- the oldest counts & the 1 year old & I hide. We all have a blast.

  56. Baking is great for cold afternoons! Last week we made cut out cookies and the kids loved choosing shapes and rolling out the dough, and of course, frosting like crazy!

  57. Love the childrens clothes and the $1 section.

  70. I love that you offer great things like giveaways on here! 🙂

  73. Site looks great. We love to bake together. Also love to shop at Target.

  74. I like to blow bubbles in the house for my toddler. If I use the long lasting bubbles like Gymbo Ooodles, he can practice catching them on a plastic spoon. A fun game and great for his development!

  75. This is my first time visiting. I found you through moneysavingmom. your web-site is super easy to navigate, and very “clean” looking thanks windi

  76. We love to go to Target to the $1 section at the front of the store and pick out a “goodie” of the week.

  77. We use chairs and blankets to pitch a “tent” in the living room. Then we eat our lunch inside of it.

  78. we play hide and seek on cold days, my two little ones are still young enough that they think I can’t find them when they are on the couch with their eyes covered:) It’s great, it gives me some moments of quiet .

  79. I’d love to win the gift card to give to my mom because she’s so good to me. I live in Guam and have a hard time buying certain things, and she’s always great about getting items for me. (she just bought and sent me 2 boxes of washing soda so I can try and make my own laundry detergent). I love her a lot, and this would be a small way to say thanks!

  80. We like to blow bubbles in the shower since it’s too cold to head outside and do that!

  86. I love that you take the time to do posts raising awareness about breast cancer.

  87. First of all Happy Birthday! I trust it will be a wonderful year.
    We used to make tents with blankets and couch pillows or dining room chairs. That always made the house look messy but the kids loved it. We would also have “Picnic” lunches inside in the winter. That would consist of eating lunch on a blanket in the family room with paper plates. Just something to change it up a little bit.

  88. This is my first time visiting. I found you through moneysavingmom.

    During the winter months I always make sure to have a supply of puzzles for the kids(you can even make your own with oaktag glue and scissors. Play dough and coloring also keeps them busy and me sane.

    I really think your daily chore idea is unique(I had a hard time finding it though). I also thought the waffle idea was a cute out of the box solution to a problem. The winter snowman looks like something that my 10 year old could do with minimal involvement. Definitely some cute ideas.


  89. I like making hot dogs for lunch on a Saturday in our fireplace, followed by a monopoly marathon.

  90. I have dance parties with my toddler to get the energy out, but lately he’s really into reading books and doing puzzles.

  91. I love the fact that your site is about “the Parent’s” so many of the web sites are just the mom’s it is good to know that you are both involved in the children’s upbringing. I would love to stretch the dollars at Target with your giveaway. I would like to see more on fun ideas of what to do with kids.

  92. I love Target. Thanks For the chance at winning. Neverwon anything, Thanks Again for the chance
