Only 54 days until spring if I am counting correctly. We seem to be experiencing endless days trapped indoors escaping the bitter cold generously provided by Old Man Winter. Thanks mister.
Monsters to the rescue….
Our Monster Bowling will bring a warm fuzzy feeling to indoor play.
After working up an appetite from bowling, it’s time for Monster Sandwiches. Caroline at Chocolate and Carrots featured these frightfully delicious sandwiches at Halloween, but we are adding them to Monsters to the Rescue.
Miserably cold Minnesota winters must have some chocolate, and in the form of Monster Brownies today would be most fitting.
While in a monster mood, Mr. Printables has the 123 for making colorful Monster Bites utilizing wooden clothes pins.
If you haven’t gotten your fill of Monsters by now, why not try your hand at making your very own loveable one? (for 3 years and older)
Any other monstrously fun boredom buster ideas to share? Please send them on over, we would love to include you in a post.
Snow Day – No, COLD Day
The National Weather Service is predicting that most of the state of Minnesota will experience the coldest temperatures in a decade with lows reaching -30 degrees Fahrenheit and wind chills predicted to reach as low as -50 degrees Fahrenheit.
To protect Minnesota schoolchildren from forecasted dangerously cold weather, Governor Mark Dayton announced that all of the state’s K-12 public schools will be closed Monday, January 6th.
“The safety of Minnesota’s schoolchildren must be our first priority,” said Governor Dayton. “I have made this decision to protect all our children from the dangerously cold temperatures now forecasted for next Monday. I encourage Minnesotans of all ages to exercise caution in these extreme weather conditions.”
Some of us recall our much loved snow days, but this day off with extreme wind and cold should not allow fun in the snow. Do you have entertaining activities planned for your kids?
