>#387: Shoot Elastics

>Target practice time! Grab some elastics and aim for a target. If you don’t have a target, you can make one out of cardboard or a piece of paper. Draw circles on it–different circles equal different points! The circles can be random (all over the paper or cardboard), or they can be inside each other

>#385: Play a Video Game

>Sometimes, it is nice to challenge yourself with a video game. Just don’t forget about the real world–take breaks! Make this a family activity: Challenge your family to a video game tournament. This activity promotes fine motor skills, and problem and puzzle solving skills.

>#384: Sledding / Tobogganing

>Go sledding or tobogganing! Dress up warm, watch out for rocks, trees, and other people and have a blast! Make this a family activity: Get the whole family out there–it’s great exercise and can chip away at those winter blues. This activity promotes physical activity and enjoying the great outdoors.

>#381: Play With Your Food

>Play with your food! Can you make a picture? A face? A mountain or volcano (mashed potatoes and gravy make a great volcano). Make this a family activity: See what your family does with the same food. This activity promotes creativity.
