It looks like this weekend is going to be a doozy for freezing cold temperatures all over the United States. Trips to the park or playing outside are probably not going to be options for most families. This means you're most likely trying to figure out some things to do with kids at home while it's freezing outside — and if you're not, you should be. Because if you don't make a plan ahead of time,before the big chill sets in, your family will end up driving each other bonkers from being bored and stir-crazy. On the other hand, by bringing back some of your favorite classic childhood games and activities, this weekend could be a great time to indulge in some nostalgia. Not only will your kids have a blast, but you'll have an excuse to relive your carefree youth (ever so briefly).
Have fun playing hide and seek like you did before you knew about things like income tax and flooded basements. Try your hand at Connect Four or Operation (you used to be pretty good) or even make some slime. Of course slime is all the rage with kids today, but if you grew up in the '90s, it's a pretty safe bet you already knew what slime was (thanks to Nickelodeon). Make an indoor obstacle course that would make Marc Summers of Double Dare jealous. With all that moving around, you'll stay warm and bond with your family this weekend even with not-so-warm temperatures outside.
