Indoor Activities

Have an Art Show
Have each family member make a few pieces of artwork to display around the house. Use kitchen scraps like fruits and veggies to paint with! Cut the end of a bunch of celery stalks and dip them in the paint. Then, press the stalk into the paper and release. You will be left with a flower-like shape. Add a stem and some leaves and you have a simple painting of flowers! You can also paint with apples and potatoes! Cut them in half and use the flat end as shape stamps.


Slime Recipe
Slime is a fun trend that kids have been perfecting over the last few years! It’s easy to make and super customizable! Grab a few ingredients from Giant Eagle and get your slime on!

Base Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles Elmer’s washable school glue
  • 1½ - 2 Tbsp. contact saline solution
  • 1 Tbsp. baking soda


Combine the base ingredients, then knead the slime, just like you would with dough, until it becomes gooey. You want to continue to knead and mix until it no longer sticks to your hands. Add food coloring and other fun things like glitter, gems, beads, mini foam balls, buttons, ice cream salt, and so much more!

More Kids Crafts In the Kitchen
Creating with food is another fun snow day activity because, eventually, you get to eat it. You can make snowmen out of marshmallows and pretzel sticks, cut fruits and vegetables into different shapes and let their imagination run wild, or try these easy, educational options:

Baking Clay
Using three simple store-bought ingredients, you can turn baked clay into cool decorations and ornaments!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1½ cup warm water
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Combine the salt and warm water. If you want the clay to be a certain color, add in food coloring or powdered tempera paint now. Add flour to the salt water and knead for 8-10 minutes or until the dough feels mixed and not sticky.
  • Roll out the dough – about ¼-inch thick. Cut shapes and place them on a cookie sheet. Let bake for 30-60 minutes. Let cool.
  • Use paint to add decorations or designs to your baked clay shapes.
