With our first blizzard under our belt, it’s safe to say that winter has officially arrived here in Jersey. And while building snowmen and going sledding is tons of fun, there’s only so much time that we can spend outdoors before we start to lose feeling in our toes and fingers.

Here are some great activities that you can do with your kids to keep them entertained and to keep you from going stir-crazy.  All of these indoor activities for kids can be created with items you may already have in your home–because no one really wants to shovel out their driveway, am I right?
