I know officially it is not winter, but it already feels like it here. Hoping to have a few activities to pull of out my bag when the kids are bored and the days are long and cold, I rounded up some activities to keep us learning. Some of them are easy and don’t take quite as long and others a little more involved. We always keep back some chalk pastels too and our easy books for doing seasonal pastels.
