Dear Moms: Tips for Stir Crazy Kids?

May 30, 2024

Submit your question for Dear Moms by email or via our American Mothers Community on Facebook.

Dear Moms,

We are nearing the end of winter break and I’m at my wits’ end with my two elementary-aged children. We’ve had an unusually snowy December, and January looks to be more of the same. I’ve done everything I can to keep them entertained, but the reality is that we rarely have this kind of winter so we’re not sure how to acclimate. Any ideas on activities, indoors or out, to keep us from losing our minds? Please help – there’s another storm coming on Monday!

Thanks in advance,
Megan M.
