It’s no secret that I’m terrible at crafts. Basically, I don’t even try. My husband likes to remind me that I have the finger dexterity of Kermit the Frog.
So what’s the logical thing to do when a Breakfast TV producer asks if you can do a four-minute demo of four activities that kids can do on a snowy day?
You say yes.
When I told Vivian that I was going to be on TV showing parents how to keep kids busy, she asked, “Do you even know anything about that?”
Nothing like being busted by an eight year old.
I ignored her and researched some activities that met my criteria:
- readily available materials (no glitter)
- easy to set up (no glitter)
- easy to clean up (no glitter)
- possible to drink a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) while your children do them independently.

Then tell me:
Do you have opposable thumbs?
Are you crafty?
What’s your go-to activity to keep kids busy?
