Some Ways to Combat Cabin Fever

Last night was the BCS National Championship game.  For Dear Hubby and I, that means dinner in front of the TV.  To pull that off with the wee ones, we had to get creative.  Our solution is one that I think a lot of families can use, especially this time of year: a living room picnic.  We laid our picnic blanket down on the floor, used paper plates, and ate finger foods to minimize mess.  The Big Cheese was so excited about our picnic, she was contemplating the menu most of the afternoon.  And, the girls and I baked a special batch of cookies to make our picnic extra special.   

When the weather makes you spend more time inside, don’t let that take all the fun out of your family time.  Just get creative.  In addition to our living room picnic, we’ve had hot cocoa in front of the fireplace (in sippy cups, of course!) for a special family story time, and we’ve also increased the frequency of our board game playing.  Have any boxes left over from all the Christmas loot?  Turn them in to art projects, dog houses, baby beds – the possibilities are endless.
