When it's cold outside....

You make your own fun indoors!

Gramma set up a pillow jump for the kids. It started with one pillow they had to jump over, then a pillow was added after each jump. Then it escalated from there! My oldest going for a jump over four pillows.
The middle boy couldn't quite clear four pillows but he sure had fun giving it a try. They would slide to a stop at the end. It's amazing that they didn't ram into the wall and put a hole in it.

The games continually were changing. Now we went vertical with the pillows, four high was no problem for the oldest boy.
And then we switched the game up again.......
It turned into "Superman".




So if the winter blues have your kids stuck inside during the cold, cold weather, set up some pillows and let them have at it. Set up an obstacle course, have a pillow fight (yes, that happened too), be creative and burn some of that energy.

How fun! We might have to try that soon! Our boys love to make forts. They will hide out in them and play "Pirates" or anything else that they come up with. Such fun on cold days!
