Forget video games. Keep the kids busy on dreary days with our favorite indoor activities that are easy on your wallet.
Assemble a Time Capsule
Have fun while preserving memories. Fill a shoe box or coffee can with family photos, mementos, and present-day items (such as a sports star's trading card). Older children can tuck in a letter to their future selves. Decorate the time capsule, store it in a safe place, and agree on a time to open it -- such as when your youngest turns 18.
Bonus: Your family will have a blast opening it years down the road.
