Play in the Sandbox

If it's too chilly for outdoor sandbox play, bring the fun indoors. Fill a large plastic bin with dry beans, rice, oats, and various kinds of pasta. Provide cups, spoons, and funnels, and let your little ones enjoy scooping and pouring. Spread an old sheet under the bin, and pour any stray pieces back in when the kids are finished playing. (Carefully supervise smaller children.)

Bonus: You won't be shaking sand out of their shoes for the next week.
