Both kid have colds but still have boundless energy but running around or going outside is resulting in coughing fits. So I've trying to come up with a few activities that will keep them interested but fairly calm. I changed up a few of my go to play mediums play dough and water.
First we made an arctic animal water bin.
We placed a bunch of arctic animal toys in the bin and poured in water. I found a small blue tarp at my local hard ware store for $1 that I put underneath.
To add another sensory element we added some plastic snowflakes. I'm not a huge fan of these but picked up a bag on clearance and we added a few handfuls to the water.
Then I pulled out our play dough and added marbles and golf tees. This was a huge hit!
The boys liked making sculptures and playing "golf" games.
