(Dqy 19 & 20) To warm the frigid

The past 3 days it has been absolutely frigid. Not snowy like normal, but cold and windy. So windy it rattles the wall of our 2 story apartment and sounds like someone is pounding on the walls. In fact on day while I was playing with little man, the wind blew so hard it made such a loud noise that he thought someone was knocking at the door. Needless to say, I haven't wanted to venture outside in the frigidness outside, so we have stayed in. Which calls for some creativity. How to keep an almost 2-year-old inside for 3 days without going crazy? Fun projects. Like these:

salt dough handprints for the grandparents

The fun "corn starch and water" goo
Look at that face of concentration...he LOVED this!

Blowing "big bubbles" (which he yelled the whole time)
This is him saying "BIG BUBBLES!!!" This was his favorite

He loved this too! I had to pull him away from it after 45 mins so we could go grocery shopping!
Made caramels and turned them dangerously delicious
I dipped our caramel in chococlate at a craft day with friends...
they are to-die-for-melt-in-your-mouth-but-not-pretty caramels now...
 And then the occasional Mister Rogers episode
We call this their gansta looks
So while the rest of the world is frigid and covered in snow, we have been keeping warm, snuggley and occupied, having fun together. 
Liam and I decided we are going to do a "science" project a day. I am stoked.
(Thank you pinterest)
Maybe this winter won't be so bad after all.
