  • I personally want to say play-doh first. We have a box of in in the closet and get it out in the winter when we aren't outside much, or days the kids feel like it.

    Also watercolor paints aren't too messy.

    Making a clubhouse with the couch cushions? I don't care for it but as a kid I did,,,

    How about making a treasure hunt for one another, or getting some markers & making cards to send to grandparents...

    Decorating cookies isn't too messy...

  • Go fish. You can play with regular go fish cards, or just a deck of regular cards. Even the two year old could do that, or she can't tell the numbers, play in teams with you taking turns being on each kid's team.

    Play "family" letting the kids take turns being the parents. Warning: they get a power trip from this!

  • Make homemade ice cream! It's fun, educational, and you'll have something to cool you off.
