I live in Maine where it is cold and snowy, so getting outside with both kids is a challenge because of the crazy weather. It's not so bad for my 4 year old, but my 1 year old can't be outside as long. I'm looking for some fun ideas for crafts, games, ideas, for things I can do with them to keep them entertained while we have to play inside. I have a 4 year old girl and a 1 year old girl. Thanks ahead of time for your help! :-)

You can bowl with pop cans or empty water bottles and a ball of aluminum foil. You can have a "camp out" in the living room. Make tents out of blankets and kitchen chairs. Throw some toys and books in there, and the kids will help keep themselves entertained. You can make pizzas, cookies, etc. Make Christmas/winter decorations for the house. Get washable paint, and the large paper tablets and let the kids paint. I like to go to second hand stores and get cheap clothes and let the kids play dress up. Get cheap make-up and fingernail polish and let them up make you over. Have them recreate their favorite movie scenes and tape them, if you can. Make cookies/brownies or other goodies for the police/hospital/firefighters who have to work on the holidays. My kids saw the Barbie Fashion movie and now have they make fashion shows out of crazy concoctions of the clothes they have in their closets. There are lots of ideas.
