Hit the library. You may have to explain to your kids that before iPads and e-readers, the library was how one acquired reading material. If you don’t have a card, sign everyone up. Find out when the toddler book time is. Let everyone check out a few books and once home, let everyone chose a “secret” place to read. You might find them reading in the closet by flashlight or on a nest of pillows on the floor of the family room.
Hit the mall. Many malls have a “children’s playground” for toddlers to run off steam. After an hour of that, treat everyone to ice cream before heading home. You might even have the chance to speak in complete sentences to people your own age.
When all else fails, pop a bowl of popcorn, grab the snuggly blankets and park on the couch with a G-rated movie you can all enjoy. One day of video saturation is not going to turn their brains to mush.
Relax and enjoy the time with your kids. There’ll be time to clean up the house and get things back on schedule when the weather lets up. Before you know it, they’ll be off to college and on to their own lives, where they can complain about how their kids are stuck inside and driving them nuts.
