I feel dumb posting this. I need creative minds... because I don't have one.
My sanity depends upon answers.
Tomorrow is the second day school is closed here. Today my older two kids spent the day with the neighbor 6yo girl. I'd like to see my kids tomorrow, give the other mom a break, not feel so guilty for passing them off, etc. And the guilt is huge for not knowing what to do with my kids.
The high temperature will be barely above freezing and the wind chill fairly well below. We are in Oklahoma. My kids are not used to this. The 1/2" of snow is not enough to entice them outside for more than two minutes before they're inside again. I'm not driving anywhere on the roads.
My 6yo is the kind of kid you need to plan the day for and keep one step ahead of, or she's moping around saying she's bored and is only happy playing internet games. (I'm fine with that, just not for 12 hours.) Keeping her busy is the biggest hurdle I have to homeschooling her. If I were to try to it would either be too easy and it would waste her time, or it would be too difficult and she wouldn't try. From her view, there is nothing to do here b/c she's seen it all. Even the neighbor girl won't play here, and they immediately go over to her house. Everything is "bo-ring." My daughter is definitely an extrovert who needs people.
The younger two would be happy with whatever. If my oldest is bored, they're all bored, picking on each other and screaming. Which is precisely when the neighbor shows up asking if they can come play, and I feel awful because I don't know what to do with them.
