15+ Fun Indoor Activities for Kids That are Screen Free and Frugal!

Winter finally is here in upstate NY!  We just ended our Christmas break – and even though our kiddos had new toys to play with, I was still scrounging to find some fun and cheap activities to occupy the kids with our extra time at home last week.  I really didn’t want the TV to be the main focus with extra time either.  Here is a great list I wanted to share with the rest of you as an easy resource as an answer to the classic “MOM, I’M BORED!!!!!!”  These are easy ideas using stuff you probably already have at home (or are super cheap to purchase).  PLUS, they do not involve the TV or any screen related device!!!

    • How would I get the genetic distance (or Fst values) between unmixed australiods and the rest of the world's populations? Like What dynekes did with the Yo&#Ia.bru39;m curious about the distances from this relatively isolated southern population. I'm also curious about their migration and what they left along the way.
