st. Louie — Winter Storm Warning begins Thursday and runs through Friday. The wind chill begins on Friday and continues through Saturday. These are very dangerous conditions.
We recommend keeping it indoors to keep children safe. Here are some ideas for entertaining little ones and younger ones at home during the cold season.
Do a winter science project. Mad Science of St. Louis will conduct experiments and demonstrations that you and your children can watch and try at home.
Create your own gateway arch. Did you realize that the Gateway Arch is a giant math problem? To inspire future engineers, learn how this Arch was built and create your own model at How Stuff Works . Making Math Visible includes a catenary arch classroom experiment that can be done at home from a few pieces of cardboard and carefully cut. The tabletop model sticks together because of gravity, like the foam arch blocks in the science center.
Play with your new holiday gifts. If you received a board game as a gift, plan to play it with your family day and night. This helps children learn how to organize letters, count, recognize, and use hand-eye coordination.
Balloon tennis allows you to bring the fun of the outdoors inside. This is a risk-free technique that develops athleticism without the risk of breaking the ramp.
