Do you like that video? I made it myself! And you can make your own too! I found this really fun website called XtraNormal. It lets you choose characters, actions, and a setting, and then use text-to-speech software to create dialog. It's so easy (and free). Try it out and let us see your videos! It's really fun (and good for a potential snow day?).

Snow Day!!!

Happy snow day!!!

When you're tired and cold from sledding and snow ball fights, here's 10 more ideas to keep you busy both inside and outside.

1. Fill a spray bottle with water and few drops of food coloring. Then make your way back outside and decorate the awesome snow sculptures you made.

2. Try making snow ice cream! It's actually pretty easy! Directions can be found here!

3. Get out your old Lego's and create something huge! See if you can make a whole city (if you've got enough blocks).

4. Go Internet window shopping. lets you make a Wish List for every member of the family. Search the site, add items, prioritize your list and add notes!

5. With Valentine's Day less than a week away, check out this page full of Valentine's Day recipes and make something for someone you love.

6. This one seems so wrong, which is why it's so very right. Find instructions here on how to make a totally washable and awesome stained glass window paint! Then make your masterpiece.

7. Remember blanket forts from childhood? Bring back the blanket fort!! Remember to leave a peep hole to watch TV or movies out of. And make sure to stock up on snacks ahead of time so you don't have to leave.

8. Make a time capsule. 2010 is the perfect year to stock up on memories. Fill a shoebox or coffee can with things like newspaper articles, photos, magazines, music, and whatever else you can think of (click here for ideas). Make sure whatever you put in will remind you of 2010 in the future. Then hide the box (in the basement?) and mark it with a big "Do Not Open Until 2020!"

9. Make meal time fun. Eat in the dining room and/or with fancy dishes, or try have an indoor picnic on the floor.

10. Learn how to make paper beads! Then string them!
