The Unscripted Weekly: Kids Edition

The Unscripted Weekly features links to various articles I have come across in my travels across the internet.  Feel free to share your own internet journeys, and thoughts on these articles in the comments section.

Looks like winter may not be quite finished yet.  Many areas of the country have experienced warmer than average winter temperatures, but like I’ve always heard, March is “in like a lion, out like a lamb”.  Well, the lion is about to roar according to meteorologists.  You can check out the latest weather forecast here, and read below on what to do with kids if you do get snowed inside in coming days.

If your tween or young teenager is anything like our daughter, your house is full of slime experiments.  It’s been a thing for “us” for some time, so I wasn’t too surprised to see a DIY article on new ways to create this gooey goodness.  If you’re shopping for bread and milk in preparation for the possible weather, grab some glue while you’re at it.

While too much screen time isn’t good for any of us, there may be some screen time that is better than others.  Check out why Minecraft may help your child in critical thinking skills.

It never hurts to have lots of possibilities for kids if it looks like outside may not be an option.  Here are over 100 different projects for kids of all ages, and parents alike.  Enjoy!

And when it’s time to settle in with a cup of cocoa, and grab a book, here are reading recommendations for children up to age 12, and for young adults.  A snowy or rainy afternoon spent by the fire isn’t a bad thing at all.

Happy snow days!
