Winter weekends. No matter how much you love the time away from work, spending two straight days with cabin fever-addled kids in the middle of January can break the most patient of parents.

-Place a stack of blankets in the family room, playroom, or their bedroom so they can build a fort.
-A box of old clothes and accessories becomes fodder for fashion shows and all sorts of pretend games.
-Take a big cardboard box from a dishwasher, refrigerator or other appliance, a box of markers, Legos (or other building blocks) and some little cars.
