We live very very close to Lowes. And recently discovered that they have a program every other Saturday morning where you can come in with your kid and they will give you a little project to make. Before Christmas we made a little house (meant to be a gingerbread house, but not really made of gingerbread). The roof hinges open, which I find tremendously cool. So you can store secret treasures inside!
Yesterday, the girls and I went and Lili made a tic tac toe game box. Mira enjoyed watching all the hammering. And it was a fun, free activity that got us out of the house!
