Cave Play

It’s cold and dark outside way too much during the Ohio winter. However, this is one activity where the extra hours of dark is a good thing. If you’re not experiencing lots of darkness, lucky you!  Don’t quit reading though because you could easily do this activity in a basement, closet or windowless bathroom. 

  1. Give each person a flashlight or a headlamp. Both are easy finds at many dollar stores. 
  2. Turn out all the lights!  
  3. Continue about your “normal” play activities. 


It was amazing how much more fun snack time and building with magnatiles became after we turned off the lights!  Simple changes can and often do make the day of our littles ones. Don’t hesitate to think outside the box a little.
