Tabletop Mini Golf Game

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love to think of fun ways to get through the winter – here in New York it can be pretty brutal so indoor activities are always a plus. This tabletop mini golf course brings the outdoor fun inside so you can play during any season. You can design your course to be as challenging as you like and add all the special features you can think of. Set it up as a fun party activity on those cold nights.

Crepe Paper Swirlers

by Kathleen Ballos

These DIY crepe paper swirlers are really simple to make, but they are so fun to play with! If you like taking pictures while waving sparklers around, these are a good indoor alternative. I made these with New Years Eve in mind, but I think they’d be fun for any party. You could even make some matching confetti throwers!

Instead, here’s a special DIY for Christmas crackers shaped like birthday candles. Make a bunch as a fun surprise for the birthday girl or boy and fill them up with mini treats, toys and candy.
