5 things to do with your kids when it's too cold to go outside

(Jackson, Wyo.) - It is currently -9 degrees in Jackson and we have seen it dip as low as -26 around the county in the last few days. The kids are out of school and it might be too cold to venture outdoors for activities. If your kids (and you!) are going stir crazy inside, here are five activities to do this week with your kids: *1. Jackson Hole Children's Museum:* Besides the regular attractions, the Jackson Hole Children's Museum has several activities this week for warm, indoor fun for kids. On Tuesday, December 29 from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m., they are hosting a Tye Dye Snowflake Making activity. On Wednesday, December 30 from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m., there is Mini Snow Globe Making. On Thursday, December 31 from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m., they will have New Year's Eve Popper Making. Note that they are closing at 3 p.m. on December 31 and are closed on Friday, January 1. *2. National Museum of Wildlife Art:* The museum will be open this week from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., including on January 1 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Note that this Sunday is FREE entrance for all locals for the First Sundays program. *3. Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum:* Take a walk through Jackson Hole's History at the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum. There are currently Homesteading, Dude Ranching, and Hunting exhibits on display. The museum is open Wednesday - Sunday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Adults are $5 and kids under 12 are free. *4. Winter Scavenger Hunt and Raptor Encounter:* Teton Raptor Center will host a Raptor Encounter at 11:00 a.m. and the scavenger hunt will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 30. Both of these will be held in Murie Room A of Hotel Terra. The Raptor Demo will be indoors at this location and the kids can pick up their first clue for the scavenger hunt at this location as well. *5. Rhythmic Circus: Feet Don't Fail Me Now:* Tonight at 7 p.m. at the Center for the Arts is FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW, which premiered in August 2008 at the Ritz Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when the group's dancers and founders joined forces with the seven Twin Cities' heavyweight musicians. Together, they integrated an inventive style of rapid-fire tap with a variety of musical genres to create a show that presents a wildly creative view into the indomitable power of the human spirit. Tickets for this event are available at the Center for the Arts website. *BONUS:* For those who like to brave the frigid temps, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King Mountain and Grand Targhee Resort are open for snow sports, as well as King Tubes, the Treetop Adventure Course and the Cowboy Coaster.
