I had a special request for this post, Indoor Activities for Older Girls, and I loved the idea! It’s so true that a lot of what is found on blogs these days are for younger kids… AND, I just happen to be the mom of 3 girls that would love some ‘older’ activities. And, with it being so cold outside, indoor activities are in better! Any of these activity ideas would be great for them to do alone, with the help of their mom, grandma, or to do with friends. If you have any fun indoor activities for older girls to share, please leave a comment!
