With 65 million people sitting in Hurricane Irene's path this weekend, its safe to say that most East Coast families will be spending a lot of time inside in the coming days.

Some easily convert household items into play things, but others need some guidance. These home staples make great toys for kids of all ages and can keep your children entertained indoors while the wind is howling outside. Here are some of my favorite ways to keep my children on the move and creative when a hurricane is a-brewing.
