Even though Joaquin seems to be less threatening to us in Northern Virginia, the chances that you're going to want to go out in the dreary weather are probably slim. We've put together a fun list of indoor DIY projects to keep you (and your kids) from going stir-crazy this rainy weekend. Show us your finished projects by posting them to our Facebook Page!
