Cookie Jam

Cookie Jam, a puzzle-based game with over a thousand levels, will take you on an adventure – and a delicious one, at that. The game can be synced across multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Amazon apps and Facebook. Since it’s cold out, we recommend complementing your Cookie Jam play with a cup of hot cocoa and of course, a cookie.

Yoga Studio

If the idea of being cooped up indoors with your kids, significant other or roommates all weekend has you stressed out, consider doing some yoga. For $3.99, the iOS compatible Yoga Studio app will let you choose from a list of 65-minute classes that cater to all skill levels.
