I live in Eastern Washington (not dc) and its still COLD here. I also have a newborn in the mix, so I can't really take the kids outside. I'm looking for indoor activitie ideas. Cost effective is great. Games, crafts...etc.

I have a 3 year old and a 21month old

I don't know if I am supposed to quote you or not....  but one of the best parent magazines out there is Family fun.... you can use this website also for seasonal ideas and crafts ( http://familyfun.go.com/ )  I have a very active 3 yr old (and a not so active 11 yr old boy)  and I always have to have something for her to do.  The new thing that I am doing with her right now is using the craft foam to make picture frames and magnets for presents.  Foam is easy to use and comes in a self stick type.  You can add jewels, glitter or any treasures around the house.  There is a wonderful for foam glue just for embellishment.   I usually buy big squares of foam and cut them for a cheaper project.  JoAnn's Craft stores have kits, sets and different packages for holidays....  rememeber to use the 40% off coupon.  A neat project also is to get a small plastic paint roller use newspaper and anything you find on your walks.  Lay them down such as leaves and paint over them with finger paints and save the newspaper for grandparents giftwrap.  Any baking or cooking is good with kids too they love it!  A good no bake recipe is chocolate peanut butter balls. Anything science even water and oil and soap is fun for kids too, they will think you are the smartest person ever!  ~good luck~
