Winter is here, and along with it comes a winter wonderland of adventures waiting for your little ones to explore! From outdoor play to cozying up indoors, there are plenty of options for your kiddos to take advantage of this Winter break!
In this blog, we’ll explore various ways to keep busy, whether it's inside or outside - there are tons of fun ideas to help ensure everyone has a fun and happy Winter Season!
Allow your kiddos to venture outside for some fresh air and holiday-themed fun! With students on break from school, embrace this winter season with creative and outdoor activities that will help keep your kiddos active and engaged!
Playing Outdoor Games & Scavenger Hunts
Set up an outdoor scavenger hunt while hiding clues and a trail of candy canes near your holiday decorations outside! Or, create a list of winter-themed items, such as pine cones, icicles, etc., that they must find and collect with a fun prize waiting for them!
If you have other kids in the neighborhood, you could coordinate an outdoor game, such as a winter obstacle course, or even set up a snowball fight that offers endless hours of fun for everyone!
Creating Snow Play Extravanagas
Help boost their creativity with snow play, such as building a snowman or an igloo. You can even have your little ones showcase their unique snowman style with a fabulous frosty fashion show! Provide an assortment of accessories such as scarves, hats, or mini jackets from your favorite boy's clothing boutique, and turn your yard into a fashion extravaganza!
Enjoying Winter-Sport Activities
If the weather permits, it’s also a great time to introduce winter sports such as sledding, skiing, snowboarding, or ice skating! It’s also a beautiful and peaceful time of the year to enjoy a nice nature walk exploring the outdoors and its winter beauty! These outdoor adventures can help provide a unique blend of fun and exercise while also embracing mother nature for a real winter wonderland!
Once the winter chill sets in and the fun outdoor festivities are limited, it can be challenging to keep your little ones entertained indoors, especially over an extended period of time. That’s why the winter season can sometimes seem daunting, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, allowing you to spend more time with family and friends and engage in indoor fun, too, so take advantage!
Movies & Storytelling by the Fireplace
After enjoying outdoor winter festivities, there’s nothing better than winding down with some hot cocoa and getting cozy by the fireplace with your loved ones! Turn your living room into a movie theatre featuring their favorite holiday flick, top candy of choice, and popcorn for the ultimate movie-watching experience!
You can also create a cozy reading nook with blankets, cushions, and their favorite reading book! Encourage your little ones to get creative and make their own winter-themed story! They can explore storytelling by capturing the magic of this season, while also fostering their love for reading!
Create Magical DIY Crafts & Keepsakes
Turn your home into a winter wonderland of creativity with arts and crafts for your little elves! From DIY snow globes to personalized tree ornaments, these crafty activities can provide hours of fun for your kiddos! You can even double it up as keepsake items to add to your winter decor or as Christmas gifts for loved ones!
Embrace the Holiday Spirit with Winter-Themed Baking
Baking is a delightful activity that everyone can enjoy together! Create simple, kid-friendly recipes that can turn your kitchen into a learning lab for your little chefs!
