As the winter season approaches, outdoor activities become less and less frequent. This need to stay indoors during winter is often justified, even when the kids don’t really think so. Children, as well as adults, are prone to becoming sick more often during these months. It is no surprise that you may want to keep your family indoors. However, staying cooped up inside can be frustrating, annoying and boring. Therefore, we’ve compiled some of the best tips for having fun with your kids indoors.
1. Campout by the Fireplace
Camping outside may be out of the question, but that does not mean you can’t still create your own campout. Children are full of imagination, and this may be the perfect time to take advantage of it. Gather your kids around the fireplace for an evening of roasting marshmallows, telling creepy ghost stories and even sleeping overnight in the living room. Want to go the extra mile? If your living room is big enough, you can even incorporate your real tent to give it that true camping experience. If you’re using a gas fireplace, just be sure to use caution, as gas fireplaces can cause a fire.
2. Movie Night
What could be better than an old-fashioned movie night with the family? From preparing snacks such as popcorn to selecting the movies you want to watch, make an occasion of it. Fortunately, streaming services have allowed us to watch any movie we choose from the comfort of our own home. One of the best ways to make movie night a little more unique is to turn it into a game. Challenges such as who can pick the funniest or scariest movies can really take your movie night to the next level.
3. Arts & Crafts
Some of the most enjoyable experiences happen when people are being creative. This is true for both adults and children. Therefore, a few weeks before winter really begins to pound your area, make sure to gather some arts and crafts supplies from your local store. Keep these secrets for when your family is forced to stay indoors. Arts and crafts allow you to explore your imagination with your kids. Create ornaments for the upcoming holidays or a Christmas letter to Santa about all the things they want this year. Whatever project you choose, we are confident that your children are going to love it.
Winter can often be a bummer for both kids and adults. Staying indoors is no fun for anyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s hopeless. Simply adhere to the tips above to begin planning your attack on winter indoor boredom.
