Brush Off The Cabin Fever And Try These Children Activities This Winter!

It’s not easy to keep children entertained with fun activities for children throughout the long, cold winter. With the colder, shorter days, cabin fever can set in and with that, boredom. All it takes is a little creativity to find the best winter activities for children that will make your kids happy – and if you pursue some of them as a family, you’ll even create a few lifelong memories if you’re lucky . Below are a few ideas you might want to try:

– Build Frosty The Snowman in your yard. Scavenge around the house for old hats, a carrot for his nose, buttons for his eyes, a scarf and whatever else they can come up with to being their creation to life. If you have more than one child, have them make mini snowboys and girls to represent themselves in your yard.

– Go ice skating as a family at the local rink or skating pond.

– Going Out Sledding is one of the most fun wintertime activities for children. It’s also a great way to wear the kids out!! Putting the kids in charge of taking photos and video is another way to keep everyone engaged and from getting bored.

– Kids who love to learn about and explore nature might love a nature hike in the woods where you try to identify animal tracks in the snow.

– For kids that love arts and crafts, collecting pine cones and leaves from outside and turning them into wreaths and other holiday décor is a great activity.

– Kids who love to be creative might also enjoy making holiday cards. Whether they’re analog cards made from construction paper or digital photo cards, there are plenty of options to keep them occupied.

– Cooking together as a family is one of the best winter activities for children. On a side note: if you struggle to get kids to eat their veggies, have them cook a meal with veggies in it. Kids are actually far more inclined to eat any meal that they helped to create. And, of course, kids love to bake sweet treats as well. Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles might also appreciate these as gifts.

– Check out the events calendar at your local library or community center. You can sign up for art classes, visit a special story hour and more.

– Last but not least, consider having a family game night. This is one of the best wintertime activities for children and families since, whether it’s with a video game or a board game, the family is interacting and spending time together.
