Fun Indoor Activities for Winter

The winter weather tends to trap us indoors time after time, and when this happens, most of us are frustrated and annoyed. Being trapped indoors might not have been fun in the past, but it will be fun from now on! Here are a number of engaging, entertaining activities to do inside to keep your family busy.

Make an awesome breakfast
Everyday we rush our breakfast to get to school or work on-time. There’s no need to rush on an indoor day. Days indoors are the perfect days to make big breakfasts with all your favorite foods; treat yourself and your family to foods such as French toast, bacon, eggs, sausage, waffles, or pancakes with a side of hot chocolate. By the time you’re family is finished eating the breakfast, you’ll be wishing for weather to trap you indoors more often!

Make an indoor fort
With your kids’ creativity and imagination, your living room (or any other room in your home) can be transformed into an indoor fort! Use chairs and blankets to make a cozy hideout for the day. 

Spend the day with movies and popcorn
This is pretty self explanatory; who doesn’t love a good movie with some popcorn? 

Camp out by your fireplace
If you have a fireplace in your home, grab some pillows and blankets and lay down together, as a family, nearby to warm up. While you’re laying there, it could be fun to eat some snacks, play a few games, tell stories, or read a good book. Make sure no one gets too close to the fireplace! 

Create an indoor obstacle course
If your kids need to burn off some energy, setting up a safe obstacle course might be the perfect way to spend a portion of your day. Use objects such as pillows, hula hoops, bench chairs, and string to create an exciting adventure for your kids to conquer. 

Story time
Turn off all electronics and bring your entire family together for some old-fashioned story time. Read a few stories aloud, and when you run out of stories to read, make up some of your own!

Winter days can be fun no matter what! Fun activities put the win in winter, and these indoor activities do just that. Keep warm and enjoy your everything that winter has to offer!
