Inside: Looking for fun things to do when its cold outside? Want a list of fun indoor winter activites?

It was getting colder as the weekend approached. Grand plans to put away the winter jacket diminished as I realized the things I planned wouldn’t be as fun anymore. But the kids will still need to spend some of that youthful energy! Do we brave the elements anyway and have frozen noses when we come in or are there other adventurous things we can do?

  • Cozy up around a fire or heater and watch a rented movie (online or via Redbox, you can check out some online from various libraries)
  • Make S’mores inside or out (microwave ones are ‘ok’ sometimes right?)
  • Decorate a Gingerbread house or other holiday bake kit
  • Put together a holiday foam or paper scene
  • Enjoy a warm bath
  • Make an ‘indoor’ snowman with pillows and have him ‘look outside’ the window
  • Play with artificial grow snow
  • Play board or card games
  • Train your dog or cat
  • Tell stories
  • Build a hideaway or fort
  • Make the cats a fun box structure, castle, or adventure world
  • Make cookies
  • Teach each other to draw something or play guess what this is
  • Play video games
