Winter (Indoor) Fun

Feb 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Family Time

Building puzzles together is a great family time winter activity. There are so many great puzzles to choose from. Try to choose something that even the youngest family member can join in on or work in teams. For really young children, you might just want to choose a couple of floor puzzles.

Jazz up your hot chocolate by trying something new. Add in some flavored coffee creamer. Mix it up with chocolate milk. Switch up your marshmallows; try a jumbo sized one or snowman shaped ones. Go extreme – add marshmallows, whipped cream, drizzle chocolate syrup, add a piece of chocolate and sprinkle some cinnamon on top!

Have an indoor snowball fight! Sorry kids, you won’t be using real snow.

Items needed:
bowls or cups
miniature marshmallows

Set a timer for a minute and see who can toss the most marshmallows into a cup or bowl. Or place two bowls next to each other; place miniature marshmallows in one. Blindfold the player and have them try to spoon the marshmallows from one bowl into the other one.

How about making Marshmallow Snow Forts?

Items needed:
miniature marshmallows

See who can build the sturdiest structure by only using marshmallows and toothpicks!

Teach your children how to cut out snowflakes. Brighten it up by using colored paper. Go crazy and toss the snowflakes around or set up a fan to create a blizzard.

Draw a winter nighttime picture. Create your own winter nighttime scene by drawing with white chalk on black construction paper. This is a nice follow up to reading Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner. You can illustrate your own version of what you think snowmen do during the night.
