Fun Winter Activities For Your Kids
Keeping kids active and happy during winter events can be tricky. This is because everyone wants to stay indoors to escape the cooler weather outside, which often results in cabin fever and boredom. Fortunately, there are so many ways to motivate children to engage in physical activity and have fun indoors during winter.
Here are five ideas to get you started.
1. Create crafts with your children
Creating crafts with kids is a simple and fun way to keep kids active and happy during winter events. There are virtually countless forms of crafts that you can create with your kids indoors, ranging from making drawings inside snow globes to cutting mittens out of doilies and stringing them up with yarns. Start thinking, the options here are endless. You could also browse crafty sites to get ideas.
2. Rent bounce houses & inflatables
Renting inflatable bounce houses, slides, obstacle courses, fun jumps, moon walk and other toys and supplies for your winter event can provide a solution to all of your kids entertainment needs. Inflatable houses and inflatable jumpers provide kids and even adults to participate in physical activity and have a lough during those cold days. While jumping and laughing in bounce houses, it’s so easy for kids to forget it is winter and engage in rigorous activity that keeps them warm and healthy. Whether you’re hosting your next birthday party, fund raiser or family event, inflatables party rentals keep the fun going all day long in winter.
3. Have a backyard bonfire with your kids
Relaxing in front of an evening bonfire in the backyard can be a perfect ending to a busy winter event. The orange sparks dancing off into the night and the scent of the burning wood will entertain your kids while keeping them warm. Remember to check the local regulations relating to lighting fires in your area.
4. Making gifts for the family
Involving your kids in making gifts for your family in winter can give you the opportunity to create memorable, personalized gifts for your loved ones while teaching your children valuable craft skills. Roll out craft paper and ask the children to decorate it. Make sure you have markers, colorful ribbon, as well as stamps, stickers, glitter, glue and any other festive decorative material you can think of. Your kids may also put their imaginations to work in creating DIY designs on T-shirts or other memorable gifts from DIY supplies, such as wooden keepsake boxes, ornaments and frames. You can find great supplies and resources to make gifts for siblings, grandparents, teachers, neighbors and the whole lot in craft stores and online.
5. Have a music jam
Having a dance party is another great way to end the day with your kids. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to spend lots of money on it. Kid love music, which is the only thing you may need. A few games and decorations, including glitter, streamers, balloons, and crepe paper, can go a long way in ensuring kids have loads of fun. There are many great music themes that you can use for your kid’s winter events. For younger kids, you can play popular children’s songs. But older kids may want soft rock or rap/hip-hop parties. Just crank up the music and get moving!
