Are you feeling like you’re running out of indoor activities to do with your kids, and are now just trying to survive indoors this LONG winter? I know I am, and for a lot of us in the USA, it’s been a cold winter, and there are still a couple months of it left (in our neck of the woods, at least)! All this being cooped up seems to be affecting my children’s behavior; they are much more likely to argue with each other lately, and I think the weather is greatly to blame! Lack of sunlight sure puts me in a less desirable mood!
This mom is on the hunt for ways to bring new life into our days, so I asked a few kid bloggers for help and searched my own site for some inspiration! Yes, I read my own posts sometimes to remind me of fun things we have done in the past, lol! This is what I came up with, and I can’t wait to put them into practice with my own kiddos this winter!
Movement and Dance
Here are some fun tips on music and dance for little ones!
From Little Sprouts Learning
This Indoor Ice Rink from Joy In The Works looks super fun!
Boredom buster and energy eraser game,(this is one of my kiddos favorites) from Lessons and learning For Littles
Fingerprint Science For Kids From KC Edventures
Elsa’s Frozen Slime from Crayons and Cravings
Treasure Hunt with rhyming clues from Firefly Magic!
My son is going to love this: treasure hunts are one of his favorite things, and he keeps asking me if words rhyme as of late. I can hardly wait to give this one a try!
Craft and DIY Fun
DIY Window Clings from Arsty Farsty Mamma
Magical Friendship Wands, from Celebrating With The Bug
My kiddos loved making these and giving them to their friends! The options are limitless, and this is a great DIY for using up extra craft supplies!
Aren’t these little grass heads from Red Ted Art just about the cutest thing you ever did see?
Fun Free Miniature House Pintables from Firefly Magic!
