Indoor Winter Activities for Kids

Family Winter Activites

Kids love playing in the snow in the winter, but when the temperature is below zero, you have to bring them in from the cold sometime. When you do, having a range of indoor winter activities for kids will keep them busy and let you stay in where it’s warm!

Crafts they’ll have fun putting together

Kids love making crafts, so get your supplies out and get started on some winter-themed crafts. Toilet paper rolls, construction paper, and foam cups make great materials for cardboard polar bears and penguins, printable winter wonderland scenes, snowmen, and more.

Treats and snacks they can help make

It’s a great learning experience for kids to help out in the kitchen, and they’ll have even more fun when they’re making candy or a favorite snack.

Experiment with icy blue rock candy, stir up some hot chocolate with whipped cream made into snowflake shapes, or cut a tortilla into a snowflake and dust it with cinnamon and sugar. You can even just add decorations to premade snacks like string cheese.

Homemade toys they’ll play with for hours

These crafts might make a mess, but is there anything more kids love than messes? From homemade slime to play-based clay, there are tons of squishy substances you can easily make at home.

One of these is play snow, perfect for when there’s no snow on the ground and your kids still want to build a snowman. Baking soda and shampoo or shaving cream will form fake snow that kids will be putting their hands in for hours.

Of course, you can always chart a course to a nearby indoor destination when you purchase a new Ford vehicle from Westland Ford.
