Kid’s Winter Activities for Families that Live Where it Snows

There are many fun and engaging activities that you can do with children during the
winter season. Here are some ideas:

  • Go ice skating: Take your children to a local ice-skating rink and spend the day gliding on the ice. It’s a great way to stay active and have fun.
  • Build a snowman: If you live in an area where it snows, building a snowman can be a fun and creative activity for children. You can also have a snowball fight or make snow angels.
  • Bake winter treats: Spend a day in the kitchen with your children and bake some delicious winter treats such as gingerbread cookies or hot cocoa.
  • Decorate the house: Get your children involved in decorating the house for the winter season. You can hang up lights, make snowflake decorations, or put up a winter-themed wreath.
  • Have a movie day: Spend a cozy day inside with your children and have a movie day. You can watch classic winter movies like “Home Alone,” “Frozen,” or “The Polar Express.”
  • Go on a winter nature walk: Bundle up and take a nature walk with your children. You can look for animal tracks in the snow, collect pinecones, or just enjoy the winter scenery.
  • Make winter crafts: Get creative with your children and make winter-themed crafts such as paper snowflakes, snow globes, or pinecone bird feeders.
  • Read winter-themed books: Curl up with your children and read some winter- themed books. Some popular titles include “The Snowy Day,” “The Mitten,” and “The Snow Queen.”

These are just a few ideas to get you started. With a little creativity, there are endless
possibilities for winter activities to enjoy with your children.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
