How To Keep Your Kids Entertained During Winter
Is anyone else ready for winter to be over, like I am? The comic below pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter.
If you’re like me and you’re going a little stir crazy from all the cold weather, here are a few things you can do in your Central Kentucky home to keep the winter doldrums away and keep your kids entertained.
Mess-Free Finger Painting
No 1 Has More Fun has a great idea for painting, without the mess. Put different colors of paint in a plastic bag and tape the bag to the back door or table for a fun afternoon activity. You can even experiment with different paints, hair gel, or even glitter.
Many kids love being in the kitchen, so why not whip up a batch of these snowman cookies from A Thrifty Mom to pass the time? Kids can decorate to their hearts desire, plus, you can give them a math lesson when you’re measuring out the ingredients.
Masking Tape Olympics
With the Winter Olympics coming up in just a few weeks, get your kids in the spirit by setting up a few games with just a roll of masking tape. What To Expect has a few ideas you can use, like hopscotch, bulls-eye bowling, and balance beam.
Laser Beam Obstacle Course
Melanie from Rocking My 365 Project has a great idea for all budding James Bond’s out there. Take string and tie it across a hallway or room and have your kids find their way through. If you don’t have string, you can use streamers, ribbon, or toilet paper.
