When you live in Evergreen Park, Illinois, it’s important to have some winter activities planned for the kids to do indoors when the weather is just too cold to go outside. The kids may be home for several weeks, so the more you have planned, the easier it will be to keep everyone happy.
Arts & Crafts
It’s always a good idea to have some arts and crafts supplies around. Regardless of age, kids want to express their creativity and having kits and paper, markers, and other things around can make it easier. To give kids an idea on what they can make, you can choose a category, such as:
- Holiday gifts
It doesn’t matter what it is – but it’s a great way for them to use their mind to create something unique.
Have a Party
You’re probably not the only parent around who is trying to think of ways to keep the kids occupied. Throw a party and invite a bunch of your kids’ friends. The theme of the party can be dance, pajamas, s’mores, or anything else that you can think of.
Create a Story
Tis the season for reading a lot of different holiday books. Instead of reading the same ones over and over again, let your kids write their own. It can be about a specific holiday or about winter in general. Then have them illustrate the whole story and share it with you one evening before bed. It may become your favorite tradition during winter break.
Get creative and do things that your kids love to do. Have plenty of supplies on hand so they can jump from one activity to the next without growing bored.
