Ideas for Indoor Things to Do at Home in the Winter
While outside and fresh air are always best for us, some days are too wet, too stormy, or too cold for our little ones to be outside. Thankfully that doesn’t mean they have to be couch potatoes and forsake all movement and exercise. There are lots of different things to do in the winter that get your kids burning energy on indoor days! We have a wide range of ideas: some requiring parent involvement, some using a screen, and others just for kids to go about solo. There are many indoor activities within the community but these are all ideas you can do at home.
