Unusual Ways to Keep Your Kids Busy In the Snow

Seasonal - Winter

Introduction:Chances are, if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow, you have already built more snowmen and have made more snow angels than you can handle. Your kids probably get sick of the repetition and being in the cold so they beg you to come inside. The truth is, the more often your kids are outside, the less of a chance there is of your child being sick.

  • 01

    Feeding the Birds

    Feeding the birds can be beautiful in the winter. You can throw some bird seed down on the snow and watch the birds come for it. You can also make your own bird houses with your kids using peanut butter and a pinecone. Be sure to hang the bird feeder somewhere where you can see it inside. This way, your kids can admire the birds even after they come inside.

    Make Tunnels

    Make tunnels or build a snow fort is a good way to keep your kids busy in the snow. You can buy snow blocks to form a snow igloo just like the eskimos. Once the kids play in the snow fort, they are always excited to have their very own snow fort or snow tunnel.

  • 03

    Track Animals

    It is fun to track animals outside because you can see their print in the snow so clearly. Print a sheet of the animals in your area and allow your kids to determine which animal footprint is which. Have them look for cats, raccoons, possums, squirrels, dogs, bunnies, deer and any other animals that may be in your local area.

  • 04

    Hide and Seek

    If you are looking for a good way to stay warm during the winter while you are outside, the best way to do it is to play hide and seek. When your little ones start complaining that they are cold and want to go inside, offer a friendly game of hide and seek. Once they start running they won't want to go inside.

  • 05

    Start a Campfire

    Campfires aren't just for the summer time. In fact, they can keep you very warm during the winter months. Start a bonfire outside and roast marshmallows over it to remind your kids of the warm summer months. You will probably stay warm and cover over a bonfire as well. Don't let the cold temperatures keep you inside.
