January and February can be the most boring months of the year for kids. School is back after winter break, and it’s not quite nice enough to go play outside. That’s why it’s important to think of family-friendly indoor activities to stave off boredom.
Board Game Night
The best way to give your loved ones something to look forward to is by scheduling a family game night once a week. You can play classics like Guess Who?, Sorry!, Scrabble, and more.
Build a Fort
It’s a childhood staple: amass plenty of chairs, blankets, and pillows in the family room, then let the kids construct their own “fort” and stock the inside with snacks and games. You can even “camp” inside that night!
Have a Puzzle Going
Oftentimes, challenging puzzles are huge and can take more than one set of eyes. Set out the puzzle so that the whole family can contribute as they pass by.
Bake Something Together
Teach kids life skills and eat delicious food by having the whole family pick out a recipe and bake or cook it together.
Buy arts & crafts supplies and help your little ones put together creative projects of their own.
Use these family-friendly indoor activities to make it through the winter months, or use them as inspiration for your own versions!
