Fun Indoor Activities To Keep Kids Busy In Winter
Fun Indoor Activities To Keep Kids Busy In Winter
27 May 2024

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t have a little family fun! Miserable winter days may put a damper on outdoor activities, but they’re also a great opportunity for indoor adventures and quality family time.

If you're wondering how to keep your kids entertained and engaged on a gloomy day, look no further! We’ve got a few ideas to inspire a little indoor family fun.


Get artsy and crafty
Unleash your child's creativity with an arts and crafts session. Set up a crafting area with paper, markers, crayons, glue, and assorted craft supplies, and let their imagination soar. From painting mini Picasso masterpieces to making homemade cards, the possibilities are endless.

Enjoy an indoor picnic
Ever thought of turning your lounge into a picnic spot? Simply roll out a blanket and enjoy a family picnic indoors. You also don’t have to do all the work yourself. Encourage your kids to help you make sandwiches, fruit skewers and other healthy picnic treats. They’ll learn a thing or two about preparing their own food and if you use picnic-style paper plates, you don’t have to worry about washing too many dishes.

Become a mad scientist!
Transform your kitchen into a mini science lab to conduct exciting experiments with your little lab assistants. From creating homemade slime to creating “elephant toothpaste”, there are lots of fun learning opportunities you can explore. We found some great ideas over here.

Build a movie tent
Kids love a blanket fort and, with a little creativity, there are loads of ways to make them. If you’re not feeling inspired, we found a fun tutorial over here. Once you’re all set up, dim the lights, pop some popcorn and station your kids in their new “movie tent”.  You don’t have to pop a TV inside of it, an iPad will do just fine. And just like that, watching their favourite movie becomes an exciting experience they’ve helped to create.

Bust out the board games
Dust off your favourite board games and challenge your kids to a friendly competition. Whether it's classic games like Cluedo and 30 Seconds or newer ones like Pictionary VS AI (yep, that’s a thing!), board games are a great way to have fun and bond as a family. Also, don’t underestimate how much kids love a challenge. Having a large puzzle or even a monster Lego set that can be spread out on the dining room table is another simple way to keep kids entertained.

Family time is precious time 


Cold winter days may keep you indoors, but they’re also an opportunity to make family memories that last a lifetime. We can’t take this precious time for granted as nobody can predict the future, but you can safeguard it with life insurance.
