Right now I am sure I am not the only parent ready to pull their hair out due to their kids jumping off the walls. We are only about half way through winter where I am at in Western Massachusetts. It has been a very loooong winter with out of control freezing temperatures & really bad snowstorms resulting in us having to stay indoors a lot.
I am a mom of 6 kids and right now I am thankful that we had moved into our house this past year because we probably would be missing a kid or two by now if we still lived in our 3 bedroom apartment (j/k… kinda lol). With February vacation around the corner & most likely another 6 weeks of winter weather, I have found these awesome ideas to help ease the cabin fever in my home we can do together or individually:
- Bake brownies, cookies or cupcakes
- Build a model or other craft/project
- Build a snowman or fort after a big snow storm
- Do a family game night or movie night
- Do those fun crafts you have had saved on Pinterest for the past year
- Do a treasure hunt
- Get those to do list projects for inside your home done
- Go for a walk around your neighborhood
- Have an indoor picnic
- Have your kids actually clean their room (a great response to their favorite “b” word)
- Have a snowball fight
- Learn something new as a family or individually
- Make a meal for an elderly neighbor
- Make an obstacle course in your living room/play room
- Make Your Own Pizza
- Plan a day trip where you can get out of the house & do something fun together
- Take a long shower or enjoy a nice hot bubble bath
- Watch home movies
