When the days start getting shorter and the nights chillier, you know that winter is on its way. But, just because it gets cold doesn’t mean that there isn’t an abundance of fun activities dads can do with their kids. If you’re looking for ideas to brighten up the day of your little angels, you’re in the right place!
When Winter’s Outside, the Fun Is Inside…
Have a Pajama Day
Who doesn’t love wearing pajamas all day, eating cookies with warm milk, and cuddling up on the couch next to the fireplace when it’s all chilly and wintery outside? Your kids will surely love it!
Have a Craft Day
When it’s windy, gloomy, and rainy outside, it’s time to channel your inner Picasso and take out the paints, pens, glue, and all sorts of artsy knick-knacks your kids love. You can try making Christmas tree ornaments or take on other projects.
Make Your Family Tree
Kids have an innate interest in the past, especially when it involves people they love and know. You can start by telling stories of your childhood and gradually create a basic family tree. You can combine it with the crafts day for extra fun.
When You Feel Like Going Outside…
Sometimes all it takes to have a good look at the night starry sky without experiencing the midnight winter chill is to go out on your balcony or in front of your house. And kids love stars!
Go for a Walk
When you’re going out for a walk with small children, it’s good to keep close to your home in case they get too cold or they hurt themselves while jumping in the snow.
Outdoor Ice Skating
If conditions allow it, you can plan a day of outdoor fun and take your kids ice skating. If you happen to see an untouched pile of snow, be sure to lay down for a quick session of making snow angels. Your kids are absolutely going to love it!
