Looking for something to do inside during those cold winter days? TLC has got you covered with a list of 10 fun things for children of all ages to do on your next snow day!
Make igloos out of toothpicks and marshmallows. When you are done use those extra marshmallows for some delicious hot chocolate and admire your work!
Make sensory bins with items around the house. Whether your bins are filled with noodles, rice, beans, beads, sand, or soapy bubbles, sensory bins are a great way to develop language and sensory skills while exploring.
Make a fort with blankets and pillows. Great for hide and seek!
Raid your recycling bin for paper and fold it up to make some awesome airplanes.
Water play is always fun even on a cold winter day. Fill the tub, sink, or a bucket with water and bubbles and drop in shaving cream or colored bath drops to add to the fun.
Draw on windows with dry erase markers. Decorate those windows for Valentines Day or fill with snowflakes for a wintery scene.
Snowball fight! What a great incentive to help with the laundry and toss those rolled up socks back and forth. This is a great way to practice fine motor and matching skills before having some fun!
Get out a blanket and have an indoor picnic. Children will love the novelty of eating on a blanket in the living room and may even help pack the basket!
Make paper bag puppets and put on a show. Give your puppets silly voices and tell funny stories. Puppets are a great way to practice pretend play, language, and sequencing skills.
