With winter in full swing, it’s not always easy to keep your kids entertained. 

Spring, summer and even fall are great seasons for kids. The weather is generally nice enough during these seasons to go play outside anytime anyone mentions anything about being bored, but when it’s cold, it can really limit your ability to keep your kids entertained and engaged. Luckily, our day care in Newtown is here to help! Our child care professionals have come up with the following list of the top ways to keep your kids busy all winter long:

#1. Let them help you in the kitchen. 

Having your child cook or bake with you is a wonderful way to bond, but it’s also good for teaching your kids about math, patience and following directions. There’s no reason to ever be bored in the winter when you have a kitchen!

#2. Go to the children’s museum.

If you have been looking for a fun, educational way to occupy your kids for hours on end, then there’s no better option than the children’s museum. Children’s museums can be a fun option for the entire family, and if you are looking for an easy way to save, check out the museum’s website to look for discounts and free days.

#3. Play games as a family. 

Nothing brings a family together like family game night will. There are many fun family board games out there, but if you want to be a bit more creative with it, you could come up with a scavenger hunt, play hide-n-go-seek or even create your own indoor hopscotch!

These are just a few ideas for keeping your kids busy this winter. Want to learn more? If so, please stay tuned for our next blog.
