Hot Cocoa Station

After coming inside from a cold day of play, what’s better than having hot cocoa to warm you up? Set up a hot cocoa station for your kids to enjoy. They can have their own mugs and even add their own fixings. A few examples are different colored marshmallows, nutmeg, a candy cane to put in it, and even cinnamon. It’s hard to go wrong with this little winter treat.

Build (or make) a Snowman

In some parts of the country it’s still snowing! If there’s snow where you’re at why not build a snowman? You don’t have to build one, you could make a snow dog, dragon, or anything your heart desires! The possibilities are endless. If you don’t have snow you can make a snowman out of materials around the house. You can draw one, or make on a giant poster board and cut it out. After that, you can pin your new friend in the window or the wall to admire until warmer weather comes in.

Ice Skating

Maybe you want to get a little colder? It’s usually not hard to find an indoor ice skating rink. If your children are looking to do something a little different why not try this activity? The entire family can enjoy it, but it may be difficult to master for some younger children.

Cut out Snowflakes

Even if Christmas has passed, you can still have fun with the cold season. There are plenty of ways to have fun with paper indoors. Teach your child how to cut out paper snowflakes. The possibilities are endless, and they can even decorate them if they want to. After the snowflakes are made you can hang them around the house or on the wall for you and your children to admire. So a little bit of the Christmas spirit still lingers in the New Year.

Read a Book

Still want to stay cozy? Read a book with your child. There are many books that have Christmas themes, or take place in winter. So snuggle up on the couch and read them a couple if you want. Even if you don’t want to read books about snow, you more than free to read some other books.
