Indoor winter activities the whole family can enjoy


Got cabin fever? You’re not alone. Being stuck indoors all winter long is such a buzzkill. Instead of going stir crazy, channel your inner creativity and try out these indoor winter activities to do with your kids.

1. Make a snowman suncatcher. Print out a suncatcher snowman craft template onto heavy cardstock. Cut out the snowman template. Then, cut out a piece of clear contact paper. Stick the front side of the snowman onto the contact paper. Remove the excess contact paper.

Cut out the eyes, nose and button templates. Trace them onto coloured constructi­on paper and cut out and place them on the snowman. Cut small squares out of white tissue paper. Place them on the inside of the snowman, making sure to completely cover the contact paper. Hang in the window to catch the sun.

2. Host a living room campout. Grab chairs from the kitchen, sheets from the linen closet and comfy blankets, pillows, throws and stuffed friends from the bedroom to build your fort. Next, bundle fairy lights inside Mason jars so when you turn off the lights it looks magical.
