When you’re fresh out of ideas for new and engaging activities that will keep your kids occupied, we all know that Pinterest can be your best friend. With no shortage of winter crafts and sensory activities, you can be scrolling for hours on end and so to make things easier, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites for you to try this year.
Make your own cozy Winter Wonderland fort!
When it’s too cold to enjoy the winter wonderland in your backyard, you can make your own in the comforts of your home (preferably near the fireplace)!
Here’s what we’re including in our winter wonderland fort:
- LOTS of pillows and blankets for maximum coziness
- DIY snowflakes and snowballs to really set the scene
- Firefly lights for that ambient lighting that makes us feel oh-so-cozy
- A warm cup of cocoa for you and the kiddos
- Our coziest & cutest winter pajamas (the Long Sleeve Jammies couldn’t be more perfect for the occasion)
Now all that’s left to do is snuggle up with your little ones, and enjoy the cozy vibes all day long!

Get creative with an indoor obstacle course
Give your kids a chance to get their sillies out without breaking the bank. Get creative and set up an indoor obstacle course with things you already have laying around the house.
Use that roll of painter’s tape to create an elaborate hopscotch pattern for the little ones to skip around in. Pretend you are super secret spies with a “laser” web made out of the yarn from that knitting project you never finished. Pull out the hula hoops and the jump ropes that are reminiscent of warmer days in the summertime.
Whatever you end up doing, your kids are bound to have a blast jumping and wiggling around your home.
