Winter vacation is filled with of the promise of fun and relaxation. But for many parents a question looms: How do you keep everyone entertained during all that free time?
Anticipating that challenge, we turned to Pinterest to find ideas that captivate kids, and give moms and dads a little breather.
Here are some of our favorites:
Paint the snow.
A great blend of art and outdoor play. Bonus? Fresh air encourages a good night’s sleep!
Make bird feeders.
Be sure to hang them near a window so kids can see their handiwork in action.
Design potato head snowmen.
Give those accessories new life – and your snowmen a fun twist!
Blow bubbles (and watch them freeze).
Because, how cool is that?
Create colored ice art.
So fun to create, and beautiful to look at all winter long.
Have a snow day dance party.
Turn the music up, and get down. It’s a great way to lift everyone’s spirits and burn off some energy.
