Winter Fun Ideas

It appears that winter is here already.  It's freezing and windy here today.  So I thought I'd blog about some fun things to do in the winter.  Sometimes in the winter, boredom sets in and can make kids whiny.  "What can I do?"  I hear it a lot in the colder months.  And when you homeschool, you are likely to hear it more because you are with your kids more.   Anyway,  I have been digging around the internet to find some ideas.  Here are some links I came up with.

Paper Snowflakes

This one has some fun stuff to do in the winter.  I like the idea of a popcorn, hot chocolate and game night.

Making pine cone bird feeders is a fun thing to do in the winter. Apparently using peanut butter on the pine cones is not a good idea. I've seen some people saying it chokes the birds and can kill them.  Here's a better, healthier for the birds, way to do it.

This Frosty the Cheeseball recipe looks fun and tasty.

Winter Crafts

What are your favorite things to do with the kids in the winter?


  1. I break out the paint brushes and paint. Macaroni art is always fun too and ther always seems to be some here.

    Have fun!

  2. I don't have kids, but I'm still a huge fan of Hot Chocolate and Popcorn!

  3. Great list! I love the pine cone idea, I am going to have to give that a try.
