Winter Family Activities

Activities to enjoy with your kid during Winter season

When the weather gets cold and it is just more appealing to stay indoors you might be feeling like the activities for your family are limited. This isn’t the case, though.

There are lots of things you can do with your family, even when the weather isn’t perfect. Indoors or out, there’s no reason you shouldn’t enjoy time with your family this winter.

Game Night

When it’s snowing outside, there is almost nothing better than a family game night. You can make some hot chocolate and popcorn, and set up a board game. If you have little ones who are too young to enjoy most board games you can always pull out some floor puzzles that you can do together. Your children will enjoy spending the time with you, no matter what you do.


Many rinks in your community will host family skate days on the weekends. Since they are designed to be family oriented you can help your little ones who are just learning to skate and not have to worry about others knocking them over. Most often these afternoons are free, or very cheap to attend, and they’re held at indoor rinks so even if it’s absolutely freezing outside you can participate in a traditional winter activity without exposing yourselves to the elements.


Baby Flotation Therapy
Even though swimming is often a summer activity, you can still do it in the winter. Many community centers have indoor pools that are open for family-friendly swims and it’s a perfect way to spend a wintery afternoon with your little ones.

If your child is too small to really enjoy a traditional swimming pool you can explore an alternative like visiting Giggly Panda Baby Spa for hydrotherapy, which introduces babies to the water at an early age.

There are some trails that are maintained even in the winter, and it can be a perfect way to get the family out and stay active during the winter. Provided the weather isn’t too cold you can bundle up the family and hit the trails for a beautiful winter hike. As an interesting addition, you could even try snowshoes on some trails and it would be a fun way to try something new as a family.


There are numerous benefits to early literary with your children, so what better way to work on that then to read as a family? Some libraries hold events on weekend afternoons, which you could attend as a family. Reading to your children, or even having a quiet afternoon where each family member takes time reading their choice of book will help build literacy with your children and bond as a family.


There is almost nothing more traditional than tobogganing in the winter. With that fresh fallen snow, grab your sled and head to the nearest hill. This is an activity you can do as a family whether you’re going down the hill with your children or watching them slide down it’s a fun way to spend a winter afternoon. You can finish off this time with some hot chocolate and a cozy movie night at home!

Spending time with your family is important, no matter the weather. Finding activities you can do with your little ones in every weather will help ensure you get to spend as much time with your family as possible.
