While the halfway point of winter has officially passed, the remainder of the cold season still looms ahead, and you might be wondering what you can do to keep your family busy until the sunshine returns! If you have kids, winter can be difficult, because the frosty weather makes outdoor activities less appealing, but it doesn’t stop hyperactivity and boredom from setting in. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of three great things that you can do with the family this winter.
1. Get your skates on
Rollerskating and ice-skating are great winter activities, because most cities have indoor rinks, and strapping on some skates is a great way to burn excess energy and stay fit and healthy. Most people eat more and spend more time indoors during the winter, so making a visit to your local ice skating or roller skating centre will get you moving and release some of those great endorphins you’ve all been missing!
2. Visit the museum
If your family have inquisitive minds, the museum is a great place to spend a chilly day. The displays usually range from dinosaurs to historical artefacts, to animal and plant specimens. And museums aren’t just for kids. You might find yourself learning something too!
You don’t have to go outside to keep the family entertained. Why not transform your dining room into a craft centre and create your own ‘crafternoon’? You can source a variety of supplies such as collage materials, plasticine, cross-stitch and fabrics. Each member of your family can make an item that appeals to them, and foster their creative talents. At the end, why not do a little show and tell, where everyone can share what they have done?
As you can see, just because winter is still breathing her cold breath across the country, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. Make the most of the cooler months and try something different with your family today. Take a look at www.beewrappy.com.au for further suggestions.
