Brighten up your Winter days with these fun winter activities you can enjoy with the kids. It can be tempting to rug up, stay indoors and binge a series on Netflix while the kids stay glued to their phones or computers. These winter activities will surely get some much-needed off-screen time without breaking the bank.
It may be cold but don’t let that stop you and the kids from getting some outdoor fun and soaking in some Vitamin D. After all, it's important to get some fresh air and to boost those vitamin D levels.
Some outdoor winter activities can include:
Put on your coat, beanie, and boots and explore some trails. It will be a nice contrast from what it would normally look like during the summer.
Don’t let the cooler weather discourage you from enjoying a nice day out at the park. Heat up some hot chocolate, throw it in a thermostat and pack your favourite snacks. You’ll find that you’ll most likely have the playground to yourself as most people will be stuck indoors. This is also a good opportunity to bring along a soccer ball or basketball to play with the kids, or even fly a kite!
Don’t let your playset or swing sets feel left out during the winter months. There’s almost never a bad time to make use of your outdoor play equipment. You could even set up a safe bonfire to roast some marshmallows while enjoying a hot beverage.
If you decide that you want to stay indoors, there’s plenty of activities to do if you find it too cold outside.
Some fun indoor winter activities are:
Put on your creative hats and get crafty. Start by making some paper snowflakes. These snowflake garlands are the perfect craft activity for the kids to do before hanging them around their room.
There’s a bunch of winter-themed games you can do indoors but here are our favourites..
Based on the classic ‘Pin the tail on the donkey’ game, kids will love this reimagined winter-inspired trampoline activity. As they’re blindfolded and spun around before attempting to stick the ‘carrot nose’ on the cardboard snowman, you’ll be thankful that they have a safe, bouncy surface to land on if they take a tumble!
Well, not exactly snowballs since we live in Australia, but why not get some clean socks and roll them up in a ball.
Getting your kids involved while you make some delicious treats is always a great way to bond with your child.
Have them do some kid-friendly prepping and if there’s ever an opportunity to mix all the ingredients together, make sure you put them in charge.
Bake some smore cookies or delicious brownies and enjoy them all together once they are ready!
Here are some bonus winter activities if you own a Vuly product! We like to make sure our outdoor play equipment is used all year round, even during the cold winter days and nights.
All you need in your backyard is a Vuly trampoline for the perfect camp-out. A night of stargazing on your trampoline will be just as much fun for the kids as a trip to a camping ground.
Attach the Tent Bundle to your Vuly Trampoline, and pile it on with family or friends!
A Vuly trampoline is already super comfortable. So, no special swags or weatherproof gear is required – just take the blankets and pillows from your bed and there will be enough space inside for you and the kids to sleep together.
Set up some fairy lights, add on your Vuly LED Light and you’ve just turned your Vuly into one big, bouncy soft bed!
We can promise you that you will be kept snug and warm all night long. Not many meek camping tents can say that!
