Banish "bored"

Activity ideas for snow days MORE+ LESS-

It's winter, the entire clan is trapped inside, and if you hear "I'm bored" one more time, you may run out and bury your head in a snow bank. Banish those words, once and for all, with these ideas for indoor fun.

  • Have a board game tournament. Pick four or five board games and set a timer for each match, such as 20 minutes.
  • Honour the snow with a "white" party. Prepare white foods like party mashed potatoes, crunchy chicken nuggets, bread, and vanilla pudding. Top things off with a Snowman Cake. Cut out paper snowflakes for placemats and hang fairy lights around your home.
  • Create an indoor campsite. All you need is a tent and sleeping bags. Tell spooky stories, play games such as Truth or Dare, and nosh on fun snacks. Warm toasted marshmallow s'more bars are a must.
  • Let your kids bake something fun and delicious, like this Giant Cookie with Ice Cream.
