Things to Do Inside During the Winter

So the winter months are closing in, it is getting colder and the daylight is gone by early evening time. Even though the daylight hours get shorter, the winter days can often seem longer as you try to find things to do in the house. You look out the window and the rain is lashing down, and the wind chill is extreme, so you do not want to venture outside at all.

Fortunately there are plenty of things that you can do to keep you busy and occupied during these bleak days, and they do not all have to involve watching the TV. But technology can certainly play its part in keeping you busy. If you like to play games, then there are many online games that you can play now, a lot of them for free as well.

If you have kids, then this opens up a world of new opportunities for you. You can teach them how to bake cakes, kids always love to get involved in doing that. You can do some art and crafts, as this is also something that they like to do. Try and make some smaller cakes and get your child really involved so they get a sense of accomplishment once they are finished too.

Painting (using water colors) is another thing that children like to partake in. Make sure you cover all the surfaces and be prepared for cleaning up some mess afterwards, but it certainly can be a lot of fun for you both. Try and get some paint by numbers books so that they have something specific that they can paint.
