Indoor Camp Out
When was the last time that you build a fort in the house? Ask any adult and they will probably have a few memories of their own to share about some super cool structures that they built during their childhood. And you don’t need much to take part in this time honored tradition. Gather as many bed sheets, blandest and other textiles that you are able to spare and let your kid’s imagination do the rest. Setting up around a furniture filled are like a living room or den can give then a better starting point. Have the whole family or maybe just the kids spend the night in the fort to mimic a traditional camp out!

Hot Cocoa Movie Night
Pick a family friendly film to screen in your home and cozy up on the couch with your little ones! To make the night stand out from just any ole’ family movie night prepare warm and delicious seasonal treat that everyone will enjoy – Hot Cocoa! This time around put your skills in the kitchen to the test by foregoing the usual powdered filled packets to make a rich and unique homemade cup of cocoa. If you find a recipe that you really like, you might consider making this into a family tradition to revisit during the winter.

Art and Crafts Time
Nothing quite keeps kids occupied the way that interactive crafts and DIY projects can. If the weather has you locked down and indoors, plan for a night of crafts with your little ones and their friends, if possible. Art related projects allow your kids to express themselves in new and creative ways. Not to mention, when all is said and done, you’ll be equipped with a few great keepsakes to commemorate your kids’ younger years. Crafts can also double as seasonal décor for your home.

Game Night

Invite friends over to make a larger scale competition and pair families against families for the chance to be the ultimate Game Night champion.
