Are you going stir crazy inside? I’m so excited to reveal a collection of indoor activities for kids during winter.
From homemade snow to handprint art, there is so much to do in your home during the winter. Many people are bundling up to head outdoors in the cold, but my asthma keeps me inside. I thought it would be fun to share some of the awesome activities for kids during winter. These ideas are also great winter activities for kids during Covid. Here’s to making the best of being stuck indoors!
10 Indoor Activities for Families During Covid
- Family Game Night – Everyone picks a snack to share!
- At Home Spa Day – Makeovers for the whole family with a fashion show and photoshoot
- Cupcake Wars or a Bake-Off – “Who can make the best chocolate chip cookies?”
- Scavenger Hunt with a prize for the team that finishes first

Tip: Pick up an DIY ART KIT from a local shop!
My daughters loved creating a Valentine’s Day craft from Painted by the Shore last Valentine’s Day. Check your local Art Shops for DIY Art Kits. We have two wonderful places in town called SPLAT and Catalyst Art Studio. Another fun idea is to call a local bakery to ask if they offer DIY Decorate Your Own Cookie Kits.
