December can be a difficult month for families with young and energetic children, because the cold weather often leaves you and your child stuck indoors with limited sources of entertainment. Here is a list of activities for children that we know to be fun and enjoyable for the whole family during the winter months.
1. Build a snowman. If you live in an area that gets snowfall in December, take advantage of it and build a snowman with the family. You can also decorate the snowman together. Get your child’s input on what he or she thinks the snowman should wear, and even be named.
2. Make ornaments for your Christmas tree. If you celebrate Christmas, making ornaments for your tree is a good family project that children enjoy. Many families save hand-made ornaments for years.
3. Decorate a gingerbread house. Decorating a gingerbread house is a festive and delicious way to celebrate the holiday season. Your child will love being creative and decorating a house, or you can decorate one together as a family.
4. Ice skating is an activity that you can enjoy no matter what climate you live in. Many warmer climate cities have indoor ice-skating rinks and may offer lessons for preschoolers. Ice-skating is fun and is great exercise for the whole family.
5. Build an indoor obstacle course. If the December weather is too cold for your child to be outdoors, you can build an indoor obstacle course that will allow your child to burn off some energy while having fun.
