Boredom Prevention for Your Kids This Winter

In case you haven’t been over to my social media in a bit, I am currently a contributor of the Westchester County Moms Blog (WCMB).  This is a site for local moms to get information about local events, services, advice, and just bond with other moms.  The site is very new but is growing quickly.  It is a part of a sisterhood of sites across the country.  That means that articles I write for the local site have the possibility of being published on any of the other sites across the nation.  This is super exciting and a great opportunity. An added bonus is that I get to bond and interact with other local mom bloggers.

My first post for WCMB was published yesterday.  It is a list of a bunch of activities you and your kids can do to help beat cabin fever this winter.  If you are in the northeast, it snowed last night, so this list couldn’t come at a better time.  While some of these activities include places to go, many of them are activities you can do right at home! Create a safari for your kids, do craft projects, or celebrate National popcorn day.

There are so many things to do at home that never seem to come to mind when you are actually looking for something to do. Once you are actually bored, your creativity seems to turn off and you can’t get out of it.  Save this list to refer to when you get bored. Or sign up to receive my list of even more activities to fight cabin fever right at the top of my sidebar.  Refer to it whenever you are stuck with nothing to do. You will thank me later!

Here is the link to my post on the Westchester County Moms Blog:

My daughter and several friends take turns once a week have playdates at their houses. Moms and kids love it. Every Thursdays is library story time and craft day.

We started talking our son to some indoor playgrounds (he’s 17 months old) – we have Gymboree Play & Music and a Recreation Unlimited that is GREAT when it’s cold out!!! We also have a great Children’s Museum in Indianapolis that is great for all aged kids (and adults!!).

We have a few indoor play areas in my town (a Gymboree & Recreation Unlimited) which are both GREAT for letting my little guy get his energy out. Plus, they’re pretty adult-friendly. I don’t feel like I have to hover, so it’s a win/win!! Our Indiana winters get pretty brutal so we’re always looking for good ideas!

Thanks for this! I don’t have kids, but I have a nephew that will visit me this winter, and this article is going to help me a lot!

I like these ideas! I’m going to keep these on hand…our first little one is due this summer, and we’ll need some ideas before too long!

I am a nanny to a toddler and we love going to a really cool, huge children’s library in Charlotte that also has exhibits and stuff. It’s free for the first 1.5 hours, which is awesome!
