Life made simple.

Mom, We’re BORED!!! How to Keep Kids Busy In Winter.

Cook or Bake Something

Find the easiest scone, biscuit or flapjack recipe. Use the ready-made kit-form ones if you like. Let the kids help– make sure they actually learn it if possible, so next time there’s less supervision necessary! Here are some easy ones.

Make a Family Tree Poster

Print out photographs of family members and paste them onto the branches of a tree – on a poster sized sheet of paper. Here are some ideas. Use crayons, paint, glitter, dried leaves, any kind of decoration that brings the family tree to life.

Camp in the Living Room

It might be too cold to do it outside, so make a camp spot in the living room. Use sheets if you don’t have a tent, and have camp-style hotdogs for lunch or supper. Sleep in the tent!

Build with Boxes

Using cardboard boxes of all shapes and sizes, build a castle, a wendy house, a car, a boat. Decorate it or leave it rough – the fun is in the construction – and the playtime when it’s built. Here’s an idea.

Use crayons, paint, glitter, dried leaves, any kind of decoration that brings the family tree to life.

Make your own comic strip stories

Using a few real comic books or strips as inspiration, let the kids make their own comics. Print out a template – or just a page with a three squares across and four squares down. Give them characters to copy or trace, and a storyline to inspire them. Here are some ideas.

Sew your own tree decorations

It’s never too early to get kids excited about Santa. So tell them it’s ‘just around the corner’, give them a box of ribbons, cardboard, wool, felt, sequins, buttons, and any colourful bits that have potential for the tree. Make it a competition. Prizes for the most charming, not necessarily the most skillful decorations! Here are some ideas.
