At this time of year, nobody ever wants to go outside or do anything. Sure, when the snow hits, it can be quite fun to explore for a little while. But when we’re graced with rainy, windy, and drizzly days, the very last thing we want to do is venture out. But this can mean that your children start to go a little stir crazy. Because there’s only ever so much that you can do indoors. So, you might want to pre-plan for this, so that you are stressed out when you’re stuck indoors for days on end.
Instead, you might want to think about how you can all hibernate a little, and actually have some fun with it. Let’s take a look at some cozy ideas to help you here.
Cozy On Down
First of all, you’re going to want to make sure that you focus on getting cosy. And yes, this does mean that you will want to set the mood around the home. First of all, you’re going to want to make sure that you have ready to burn logs at the go if you have a fire. Because this makes hibernating so much more cozy. But not only that, you might want to nestle up on the sofa, and make sure that you have blankets and throws and cushions at the ready.
Make The Home A Little Cosier
As a step on from that, you might want to go around and decorate the home too. Because if you’re going to be spending a lot of time inside, it may as well look nice and autumnal or wintery too. So place candles around and look to bring out your autumnal and wintery designed bits and bobs.
When everyone is on the verge of going a little stir crazy, one of the very best things you can do it turn to crafts. There are so many different quick and easy crafts that you could all have fun with. And you can definitely tailor them for this time of year. Maybe you want to make Christmas decorations. Or you like the idea of knitting and sewing different patterns. When you’re stuck inside, it’s the perfect time of year to try out different creative things with the children.
Have Winter Warmer Days
And, of course, you might want to have a day where you just don’t do anything at all. Where you put on your cosiest clothes or even stay in your pyjamas and you just enjoy being at home and comfortable. Heaven!
Have Movie Nights
But then also, you could look to enjoy movie nights too. Perhaps you like the idea of staying in your pyjamas and then cosying up in the afternoon to watch movie after movie? This could then help you to have that much needed quiet time before bed, and before you read stories, to help with your sleep routine. Plus, it’s such a lovely wintertime activity to do too.
