While we’re big fans of getting outside in the winter to take part in some of the season’s best activities—ice skating, tobogganing and skiing, to name a few—some days it’s just as fun to stay inside and enjoy an afternoon of indoor fun. From settling in with a favourite board game to giving your junior chef some cooking lessons, there are plenty of great ways to keep your kiddos occupied while they spend the afternoon hiding from Jack Frost. Here are 10 fun and easy ideas for whiling away an afternoon indoors.
Looking for another way to keep your kiddos occupied for an afternoon? We’ve got two great picks from MoMA to give away! The MoMA Modern Kids Color-Play puzzle ($15, Chronicle Books, Ages 4 and up) has a fun two-sided design that lets kids mix and match bright colours and familiar objects in various patterns for hours of creative play. We also love the Play Town set by Laura Ljungkvist for MoMA ($25, Chronicle Books, Ages 5 and up), which features colourful punch-out structures that allow kids to build eight different buildings to create their own little city. The 31-piece set also includes punch-out signs, roads, and even a little park. We’re giving both items away to one lucky CF reader! To enter for your chance to win, leave a comment and tell us: what’s your family’s favourite board game?
This giveaway closes at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, February 14. You’ll find full rules and regulations here. Good luck!
