Cabin Fever Musts

When it comes to cold weather, staying inside seems like the best option when littles are present…especially newborns. The weather has been unbelievably cold in Ohio this winter and leaving the house just isn’t doable…nor am I excited to do so. I would have to get 3 kids bundled tightly, spend 30 minutes loading them into the car and getting them buckled into their carseats, etc. In other words, no thank you! LOL

Since leaving when it is so cold is out of the question, we have hunkered down and made “cabin fever” more of a challenge to conquer in our household. Here are some things we hav done to “entertain” the boredom that can sometimes come with cabin fever.

  1. Play board games
  2. Break out the Play-Doh
  3. Bake cookies
  4. Put the bounce house in the basement and let the kids jump
  5. Bring snow into the house and experiment with it (make mini snowmen, use food coloring to mix primary colors to see which contrary colors are created.
  6. Make crafts
  7. Play Hide-and-go-Seek
  8. Make blanket forts
  9. Play Barbies and Dolls
  10. Clean-Clean out toy bins, dresser drawers, etc.
