As the daylight hours shorten and the weather gets colder, it can become increasingly more difficult for your entire family to enjoy winter (especially when it can seem to last forever!). The change of season signals less time children play outside and more time indoors, which can add pressure to parents. Unfortunately, many of the go-to indoor activities are watching TV or playing video games. While fun in moderation, being cooped up in the house can make you and your children go nuts! Here are five tips and activities to help you and your family enjoy winter:
2. Museums and Other Indoor Activities: Get out of the house but still stay warm with other indoor activities like museums, aquariums, and cultural performances. Many of the museums offer free or reduced price days. Check out the four free days at Natural History Museum of Utah, free weekly art activities at BYU’s Museum of Art, and the Clark Planetarium has many free exhibits. Many of these attractions offer a way for children to explore and learn something new while staying out of the cold!
