The colder months have finally arrived, so it’s important to keep your little ones entertained even when it’s cold and rainy outside! We’ve rounded up some of our favourite winter activities that you can do with your little ones - no matter how old they are. From outdoor activities to craft making inside, BrightMinds has a wide range of toys and activities to support these fun winter activities for kids! Let’s get into them…
Bird Watching In The Winter Months
Bird watching can be a great experience for children of all ages! In the UK, a number of birds including starlings, robins and goldfinches love to come out during the winter months. Not only is this a great experience for children, but birdwatching helps them to understand more about the natural world around them. For little ones who take a liking to bird watching, you can shop BrightMinds Window Bird Feeder or Build Your Own Bird Feeder.
Have Fun Baking With Your Children
One of the best winter activities for kids is baking! There’s nothing better than working together as a family to bake a delicious cake from scratch and watch the final result rise in the oven - not to mention delicious cake for the rest of the week. Help your little one to feel like a real chef with BrightMinds’ range of baking books, specifically designed for children!
Children’s Arts & Crafts For Rainy Days
Sometimes throughout the winter there’s no choice but to stay in, away from the cold, wet weather. Arts and crafts are a great way to keep the little ones entertained while indoors all day! From painting to craft making, bead threading to collage making, there are endless possibilities when it comes to arts and crafts. If you need some inspiration, shop BrightMinds extensive range today - the Pressed Flower Art Kit is our personal favourite!
Muddy Winter Walks With The Family
Sometimes we just have to brave the bad weather! Getting out and walking in nature is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air - while all of the muddy puddles are extremely entertaining for little ones. While out and about, try to spot some of the local wildlife in your area - this can be a great way to teach little ones about the natural world around them! Why not make exploring one of the best winter activities and invest in a pair of Kidnoculars to help your little ones spot owls, deer, foxes and more local wildlife!
Children’s Dress Up & Role Play Activities
A rainy winters day can be the perfect time to get the fancy dress box out of the cupboard! Children’s imagination is endless - just giving them a great costume can leave them playing in imagery scenarios for hours on end! If your fancy dress box is in need of some TLC, you can shop BrightMinds’ range of children’s dress-up costumes today!
DIY Home Experiments
We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t tried the bottle of coke and mint trick at home. Usually, you can find a variety of things around the house that can be used to make a DIY experiment! From creating your own volcano with baking soda to making a homemade lava lamp, the possibilities are endless! When your little scientists are ready to take the next step, you can shop BrightMinds extensive range of science experiments including the 4M Great Gizmo Volcano Making Kit, Galt Toys Science Lab and Natural History Museum Crystal Science!
