Indoor Activities for Families To Get Through Winter

Indoor Activities for Families To Get Through Winter

Midwest winters can be extremely hard on families and children. The harsh temperatures don’t allow for a lot of outdoor activities, which can lead to families being less active. However, there are some great solutions all over the place! Take a look at some fun indoor activities for families to help you get through the frigid winter months.

Indoor Activities for Families To Get Through Winter

Ice Skating

An obvious, yet fun activity in the winter is ice skating. Not only are there indoor ice skating rinks all over the place, but ice skating is also extremely affordable. If you’ve never been ice skating and you aren’t afraid to try something new, then this is the perfect activity for you! Most people that go ice skating aren’t there because they are good, they are typically on a date, or to enjoy time with their friends or family. This is a classic winter activity that you won’t want to miss out on!

Movie Theater

With winter comes so many winter-themed movies! Just this year we saw movies such as Spirited, A Christmas Story Christmas, and so many more hit theaters. These huge blockbuster hits attract people of all ages. Movies are a great way for a family to spend time together and stay safe from the winter weather. After all, some of the best bonding is done through popcorn! On top of blockbuster hits, movie theaters offer heated, comfortable seats, and many DELICIOUS food options.

If you are looking for a more studious family activity, then a museum might be the best place for you and your kids. Museums offer interactive exhibits, guided tours, and lots of learning. Places like the Children’s Museum offer family fun and learning for an extremely affordable price. In fact, the Omaha Children’s Museum is one of the biggest family entertainment centers in the Omaha Metro Area seeing thousands of people every day!

Local activities and family fun aren’t ever that far away. All you have to do is look at your local library events listing! You will see loads of events for people of all ages to enjoy every week. Events range from dance parties, learning STEM skills, and sometimes author’s visits to read and sign books! These events can offer loads of fun for little to no money at all. Visiting your local library is also a great way to introduce your children to the importance of reading and writing.


Trampoline Parks

If you are looking to blow off some steam, then look no further! Trampoline parks are the perfect place to take your kids to run, bounce, and flip off their loads of pent-up energy. Trampoline parks offer a variety of activities such as arcades, obstacle courses, and of course trampolines. Lastly, trampoline parks are also proven to be great for aerobic exercise and building bone density in youth. Let the sitting around come to an end, and let the good times begin!
