Roundup: Activities for Young Children in the Cold Weather

December 10, 2013


Trapped Indoors? Activities for Young Children in the Cold Weather        

Baby, it’s cold outside. Your kids have been cooped up indoors. They have been making so much noise around the apartment that your downstairs neighbors are beginning to wonder if you are operating an acrobatic class or dance studio up there. Here are some indoor activities, to ease the difficulties, of what my family refers to as, “house rot”:

For kids that like to create

For kids that like to move

For kids that like to scroll

And finally here are some links to indoor places to play in NYC:

Rainy Day Activity guide Via Mommy Poppins

Williamsburg/Greenpoint Area:

NY Kids Club will open sometime in January 

*also don't forget McCarren Play Center offers a few classes during the week for tots and if you have a membership kids 17 and under are free. 

Hope you and your family stay warm and somewhat sane this winter season. Thanks as always for reading. Till the next post, take care.
