kids party says
In Winter time we as a family tend to actually do alot of baking together. Things that can involve the little ones like cupcake making and similar things like that. They especially love decorating them afterwards. I guess we just arent an outdoors type family, but we just enjoy spending time in the house together when its chilly outside.
My kids are out of the toddler phase so this idea isn’t too dangerous: I let them paint in our unfinished part of the basement. I get our the washable kids paint and let them go to town, they think this is the most fabulous treat!
