Outdoor Winter Fun with Kids
Play in the Snow
Take advantage of that snow and find a hill! Local parks are usually a great place to sled. Don’t forget to dress warmly and bring helmets! Don’t forget to make snow angels and build a snowman!
These are a few places to sled in Colorado Springs.
Go Skiing or Snowboarding
Skiing can be a fun family activity. Even if everyone can’t ski, there are usually other activities for the rest of the family to enjoy.
These tips for planning a ski trip with kids will make things go smoothly.
Go Ice Skating
In Colorado Springs, we have an outdoor rink that is only open during the winter. We try to go every year!
Take a Winter Vacation or a Long Weekend
Snow tubing, snowmobiling, and exploring ice castles are just a few ideas. Here in Colorado, you could check out Snow Mountain Ranch or Winter Park. Just make sure to have the right gear for a snow trip.
Indoor Winter Fun with Kids
Make Snow Crafts
Snowflake Craft These snowflakes are cut out from your child’s name!
Build a Sensory Snowman with Fake Snow This sensory activity is great for younger kids!
Snow Cloud Dough This cloud dough is quick to make and will help entertain the kids on those cold winter days!
Check Out Indoor Activities
If the weather isn’t nice outdoors, check out fun indoor places in your area. We like to roller skate, swim, and jump on trampolines. It’s also a great chance to check out local museums or head to your library!
Have a PJ Day
Too cold to go out? Stay in and build a blanket fort, have some hot chocolate or watch a movie! It’s also a great time for a family game night.
