Does bad weather have you and your kids climbing the walls? We’ve been dealing with unusually cold weather down here in the South and staying inside with all four children has been…a challenge. So I started looking around for some awesome cabin fever activities for kids we could try.
We’ve already shared some of these with the kids and they are loving them all! We’re going to see how many we can actually use this year. And if the weather keeps being cruddy, we’ll probably end up needing them all!
I hope these help you and your little ones make it through until spring! But these would also be good for sick days or days when you’re stuck at home with no transportation. (We’ve been there too.)
