Winter is quickly making its way to the northern hemisphere, and the CDC advises us to follow the social distancing guidelines. So what can you and your family do to prevent getting cabin fever? Well, there are plenty of options to explore both inside and outside of your home.

I’ve put together a list hopefully containing some fresh ideas to keep you entertained while also keeping you safe. Some things to keep in mind this season while you are having fun: remain the appropriate distance away from people when you are in public, wear a mask even if you are vaccinated, and when travelling or planning to be outside make sure you dress accordingly and drive safely. Most importantly, have a great time and make memories with the ones who matter. Here are some ideas to try out with your family!

Create your own board game

Who doesn’t love playing board games? Instead of reaching into your closet for that box of Monopoly, you can have more fun and express your imagination by making up your own game!

Build a fort and camp out in the living room.

The kids will especially enjoy this one, but it can be fun for adults as well. Pick a movie, make a bag of popcorn, and throw some blankets over your couch! Putting a fort together will spark the inner child in you!

Stay in your PJs all day and relax.

During a snow day, allow yourself to be a kid again! Stay in your pyjamas for the day and have some fun. Watch a bunch of movies with your family. Play some video games together, or read a book. To make the day complete, order your favourite take-out for dinner!

Cook a family meal together.

Choose something everyone can take part in. Some ideas you could make are pizzas, soups, tacos, stir-fries, or many more! Make it your own unique way, and let the kids contribute by choosing ingredients. Follow-up with a tasty dessert!
