Have you ever been bored in the winter when it was too cold to do anything outside? These are things to do when you’re bored in the winter.

First are the top three things to do outside of your house, but still inside a place, which include Skyzone, The American Dream Mall, or Iplay America.

Second are the top three things to do inside of your house. Some good things are to play board games, invite some friends over, or bake. Some new board games are Ticket to Ride, Exploding Kittens, and Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza.

Third are the top three things to do outside in the winter when it is cold outside. Of course you could do the normal things like build a snowman or have a snowball fight, but you can also play snow tag, go  sledding  and add a ramp at the end, or make a drawing with snow dye.

Next are projects can you start in the winter.  If you have a hobby you’re interested in or a hobby that you want to start, winter is the perfect time to start. You can create a collection of something or build something. An example of a collection would be collecting Legos and building something that would normally take you a lot of time.

Fifth, if you’re trying to entertain little kids there are some good indoor games you could play. Some good games include setting up a fort and playing Mailman or The Floor is Lava. Mailman is where everyone sleeps in the fort and one person goes and gets mail for everyone when they wake up. The Floor is Lava involves getting around the house without touching the floor.

Lastly, it’s important to get a good amount of exercise, even if you’re stuck inside. You can use any exercise equipment in your house or a gym. Also you can use an exercise app such as Nike Training Club and Peloton. 

Don’t get cabin fever this winter; there’s plenty you can do, so think about these suggestions the next time you’re feeling bored.
