Winter Activities and Science Experiments for Kids

We have had a lot of fun with all of these Winter activities. They all use common supplies found in your local stores. They are all pretty inexpensive with many of the materials able to be re-used for other projects. They are also easy to do at home or at school with a single child or a group of children. Themed learning activities are a fun way to take a regular activity and make it completely new again.

What makes a good Winter activity or science experiment? You! Create new ways to play and learn with simple supplies. Ask questions, encourage curiosity, and spend time playing! I find even adults enjoy these Winter activities too. They are also great ideas for setting up independent play time for the older child. My son can happily spend 45 minutes melting a block of ice on his own, but mom has to give it a try too!

We hope you find NEW Winter Activities for indoor play!
