The holiday season is over and the unseasonable warm weather is gone. The dreaded cold and dreary days are settling in along with my post holiday doldrums and yet my three and five year old are continuing to look to me for entertainment. The truth is I’m tired and cold and would rather hang out at home and drink warm coffee merrily while they play with the ridiculous amount of toys they just received.
While this might work for some time it does not work for long. Luckily, in the last few years I have learned a few fun and different ways to escape winter boredom without spending a ton of money or being overstimulated at the Magic House day in and day out. These are some of our favorite ways to force ourselves out when our first inclination would be stay in the comfort of our own home.
