It’s fall, and the weather is becoming colder and darker. Chances are you are making your home more comfortable at the same time. Over the fall and winter months, you are going to spend more time indoors with the kids, so make sure you have plenty of entertainment to offer them.
Board games don’t have to be boring; although modern children prefer to sit in front of a screen for hours playing video games or watching animations, board games can still engage their interest. Make a deal with them and try to peel them away from their devices for a short time.
Some of the best board games are the simplest, consider ludo, Cluedo, and checkers, but you don’t have to limit yourself to the classics; why not bring down some modern games that you can find online or in stores? Modern board games can be fun, challenging, and entertaining.
What could be better than settling down as a family to watch a classic movie together on a rainy and cold fall day? Buy in some popcorn and snacks, make the room cozy and warm and watch a movie you love. Since it’s fall, you might want to watch a seasonal movie like Hocus Pocus.
Nowadays, there are several ways to watch classic movies, you could spend some money and rent them from a streaming website, or your could plan ahead and download them for free. The best way to watch classic movies is to find top movie torrenting sites and get free downloads.
Halloween is around the corner, and the winter weather is coming in, which means you can expect to spend some wintry weekends in the house with the kids. It also means you are best placed to carve some spooky pumpkins. This is an enjoyable and seasonal family activity.
Make sure you buy your pumpkins early to get the best quality pumpkins. After a few weeks, all the good ones disappear, and you’re left with ones that are misshapen and poor quality. For best results, you will also need a pumpkin carving tool which you can usually find in the stores.
Again, you need some ways to peel your kids away from their screens on a wet weekend. If you make a deal with them to have some story time and then some screen time, you might be able to create a window in which you can convince them to use their imaginations traditionally.
Choose a short seasonal story to tell, something like “The Hook,” and create a spooky atmosphere; you might want to build a spooky reading corner for this activity. When you read the story, get into character and be as theatrical as your can to outcompete the video games.
Card games are another classic way to play with your kids on a wet weekend. Card games are simple and timeless; not only are they fun to play, but they are also useful for your kids to know as they grow up. Card games are the perfect mode of entertainment at home or when traveling.
