11 Wicked Winter Weekend Activities

11 Winter Weekend Activities
Written by Rachel Cave


It’s a winter weekend, what shall we do?
Here are some great ideas for me and you,
From Crafts, Castles, bowling, sewing and more..
There is so much we can play and explore!

1. Find Wonderfully Wintery Spiderwebs

Go outdoors and find a frosty spiders web… then have a go at making your own using PVA glue and silver glitter!

2. Make Your Own Puppet Show

Why not have a go at making your very own puppet theatre? Better yet, use up your leftover Christmas cardboard to get super crafty and creative!

3. Make a Bird Feeder

Create a bird feeder using an empty yoghurt pot, lard and birdseed, and then take pictures of the birds as they feed in your garden! Have a read of our bird feeder tutorial for more inspiration.

4. Make Your Own Puzzle

Create your own puzzles for some family fun! Stick a family photo, or a child drawn picture, to card and cut it into shapes.

5. Go Bowling

As  a much loved and traditional family activity, bowling is the perfect place for some lighthearted competitive fun!

6. Explore a Castle

Go to a castle and be a knight. Don’t forget to make a shield out of card and foil before you go!

7. Create a Campfire

Embrace the winter chill and create a campfire and toast some marshmallows to keep warm!

8. Create Shell Pictures

Collect shells and create fun pictures on the beach, or in the forest with stones and twigs!

9. Learn to Sew

Teach your child to thread or sew! For younger children, use cardboard with holes punched in it and string as thread.

10. Go on a Scavenger Hunt

Take your little explorers on a scavenger hunt! Give children photos of things to find or set up written clues to help older children find items outside. Have a read of our Ultimate Guide to Scavenger Hunts for some extra tips.

11. Visit a Pottery Cafe

Get arty and visit a pottery café and create your very own masterpiece to take home!
