Wintertime is full of fun activities and memories for kids: making snowmen, sledding, spending time with the family. But, when the days start to get longer and the weather refuses to warm up, it can often lead to long days stuck indoors with nothing new to do. At Little Tikes, we want everyone to Play Big! indoors, outdoors, and everywhere in between. That’s why we’ve put together these four active play ideas for your family to try on cold days:
BUILD AN OBSTACLE COURSE FOR YOUR KIDS USING A LITTLE TIKES COZY COUPE AND OTHER HOUSEHOLD ITEMS. NOW RACE THROUGH IT!
One of the key components of Play Big! is getting up and doing something active. Try giving your kids different objects like cardboard boxes, cones, folding chairs, blankets, and tape and see what sort of obstacle course they can design in your playroom or basement. Building things like obstacle courses encourages kids to get up, get active, and get creative. There’s no right or wrong way to build and obstacle course, your kids just build one the way they want to!
Now that your kids have designed their obstacle course, break out your Cozy Coupe and have them race through it. They can have a timed race, a relay race, or even just see who can come up with the most original way to navigate through the obstacle course. Let your kids decide for themselves what the race is about, and watch as they get active and grow their imaginations.
