Winter is a time when fuzzy socks, fluffy blankets, and hot chocolate drinks are common. It’s the perfect time to cuddle up with your loved ones under one blanket and watch holiday movies while sipping on hot cocoa. Winter makes kids happy because of the break they get from school, days spent sleeping in, and the best part of it — snow! Making snow angels, skiing, sledding, and building a snowman are just a few things you can do when it starts to snow, and kids love it. But during this pandemic, all of that is not possible. However, there is no need to be disheartened because here are 9 ways to spend winter holidays with your kids and make it fun:
