In wintertime, when children can get "cabin fever," one way to keep them occupied is by doing something unexpected—such as celebrating the cold weather with an indoor picnic featuring games and food that the whole family can enjoy.
Possibilities for children's indoor picnics are as endless as your imagination. Here are some ideas:
Picnic at the "Beach"
Attire: Bathing suits and sandals
Teddy Bear Picnic
Attire: Kids and teddy bears wear their fanciest clothes
Attire: Children's hiking attire and gear
Indoor Picnic Games
Carton Catch: Cut off the top four inches of milk cartons to transform them into scoops. Have kids play catch using the scoops and beanbags.
Indoor mini-golf: Set up a "golf" course using beanbags as a "golf ball" and with small plastic waste baskets, pillows and empty cartons as targets. Kids play the course by standing a certain distance from the targets and collecting points each time they get a beanbag into the target.
Bye-Bye Bubbles: At the end of the picnic, give kids a container of blowing-bubbles or bubble bath to play with in the bathtub.
