Play Date Ideas For Bad Weather Days

Staying in doesn’t have to be all about screens.

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s tempting to hide inside and turn to movies or tech toys to wile away the hours. No need, though! Instead, invite a few friends over for a play date and a good time will be had by all, with just a little planning and organization.

Dealing with Cabin Fever

Even the best little friends will at some point be hit with cabin fever. Tired of being indoors, they’ll start fighting with one another. It’s hard to manage feuding kids, particularly when one or more of them are not your own, but it’s your house, so manage it you must.

Diversion tactics are the best way to de-escalate a fight: if they can’t agree on a game, compromise with a third option. If they can’t play in the fort without getting too rough, remind them that it can just as easily be put away as it was taken out. And if all else fails, have a DVD on hand or a movie lined up to stream. Because at some point, you’re going to need YOUR downtime too!

Play dates are the ideal way to keep kids busy and having fun, no matter what Mother Nature is up to outside!
