50 winter activities for kids – Low cost or no cost 11

We have had a really mild winter this year in the UK and no snow yet for us all all.  I love how normally in the UK we have four distinct seasons and that we have regular activities that we do as a family to celebrate the seasons.  These 50 winter activities for kids are perfect for this time of year and are all pretty low cost or even no cost.

Each season I update our bored jar with new activities for the new season.  So I never hear the words I’m Bored from either of the boys.  I also fill our bored jar with a selection of chores too and these are perfect for anyone wanting to swap out activities for the winter season,
