Winter doesn’t have to mean boring. Because it’s too cold for your children to play outside or they’re just about frozen because they’ve been out too long doesn’t end the excitement. Just pull out Mother 2 Mother’s winter activities. We’re developing a series of winter activities for preschoolers and up. Our games will be a nice change from normal indoor games like Monopoly, Uno and the list goes on.
Our Winter Word Search game and our Winter Craft Ideas will keep them busy for hours. Associating words with winter can be fun and can occupy your kids for some time. Pop a bowl of popcorn or serve their favorite hot chocolate drink. Top off the hot chocolate off with creamy marshmallows or this delicious whipped cream star. Additionally, you can print off several copies and play as a family. It’s also the perfect game to play when it’s snowing and the wind is howling.
For example, play in teams. Give each team member the game and set a time limit in which they have to find the word. There’s educational value in the hunt too. Use the word search game to enhance vocabulary words and spelling challenges. There are 24 words in the puzzle. So be sure the kids find all of the words to complete the puzzle. Word search games also enhance problem solving skills.
Most importantly, word search helps with creative thinking skills. Creative thinking requires us to look at problems in different ways. When searching for words, you must look forward, diagonal, up, down, and backwards to find words. Creative thinking includes using and looking at idea differently. Playing the game in team with a time limit is a unique and creative way to play the game.
Another way to use the game is to have your child challenge themselves. Have them set a time limit and go against the clock. If they’re not successful, they can set the timer again. Be creative. Just have fun. Download the game here. You may also like African American Inventors and Inventions Game.
