Try organizing a scavenger hunt to keep the kids occupied and working together for hours. You can set up the hunt in your home or somewhere else like the Brooklyn Children’s Museum to bring some new excitement to a place that you might have already visited.

You can also try planning an indoor camping trip. Children have such vivid imaginations that simply sleeping somewhere besides their own beds can transport them to a different world. Eat s’mores, sing campfire songs, stay up a little past your bedtime and create memories that will last them a lifetime!

#3 Date Night

You may not be able to visit another country but you can try their food! If you do decide to venture out into the cold, try something a little more exotic than your usual pizza spot. Take a look at this epic list from Thrillist of the best places to find every cuisine in NYC.
