It’s getting colder outside, kids are spending less time outdoors and more time being cooped up inside. You and your kids might be going a little stir crazy already!
We’ve put together a list of some Kenosha activities that will allow you to step out for a fun, winter activity-filled afternoon to keep those young brains active and bodies moving!
Ice skating at Memorial Park
A 32-foot by 60-foot ice rink is set up at Memorial Park every year! You may have to wait for it to be cold enough yet to hit the skating rink, but nothing beats this free adventure! Individuals can bring their own skates or check some out for free. Ice skating is the perfect activity to get kids outside while enjoying the snow and crisp cold weather.
Tubing, sledding, or downhill skiing at Wilmot Mountain
Wilmot Mountain is planning to open up on December 3, 2021, and we couldn’t be more excited! Tubing is an easy, mindless activity for everyone involved, but kids love it! Wilmot’s tubing area has 22 lanes over 1,000 feet long, with tubes to use AND a conveyor lift to bring the tubes to the top. No tired kiddos here!
If you’re feeling more adventurous and want to try something new, sign up for some ski or snowboard lessons on the bunny hill and take on a new hobby with your kids.
International Holiday at the Kenosha Public Museum
Shop local and international crafts at this free event put on at the Kenosha Public Museum. Your children will have the opportunity to be exposed to different cultures while enjoying sweets, crafts, and other gifts from around the world! Kids can create their own ornaments and listen to live music.
International Holiday will be on December 4th, don’t miss out!
Visit with Santa at the Kenosha History Center
Get your kids excited about Christmas with a visit to Santa! Bring your own camera and snap some adorable photos of your kids smiling next to Santa or giving him their wishlist.
This event is only available on November 27th and December 11th, so make sure to put this on your calendar!
Weather permitting, the lighthouse tower will also be open for climbs for kids 8+. More details are provided on their website.
Take a nice walk through HarborPark
You can take your kiddos for an afternoon walk through HarborPark and enjoy the fresh outdoors and beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Taking a walk in the area requires little to no planning and allows kids to burn off some energy after a day in the house.
Whether it’s spending the day at the local public museum, going to a holiday craft fair, or being outside, there are plenty of activities to do with your kiddos in the city of Kenosha! Just remember to get your kids outside and moving, even though it’s getting colder outside! You’ll likely find it’ll be beneficial for you, too!
