Four ways to play with your kids indoors #giveaway #PlayAdvocate

The weather is starting to change and the amount of time that we are able to spend outside is sadly decreasing. The cold weather and winter will be here before we know it! My job as a parent gets a little more complicated in the winter time as I have to make sure we have lots of fun activities in the house to keep both Princess Peach and Little Dude engaged. As much as we love to play in the snow the past few winters have been freezing so I have to be prepared for lots of indoor play! This is why we love Hot Wheels™.  There are plenty of ways to build and create with your little ones inside, and below are some tips to help you make this winter fun no matter what the weather:

Clear Some Space
Your little ones will be used to having lots of space to run around, so the move inside may be a little bit of a shock to the system! Make sure you have a little area for them to play and create, even if it’s just reorganising their room so there’s a bit more floor space.
Get Creative
Without the great outdoors to rely on, you may need to get a bit creative in terms of activities. Arts and crafts can be a fun indoor activity as well as building toys or forts. Help them create their own indoor castle or hideout with cardboard boxes and decorate it with paint and other craft supplies. It will provide hours of fun and a great way to engage their imagination.
Get Involved
Your little ones will naturally be more interested in activities that you also get involved with, so as they move inside, be prepared to get a bit more hands-on with play time. They’ll love it if you play the evil dragon to their cardboard castle or help them build a racetrack for their Hot Wheels™.
Take it Online
Playing the online or computer version of their favourite game can be a fun way for your little ones to explore a whole new universe of possibilities when it comes to their favourite toys. With Hot Wheels™ Epic Race, your little ones will be able to take track building to heights – let their imaginations run wild!

Even though Little Dude is 2 years old he adores Hot Wheels. He loves anything and everything with wheels and the tracks give him an opportunity to use his imagination and play with the cars in a different more imaginative way. It is also a great way to get Princess Peach and Little Dude playing together in a cooperative manner with the cars and tracks.
