Consider these three indoor winter activities that do not require electronic devices.

With winter weather setting in, the days are getting colder, and you will likely be spending more time indoors. Unfortunately, that often means more time spent sitting on the couch, using electronic devices. If you have found your family spends too much time texting on their phones, watching movies on their laptops, or otherwise engaging with electronics, consider these three indoor winter activities for adults and kids that do not require electronic devices.


Your bake-off or cook-off can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Do it as a family or invite a few friends over to participate. Split-up into two or three groups. Make your favorite holiday treats, or try new treats. You could have one or two people not participate in the baking and instead be the judge, or simply forget about picking a winner, and just enjoy the treats.

You could also have a bake-off or cook-off by giving each team specific ingredients and seeing what they can make with those supplies. As a bonus, having a bake-off in your home will warm it up on a cold winter day.  

Murder Mystery Game

While people often think of murder mystery games as Halloween activities, they can be a fun activity any time of year. This is something teenagers and adults alike can enjoy. You can get really into the game and have everyone dress-up, or you can simply all come in your everyday clothes. There are many murder mystery kits that you can purchase online or at some stores. Often, you can find information about the specific game, which will help you decide which one is right for you. You may even be able to create your own murder mystery game.


Of course, sometimes it is nice to get away from the house and enjoy fun winter activities for both adults and kids that are still indoors. If that is the case, come to Pole Position Raceway.
