The cozy season is officially upon us, and, though I enjoy the colder weather, my kids do not. Fin and Lox would much rather get cozied up in their soft Isotoner slippers with some warm milk than spend time in the cold. Today, I’ve partnered with Isotoner to share with you some of the activities we like to do on a cozy day in.
Why We Choose Isotoner
- Our Girl’s Wendi Hoodback Slippers are machine washable (as a mom of toddlers, this is obviously going to be my number one priority)
- Cute styles that go with anything
- Microsuede outside with soft fleece lining for comfort and warmth
- Classic low back style slips on and off for on-the-go convenience
- Versatile indoor/outdoor outsole (because I really hate to have to change my shoes if I’m taking the trash out.)

7 Mommy & Me Cozy Day In Activities
Bake A Treat
For some reason, baking just seems a lot more fun in the colder months than it does during other parts of the year. This time of year as such fun flavors, and the oven adds a little extra warmth to the home. A great way to spend a cozy day indoors is to bake up a fun treat with your littles. My kids are definitely too young to help with everything, but they are able to do some of the mixing or add in ingredients and they love it. It’s also fun to see them mimic these actions while playing pretend later on.
The Floor Is Lava
I honestly don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy a game of “the floor is lava.” As a kid, I remember playing this both on the playground and inside. We will throw a bunch of pillows and blankets on the floor and the girls will try to make it from one couch to the other without touching the floor. The girls like to get creative with the methods they use to keep from touching the floor. At one point, Finley put on her Isotoner Wendi Hoodback Slippers and called them her “lava shoes.”
Make A Blanket Fort
You really can’t go wrong with a blanket fort. Whenever I make a blanket fort for the girls, it provides hours of entertainment. Whether they are reading books inside with a snack or playing hide and seek, they can’t get enough of it. They even get a kick out of destroying it when they are done.
If you been following along for a bit, then you know that reading is always a go-to activity for me. If you’re spending a day indoors, you can still have an adventure or two just by picking up a book.
Slime is such a fun sensory activity for toddlers. It’s a great one if you don’t plan on going anywhere that day because it has the possibility of getting messy. You can add different things to the slime, like beads or glitter, to make it extra fun. (See why it’s so important to me that our Isotoner slippers are machine washable?)
Kids love to dance, and it’s a great way to get their energy out if they are spending the day inside. It’s also fun as a parent to see all of the silly moves they come up with.
Do Something Creative
Whether it’s coloring, painting, or doing a craft, doing something creative is a great way to spend a day indoors. And it’s a fun activity to do together. My favorite is coloring.
