What To Do With Your Kids in Paris During The Winter

January 06, 2021
Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't have fun with your family. At least, that's the way it is here in Paris. Come on! The French capital is too beautiful a city, especially when it's covered in snow, to stay cooped up in your home. The only reason you have to stay at home is when there's a global pandemic! But the minute that's out of the way and it's still winter, there's no reason why you can't have fun with the entire family outside. There are a ton of things to do with your kids in the city even during winter!

Plan a Picnic In The Snow

Firstly, why not go on a picnic? So what that it's negative degrees outside? So what that you have to wear multiple layers in order to stay comfortable? So what that a lot of the parks are practically knee-deep in snow? They're all part of the fun! As long as you're appropriately dressed, have enough blankets, and brought along some warm drinks to stay safe, go and bring your entire family to the nearest park for a picnic. Don't miss just how stunning these places are when they're covered in snow! As well as the fun time you can spend with your kids. Snowball fights, making snowmen and snow angels, and more!

Go on Baking Classes at Galleries Lafayette

If it's simply too cold outside, you can always bake! Eating French pastries to stay warm is one thing, but it's actually just as fun to bake said treats as well. And no, you don't have to stay at home to do this one as well. For a truly unique family winter in Paris experience, head on over or to Galeries Lafayette where they hold baking classes for the entire family. Amidst all the French designer brands and luxury labels, the iconic department store offers sweet culinary lessons for both young and old. Sounds fun, right?

Gorge on Sweets in a Patisserie

Why learn to bake when, especially in Paris, you can just enjoy the treats yourself? Parisian patisseries are some of the best sweets shops you'll ever find in the world. A good number of them are even world-renowned! You can bring your entire family for an afternoon of sweets—be it chocolates, macarons, or more!—complete with some hot chocolate for the kids and some coffee for the adults! Don't worry, the pastries they serve here are always fresh and warm, straight out of the oven! So warm, in fact, that leaving them on your plate to cool off for a bit won't take too much away from its warmth.

Head to Disneyland Paris

Going to Disneyland Paris is always a surefire way to entertain your kids, even during the dead of winter. You can go on all sorts of rides, watch the adorable shows they put on, let them meet their favorite characters, and more! And just because it's snowing doesn't mean the park will close. On the contrary, the place looks more like a fairytale when it's covered in snow! And know that the original parks in the US are located in places where it doesn't snow, so seeing a snow-covered Disneyland is a sight you can only see in Paris!

Perfect Time to Warm Up in a Museum

When it gets too cold outside and your kids aren't hungry to go to a café (or they're full because you just came from one!), you can always warm up in a museum! This is the perfect time to bring them to some of Paris' finest museums, places they'd ordinarily refuse to go to. Amidst the heated establishments of such iconic places, not only will they get to see the most historic and most beautiful works of art, but they'll also stay warm and toasty. Granted they may complain that it's boring from time to time, but having them visit these places will be priceless!

Go Ice Skating at Famous Spots

When all else fails, go ice skating! What kid doesn't love gliding on ice as snowflakes gently fall all over them? It's a sight they won't soon forget, that's for sure! And during winter, a good many of Paris' most famous spots turn into ice-skating rinks! The Eiffel Tower area, for instance, becomes the most popular ice-skating rink in the entire city. Who won't want to skate while the iconic monument looms largely upon them? The Grand Palais is also turned into a massive indoor ice skating rink as well!

Just because winter has descended on Paris, it doesn't mean that you can't spend quality time outdoors with your family. On the contrary, the beautiful snow and the cold climate will allow you to do all sorts of activities in and around the French capital!

After spending some much-needed family time in Paris during winter, won't it feel heavenly to come home to a nice, warm, luxury apartment?
