Are you and your family experiencing "cabin fever"? With families spending a lot more time at home these days, we’re all looking for ways to make the inside more fun. Here are our top 4 fun activities to do with your family by your fireplace:
1. Roast Marshmallows. If you don’t own a fire pit or if it’s just too cold to go outside, roasting marshmallows indoors is a great alternative! Kids love making S’mores or eating marshmallows right off the stick (We usually hold our marshmallows on metal skewers and hold them with potholders).
2. Play cards. Why play cards at the table when you can make it more fun? There is something more memorable about playing cards when you are playing by a fire. 
3. Watch a movie. Turn all the lights off and watch a movie by the light of your fireplace. It makes a perfect mood for family cuddles. 
4. Go Camping. Grab the sleeping bags and set yourselves up in the living room by your fireplace. The kids will love pretending that they are camping and you’ll enjoy not having to set up all the tent pegs or deal with any pesky bugs.
