Tips for Visiting Wineries with Kids

If you drag your kids to a bunch of wineries with nothing for the kids to do, they are going to be completely miserable, which means you too are going to have an awful time. 

Bring a Frisbee.

Bring a small game to play:

  • GOtrio is a travel size version of Otrio. Otrio is a new level of tic tac toe. 
  • On the Dot game has over 60 brain teaser puzzles to solve and can be played by one to four people. This is a more challenging game and better for teens and tweens. It is considered a STEM activity. 
  • Ivan’s Hinge is another puzzle game and is for solo players. Your kid will fold, loop, bend, twist, and turn to find a solution! The patterned challenge cards invite curiosity, logic, determination. My eleven-year-old son will spend hours doing this.
  • Spot It is a matching game that can be played with one to eight players. You have to find the a matching symbol between two random cards. This is a STEM activity that develops focus, visual perception skills, speech-language skills, and fine motor skills. The kids and I have a lot of fun playing this game. 

Take snacks and drinks.
