Fun ways to get your kids outside and active this winter
Saturday, February 8, 2020

Winter is obviously challenging because of the weather - making sure your kids don't get sick from over-exposure to the elements or hurt on slick surfaces will always be at the forefront of a parent's mind. But that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of great, safe ways to get your kids outside and enjoying what the season can offer! Here are some great ways to spend time with your kids outdoors this winter:

  • Hiking
    While this may not be the first thing that comes to mind, hiking in the winter is wonderful. Snowfall can bring a new perspective to familiar wooded areas, and the lack of foliage can actually make for some beautiful landscapes!

  • Stargazing
    Typically we dread the shortened daylight, but it's a huge advantage for the stargazers in your family! Longer nights mean more available time to get out and enjoy the beautiful starlight.

  • Ice Skating
    You don't have to be a pro to enjoy a great ice-skating session! It provides a great arena for children to challenge their coordination, and the smile on a child's face when they finally get the hang of it is a sight to behold. You never know, it could also lead the way to a new passion!

  • Bird feeders are excellent for slower moments
    Do your kids need a break from the cold but still want to enjoy nature? Winter often brings about different species of birds (it's always fun to see bright red Cardinals against the snow), so placing a bird feeder near a window can bring tons of enjoyment for your little naturist!

  • Winter Picnics
    Picnics aren't just for warm weather! Many people love going outside and enjoying warm foods and drinks such as cocoa and soups, so mix things up and prepare a fun outdoor picnic in the snow!
Winter doesn't have to be constrained to the indoors and screens. Dealing with the cold forces us to get creative, but it can lead to some of your child's greatest memories as they grow older, so get outside and have fun!
