6 Winter Activities For Families

Have fun with your kids this winter. Six winter activities for families to enjoy together. Most of them will help get you outdoors, but there are a few indoor activities for those really cold days.Last Monday we woke up to find that snow had transformed the landscape into a winter wonderland. My inner child still delights in that first snowfall each year. There is something magical about the transformation and when the sun shines it is absolutely beautiful. Winter in northern climes can be challenging. Winter comes early and leaves late. Still snow is a lot of fun when you don’t have to shovel it! If the temperatures aren’t too frigid, bundle up the family and head outside for some winter fun together.
