Beat the Winter Blues: Fun Ways to Battle BLAH Days with Kids

Living in FL we don't have to battle the SNOW but having lived in NY for over 22 years I know what it's like! It's not always easy to get outdoors with little ones so here are a few easy and fun ways to have FUN at home.


1. Kids love MESS! Go ahead and whip out the paints/art supplies and let them create and get messy! Better yet - join in on the fun! You'll see how quickly the time passes while you create and share giggles.


2. Too cold to enjoy the snow outside? Bring some snow inside (or use insta-snow), put on some mittens and enjoy some snowy fun in the warmth of your own home! How can you beat that?


3. Pump up the Volume & DANCE, DANCE, DANCE! Kids love to boogie but it's even more fun when mom/dad join in! So go ahead and put on those dancing shoes & get jiggy with it! :)


4. Bake - Let the kids join you in the kitchen to create a yummy treat. It's a great way to teach important skills like pouring, measuring and following directions. Plus, you end up with a yummy reward for all that hard work!


5. Play! Break out the toys, board games, dress-up clothes, etc and just have FUN together. For kids, there is nothing better than time spent with you and the memories you create will last a lifetime.



Have Fun,
Bern
