Winter may not be a favorite season for some, yet children love playing in the snow. Who doesn’t remember having a snowball fight as a child? I must admit I wanted to stay home and not go out after this last snow storm. However, my little one quickly convinced me it was time to go play.
Winter time is a good time to let the inner child come out and play. If you have children, go and have fun! Make some snow angels, snowman or snowballs. Just be sure to dress children in warm layers, skip the cotton clothing this time. Choose fleece, wool or warm fabrics and keep hands and head covered. Offer a snack before going out to maintain energy and make sure their feet are warm and dry.
We have more snow on the way so it may be a good time to go to library and get some books to read with my little one. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and The Mitten by Jan Brett are two favorite classics for children. Perhaps you can also enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate and read to your child. Make some memories and Happy Valentine’s day!
