4 Winter fun ideas

Set up Bird Feeders and Go Bird Watching

Winter is tough on birds, so now is a great time to have your kids put out some suet or birdseed and watch some very hungry birds come to feast. If there is any snow on the ground, you will end up with plenty of interesting tracks to check out as well. This is a great time for kids to learn more about bird migration and what birds have stayed for the winter, as well as to go scouting for old nests that will now be visible in trees.

3 Fun Outdoor Activities for Older Kids

Capture the flag
The classic game of capture the flag can be exciting when you play it on a winter night and add campfires at either flag where players can warm their feet and hands. You can even use a glow-in-the-dark flag or safety reflectors and the kids will make childhood memories they’ll never forget.Winter weather may seem unpredictable at times, but there is one thing that is almost always predictable about the winter months: your kids will get bored and they’ll stay inside too much. The cure for winter boredom and lazy habits is figuring out fun things to do outside. There may or may not be snow where you live, so what follows are activities you can do in winter even if you don’t have snow.

Make a Valentine snow cave

heartsnowcavefrontThis weekend Toronto has been a winter wonderland. Though I live in Canada, we have not been very lucky when it comes to fun winter weather. It was fantastic to have so much snow this weekend and watch people have so much fun skiing, skating, sledding and I even saw quite a few smiling faces shoveling driveways.
