FUN ACTIVITIES TO DO IN THE SNOW
For most families, winter break brings with it celebrations, decorations, a ton of food and a whole lot of holiday fun. But what happens during the rest of the winter season? We understand that playing with holiday gifts can only go so far in keeping the kids entertained, so, to help you out, we’ve compiled a list of awesome, family-oriented activities that are specially designed to keep your holiday merry and bright. 1. Enjoy the snow as a family What better way to celebrate this season than to spend a little time outdoors in it? Rather than huddling in your nice, warm house, take some time to bundle up and enjoy the snow. Build a snowman, go sledding or have a family snowball fight. If you want to see the snow but not be in it, setting up a family nature walk is a great way to appreciate the beauty of winter. Spot different varieties of birds, collect leaves and twigs or take time to notice how things change with each season. The best part about being outdoors is you can always top it off with some nice hot chocolate and winter treats as a family. 2. Go ice skating One great thing about living
in New Jersey is the accessibility of awesome resources like the ice arenas. Take advantage of that by going ice skating as a family. Even the elderly can enjoy some time on the ice with a walker or other arena provided resources. 3. Craft it up Keep the family activities free and fun with some at-home and do-it-yourself style craft projects that can be catered to family members of all ages. Frommaking paper snowflakes to indoor snowmen and edible snow, these tips and ideas are sure to provide hours of family fun with items you probably already have. Do you plan on being active this season with family, but are concerned about possible injuries occurring? Schedule an appointment with our physical therapists for a consultation on any risks or health conditions you may be concerned with. We’ll help you accomplish your active goals before the season ends!
