January 29, 2019 — It was Aristotle who noted that “To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” True. And hardly anything beats the sparkly splendor of a fresh-fallen snow. However, what if it’s just too cold? Or what comes after the outdoor, close-up snowflake appreciation?
When temperatures allow, getting kids outside during winter can be really good for them. The time-honored possibilities of sledding, skiing, snowboarding, snowball fights, and igloo- and snowman-building are fairly foolproof, good-time fun.
