There’s no need to get the Winter Blues when there are so many fun things to do. You can stay warm and cozy with indoor activities or bundle up the kids and head outside for some cold weather fun!  Check out this list of ideas.  You’re sure to find


  • Make Gourmet Hot Chocolate – Add crushed hard candies, caramel, whipped cream, cinnamon, etc.

    What a great list! I would just copy your list if I knew we would get some snow. Flurries are falling as I type but may not amount to enough for a snowman, making snow angels or having a snowball fight. Oh, how I love snow!!

    Cutting paper snowflakes sounds like a great way to bring ‘snow’ to my world. And want to check out your snow globe activity.

    Would love to have you link up your post with us. And share your progress on your list with us on 01.21 and 02.21.

    Happy new year.
