20 Winter Activities with Kids

How about 20 Winter Activities with Kids! The Winter time is a mixture of Lake effect weather, Snow days and Festive Holidays. We try really hard to enjoy the snowy tundra of Western New York as much as possible. Sometimes it is not always easy when Mother Nature dumps feet of snow daily on us! I have compiled a great list of FUN activities you can do with your family over the Winter months.

20 Winter Activities with Kids

1. Donate your time to local shelter, food pantry or Humane Society. We often give out Care packages at our local soup kitchen and each year brings more rewarding experiences!

    I love all these ideas… We didn't have much snow this winter in NY yet, but playing in the snow is definitely something we love to do. btw, I have never icy skate and it's something on my bucket list for this year. Thank you so much for sharing with us @ #alittlebitofeverything
