Monday, February 17 is Family Day in Saskatchewan. Take some time and talk to your kids about this holiday ~ why it is important to spend time as a family.
Don’t waste the day on the couch! Chilly, snowy days are calling your kids outside! Try some of these fun outdoor family activities:
SLEDDING: Find a good hill and grab your toboggan! Bundle up in layers to stay warm and cushion tumbles. Toddlers should ride with a parent.
SNOW ANGELS: Lie down and do a jumping jack. Viola – you have snow angel. You can use food coloring to draw on a face, and old clothes to dress it up.
ICE SKATING: Age 4 or 5 is a nice time to begin skating. Most children wear figure skates or hockey skates to start out. Have beginners wear a helmet, and offer them a hand to help with balance.
BUILD A SNOWMAN: Your kids will love to make a snowman in the yard! After rolling and stacking a few big snowballs to make the body, find fruits, vegetables, sticks, berries, clothes, and other materials to bring your snowman to life.
BUILD A SNOW FORT: Kids can use a shovel or roll snowballs to build one of these arctic domes.
Have the hot cocoa ready when everyone comes back inside!
