Let's Move: Ideas for Winter Activity

| Leave a comment

boy and snow.jpgBrrrrrr, it has been a cold winter! It is hard to get children outside to play when it is so cold. Children can still be active, even if they are inside. Here are a few easy ideas to help children stay active during the cold weather.


At Home

Act out a story. Read a book together and act out the actions.

Create an indoor obstacle course. Use pillows, boxes, balls, hula-hoops, and other objects to create an obstacle course. Time older children and see if they can beat their time. Let children create a new obstacle course every day!
