Winter activities to do with your family

The snow has finally arrived in Toronto! Princess Peach couldn’t control herself when she saw the snow. She wanted to lick it, touch it, throw it, roll in it and kick it. It was so sweet and innocent watching how excited she was to see the snow. Usually I grumble and complain when I see the snow, but this year, I’m embracing it! Part of that means, putting on my boots and part-taking in lots of outdoor winter activities with my family. 

Tobogganing

Grab a sled and trek to the top of that perfectly powdered hill.  Tobogganing is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy; nothing beats the thrill of sliding down a snowy white hill. What’s your toboggan of choice? The classic wooden style? The faster and more unpredictable flying saucer, or maybe a sleek crazy carpet?

Skating

For a calmer experience, a nice skate around a local outdoor rink is a great way to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with your kids. Both Peach and Little Dude were first on the ice at 16 months! It is an activity that my family enjoys doing together

Snowshoeing

If the snow is particularly deep, why not try snowshoeing? Modern snowshoes are inexpensive, snap onto all boots and are a fun and interesting way to walk across deep snow without sinking. In fact, snowshoes are a great way to get to the top of a toboggan hill safely and quickly.

Snow Forts and Snow Angels

If staying closer to home seems more appealing, building a snow fort with the kids in the yard is a classic winter activity.  Packing snow into bread tins is fun way to make snow bricks for building the best fortress on the block. Princess Peach also loves making snow angels. She could make them over and over.

When playing in the snow, there’s bound to be slips and falls, and not every toboggan run ends in a fluffy pile of snow, but that’s part of the fun. So when your day is done reach for Rub A535™ to soothe and relax tense muscles so you can do it all over again tomorrow.  For the little ones, natural source
