"Oh the weather outside is frightful"....
Oh baby it's getting cold outside, but there are so many fun activities that you can do with the family even when the weather isn't as warm as it was during the summer!
Now that the leaves are changing and the weather is a bit colder, no one wants to get outside. But the benefits of outdoor play even when it's chilly out are amazing.
Getting out of the house on a daily basis to do fun activities benefits your mind and your body! I have some great ideas that are free and can be fun, educational and gives you the opportunity to spend time as a family!
1. Get outside and take a walk
Not only is walking healthy for you but it gets you outside to see the beauty surrounding you. Look for different colors and types of leaves, watch the sunset and just enjoy the fresh crisp air.
Meet the neighbors and ask them what kinds of things they may like to do.
2. Get outside, rake some leaves (or in our case using the leaf blower) and dog-pile on top of them! Not only is this great exercise but you definitely get a lot of laughs too! Oh yea..and it gets the family out doing some yard work but shhhh...we don't want them to know we actually put them to work :)
3. If you are lucky enough to already have snow on the ground where you live, you can always have an old fashion snowball fight or build an awesome snowman together!
Getting outside and staying active is great for maintaining a healthy life. It gets the kids off the devices and you get quality time together as a family. Making memories that will last a lifetime. So get off the couch, grab your jacket, head out the door and see what you can discover!
