Play in the Snow


If you have white Christmases in your area, this idea might go without saying. But we can all use a little reminder to get outdoors and play — especially when the winter chill sets in. Remember all the things you did in the snow as a kid (pre-video games!), such as building a snowman or fort, making snow angels, and going sledding or ice skating. There's something more magical about outdoor winter play around Christmastime, so get your clan off the couch!
