Sometimes we have to be very creative to get our kids outside in the cold winter snow; at least my kids anyway.
IKEA opened in Denver a few months ago and I found these awesome kitchen accessories for cheap and decided to give it to the girls with the impression that it was only for snow cooking. (Baking Set for $9.99 and Cookware set for $9.99.)
And it worked! My kids love “cooking” with snow.
Granted, it’s not particularly aerobic but I still count it as outside time.
Plus, they’re creating!
The girls and daddy build a kitchen room with snow bricks.
Now the kids feel lots of motivation to go play in the snow!
