After breakfast is all cleaned up, we bundle up and head outside. Pulling out the snow pants, gloves, boots and hat and getting it all on can be somewhat of an event. In the past, after all of this preparation, my son would be outside for 20 minutes, get bored and want to come back in. Then it is off with the garb, leaving a big snowy mess on my hands. To avoid this short-lived outdoor trek, we have come up with a few outdoor activities to get some of his energy out and make the most of the snow.
