After numerous weeks of record-breaking, harsh winter weather on the Eastern Seaboard, we have experienced spring-like conditions for most of this past week. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security, however – winter is not over!

Mother Nature reminded us of that just this afternoon when a front blew in with a rare February thunderstorm and a torrential rainstorm which dropped the temperature from the toasty 70s to the 40s. As such, below you will find a list of activities you and your family can enjoy for the remainder of winter. The activities are self-explanatory. (This list is not meant to be exhaustive.)

  • Go sledding (but not on off ramps of interstate highways)
  • Make snow angels
  • Make snow cream
  • Have snowball fights
  • Take ski lessons
  • Go on a winter scavenger hunt
  • Catch snowflakes on your tongue
  • Go ice skating (but not on frozen ponds – go only where it is safe to do so)
  • Build a snow fort
  • Build a snowman, snow animal
  • Draw pictures in the snow with food coloring
  • Feed the birds
