Trying to keep your stir crazy kids entertained during the winter season is a problem that every New York parent is facing. The weather is cold; the snow is falling, and there's no way to entertain the kids.

Most parents are trying to wait out the winter weather by keeping their kids inside. For these parents, it's not about saving the kids from frost bite, it's about maintaining their sanity. With constant snow storms and lack of winter activities, parents across the city are wondering how they can prevent their kids from experiencing cabin fever, and driving them nuts.

Don't let the cold weather prevent you from getting rid of those little rug rats. While most of New York is covered in blankets of snow and ice, your children can enjoy arts and crafts, swimming, aerobics, and sports at the YMCA. Founded in 1852, the YMCA is a nonprofit organization that provides the community with free or affordable activities. Take your family to any one of the 22 branches located throughout the New York City area. With a wide variety of programs, the YMCA has activities for children, adults, and even seniors. Parents and children can fight winter boredom, make new friends, and stay active at the YMCA.
