NY After School Program on 5 Ways to Make the Most Out of Winter, New York, New York

While the winter cold may be intimidating, it’s important to the health and well-being of your family to stay active. To inspire you to make the most of the lazy season, the team at Corbin’s Crusaders After School and Summer Day Camp, an after-school program based in New York City, offers five tips for making these next few months memorable for the whole family.

How to Stay Active This Season

1. Dress Warmly

It’s easy to underestimate what biting winds and the icy cold can do to your body. To prevent lowering your immunity and catching a cold, bundle up and make sure the snow won’t bleed through your clothes. Sometimes kids don’t like putting on layers, so encourage them with promises of fun games and activities, provided they dress warmly.

2. Enroll in Winter Activities

You might not think of winter as a season for sports, but there are many ways for your kids to get their workout. Sign your child up for ice skating lessons or ice hockey. They may be daunting at first, but they’re plenty of fun once kids get the hang of it. They’ll build up muscle, agility, and coordination as well.

3. Explore the Outdoors

Bring a nature book so your kids can learn all about the animals you find. This is a great way to remind them of the beauty of nature, despite how harsh the season can be.

4. Go With the Classics

There’s nothing wrong with staying at home to get your physical activity in. Kids love playing with snow, so if there’s enough of it, make snow angels, have snowball fights, and build igloos and snowmen right in your front yard. They can invite neighbors and friends over to join in as well.

5. Take a Trip

If you’ve saved up enough money and find the time in your schedule, a skiing or snowboarding trip is the perfect winter activity for the family. These are exciting new hobbies for first timers and fun for anyone seasoned on the slopes. Book early to avoid the crowd and pack well. Vacations, no matter how short, are a great way to unwind and get the whole family’s mind off of work, school, and stress.
