The air is getting cooler, the days are getting shorter, and it’s dark outside by 5 p.m. If you are prone to the winter blues, as I am, this is the time of year when we really begin to feel it. The reality is, my family and I live in the Midwest, and we have at least three more months of winter weather. Possibly more. I can’t curl up under the cozy covers all weekend long because I have three young kids, but I have learned a few things that keep us happy and entertained even through the dark days of winter.
Over the years, we have found ways to create new family friendly traditions that are simple and allow the kids to go to bed at their usual time. No scary costumes required.
