Winter Ideas For Kids
This time of year is the perfect time to do indoor activities with the kids! Let the fun flow this winter with some easy crafts and activities!
Read on below for some of our favorite ideas.
Winter Books For Kids
Reading to your children is an excellent way to stimulate their imagination, develop their language and social skills, foster a love of books, and so much more!
Reading aloud encourages kids to take in more information than they might on their own by providing a shared experience that can be discussed after the book is done.
A child’s growing understanding of new words, characters, and stories help build reading comprehension—opening up future opportunities in learning and life. Above all else, reading to your kids creates special moments between you that they will cherish forever!
Here are some of the top-rated winter books for kids:
The Biggest Snowman Ever – When the mayor of Mouseville announces the town snowman contest, Clayton and Desmond claim that they will each make the biggest snowman ever.
The Snowy Day – This story shows a child’s wonder at a new world and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever.
