Even after nearly three years in the city, I still haven’t gotten used to the winter weather here in NYC. I’ve been rather lucky and we’ve had two very mild winters the past couple of years, but it’s still much too cold to take the girls out to play.
I have two very active little girls that love to crawl and run around no matter where they are. With the playground off of our list this winter, I knew that I needed to come up with some things for us to do so that I wouldn’t go crazy. Our apartment is rather small, so too many days stuck inside is enough to make anyone lose their mind.
This winter I decided to get a little bit creative and make a list of things that I could do with the girls that would help us get a little bit of our extra energy out. Some of my winter activities brought us to different places and some of them had us having fun and being creative inside. Either way, they were things that we don’t do often which made them extra fun and exciting. I can’t wait to get through our entire list this winter and see just how much fun my girls have doing what I have planned!
