How To Take Your Kids On A 5 Senses Walk This Winter

5 senses winter walkNow that the snow and cold has gripped the North of continent, it’s time to celebrate this sub-zero season.

While some kids have snow parties (they didn’t need them in Nevada and Arizona last week, the temperatures were 30 degrees overnight), others had been “spoiled” with up to 2 1/2 feet of snow in a day.

Whatever your seasonal situation, taking your kids on a 5 senses walk is a great way to engage them while they’re out getting some exercise.

Here’s how you can experience a 5 Senses Winter Walk with your kids:

  • Taste 1 of 5
    What do you think _____ tastes like? Does the air have a taste?
