Beating the Winter Blahs–Remediation Ideas for Families
It’s that time of year again! Winter has been here in Michigan for several months now and we are all beginning to feel the winter blahs. The weather has been gloomy and we have been cooped-up inside for awhile now. I wanted to share some ideas with you today about how to beat that winter feeling. Here are a few simple ideas to cheer you and your family up this season:
~Have a beach party in your living room–You could put out your beach towels, sip lemonade, play with a beach ball, make sand castles using Moon Sand (this doesn’t make too much of a mess), etc.
~Build a fire in your fireplace and roast marshmallows–Smores taste just as good in the winter!
~Camp out in the living room–You could set up your tent and sleeping bags in the living room and camp out. It is a lot of fun to tell stories and look at the stars (you could put a few of the glow in the dark stars).
~Make summer treats–Rice Krispie treats, jell-o desserts, pudding desserts, popsicles, and ice cream are always tasty!
~Look at memory books from years past–It is always fun to reminisce about past experiences!
I hope you find these ideas helpful. Spring will be here soon!
