18 Ways to Play in the Snow this Winter with your Kids

Snow sometimes sucks. But, if you give snow a chance, I promise it’s worth it. After a long summer trapped inside because of smokey skies, now is our time to shine. It’s time to dress like we own winter and enjoy the cold, soak up the sunshine, and laugh in the snow.

You only get 18 winters with your kids, so make it awesome.
