Sure it's still great to get kiddos outside for a bit in the winter, but it can be depressing when you can't stay out long. What are doing to fight the winter blues ans cabin fever with your kids?

We try to get out when we can, but we do a lot of dancing which my boys love. I will put on the music and we just have a blast. We have instruments and do a "parade" and Troy gets to do lots of crafts--paints, coloring, cutting....

We live in Georgia and have had one rainy cold day after another. To keep the kids moving and staying healthy, I've been doing Yoga for Kids with them at least every other day. I've also been making sure they snack on raw veggies and are drinking plenty of water. This ensures they eat well at lunch and sleep well for nap.

Other than our regular daily curriculum, I try to throw in hands on or verbal "thinking" games to go along with our theme. This week we are doing the letter V and there isn't much you can do with that (arts and crafts wise anyway) so after we finished making our Valentines today, we played a couple of verbal "thinking" games like "guess the vegetable I am" and "what do I need to take along if I vacation at the beach, the mountains, etc."? The kids really enjoyed it and for a few moments they were focused and calm.
