Make sure you kids know how to play safely in the snow. Since I was a child I always remember having so much fun in the snow during snow days off from school. I was raised and lived in the city, rarely did we ever hear of anyone being hurt playing in the snow. Our biggest threat was in “eating yellow snow.” 🙂 When I had kids of my own we moved to the country and snow days for my children became all about building snowmen, making snow angels and sleigh riding in the backyard. Today is different, sleds and snow games are different too – we hear heartbreaking stories about children being seriously injured or worse on snow days off from school.
Here are some rules to hopefully help prevent a tragedy and instead have some safe family fun in the snow! http://www.parents.com/fun/activities/rules-for-safe-snow-days/
