What's your favorite activity to do in the winter with your family?

Sara K

This will be our first winter with Saige where she can actually give skiing, skating, snowshoeing, etc. a try so I'll keep you posted. Sleigh rides, bonfires and hot chocolate have proven fun in the past and who can resist a "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" movie night complete with popcorn and mounds of blankets?

What's your go-to snack for your kids?

Sara K

I've started making a simple trail mix that the whole family seems to enjoy... every once in awhile I'll whip up a batch, seal it in a large tupperware container and grab scoops when needed. STEP 1: hit up Costco for their HUGE bags of dried cherries & natural almonds STEP 2: add a generous handful of cheerios & raisins *optional* STEP 3: if the kids are being extra good you can throw in a package of m&m's - those don't last long in my house thanks to me and my chocolate addiction.

What's an affordable and fun family activity?

Sara K

Saige is BIG into baking so some afternoons I google kid-friendly muffin or loaf or granola bar recipes and we let our inner Betty Crockers shine. It's super fun and tasty, but clean up can be a bit of a drag.
