Tips to Keep Your Child Active This Winter

Let’s face it: it’s cold outside — and the temperatures will drop even further from here. While many may feel the need to slow down because of the chilly winter wind, it’s still really important to keep your kids moving when it’s cold outside! Physical activity is important to your child’s health year-round. Here are some ways to keep them active throughout winter!


  • With a little creativity and imagination, your child can stay active with these indoor ideas
  • Exercise to music. This can be a family affair that will get everyone moving and grooving.
  • Dance/do chores to music.
  • Build a fort or an obstacle course (safely, of course) in the house.  
  • Play an interactive board/video game, especially if it’s educational. Your child will have a blast learning and staying active.
  • Play indoor sports. Finding an indoor roller rink, basketball court, or even a trampoline park is a great place for kids to get their energy out come the cold days.
  • Go to the mall and walk around. You can get your errands done while walking around.


  • If your child is going to be outside to run around, ensure they have the proper garments on to keep them warm. Layer clothing and invest in warm outdoor accessories.
  • Head out for a family hike.  Explore nature and get fit together!  Walking outdoors together is one of the best ways to spend quality time with the family.
  • Got snow?  Build a snowman, snow fort or make snow angels. And if things get really crazy, have an old-fashioned snowball fight!
  • Go ice skating. Experience twirling and gliding on ice, which is one of the best things to do in the winter time.

At Miss Sue’s, we understand the importance of staying active and having play time. Playtime is necessary for children because they are playful by nature. It is important to set aside some time daily for your child to engage in unstructured play. We believe in a multi-sensory approach to learning that is provided through play.
