December marks the start of the winter season and for many families across the nation, a season of holiday festivity. Utilize some of the seasonal changes around your community and home to enjoy a few exciting activities with the family. Before the kids are let out from school for the start of winter vacation, now is the perfect time to do what you can to prepare for keeping them engaged and excited for what the winter season has to offer -

If you are not sure where to start, when it comes to getting your kids in the spirit of the season, try out some of these popular holiday activities with you loved ones to create a few holiday traditions of your own.
Outdoor or indoor, ice skating is an exciting and challenging sport that can make keeping your family active an easy task. A few fun rounds across your local ice skating rink can be just what your little ones need to kick off the festive winter season. Bundle up and make sure everyone feels comfortable on the ice. Winter is the perfect time to help any new skaters master skills on the ice. Other fun ice skating related sports to check out include broomball or ice hockey.
Winter holiday decorations take on a life of their own, this time of year as homes seem to sparking with holiday lights and other darling décor items. Get your family in on this process by having the little ones create fun paper snow flakes or a beautiful holiday wreath to warmly greet your family and friends during the cold winter season. You might even take your family on a ride through the neighborhood to admire some of your neighbor’s fantastic holiday displays.
Many refer to the holiday season as the season of giving. This year, don’t make that specific to presents under your tree, and do what you can to help those in your community that might be struggling to get by. As a new take on holiday giving, have your family collect canned foods or toys for the less fortunate, as a compassionate way of spreading holiday cheer this winter.
These are just a few of the ways for you to bring your family together, this season. Take some time to give these options a try or to share some of your favorite winter time activities with your fellow JumpStart parents!
