Santa has come and gone, presents are unwrapped and the kids are home for a week and ready to be entertained. How will you spend those long hours between now and the new year? We’ve put together a brief list of activities that will help you and your family enjoy the “most wonderful time of the year”:

Ice skating – Channel your inner-Brian Boitano and enjoy this winter classic for all ages. Sledding – For the little adrenaline junkies in your life. Downhill Skiing/Snowboarding – A recreational activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and levels. Cross-Country Skiing – A wonderful way to stay active and take in the winter wonderland. Nature Center – Explore a local nature museum or take a walk in the woods. Indoor Driving Range – For those hoping to try-out their new golf clubs they got for Christmas.

Best of all, staying active will not only tire the little ones out, but they’ll help you shed some of those holiday pounds accumulated after weeks of eating delicious treats. Don’t forget the importance of balancing calories in with calories out. So get out there and have some fun!
