There’s a reason so many people travel to Florida to vacation in the wintertime. We enjoy very mild, snow-free winters most years, but with cool enough weather to spend plenty of time outside. Kids also love the winter season as they have their long holiday vacation and plenty of activities to do around the house.
If you’re looking for fun activities to do with your kids this winter break, try one of these three outdoor options:
Help decorate the house.
If your kids are old enough, have them help mom or dad decorate the house with outdoor lights this season. You can have them hang lights on bushes, pass tools up to you while you’re on the ladder, and have them “inspect” your progress as you go.
Walk the dogs.
Many dogs in Florida love the winter because they can play outside all day long without being overheated. Have the kids run around with them in the backyard or take them for a walk if your yard isn’t fenced in. This can help them both burn off energy and enjoy the outdoors.
Have a backyard camping night.
In Florida, it is often too hot to go camping in the summertime, but December is the perfect time of year. You don’t have to go far either to enjoy a night of s’mores, stargazing, and laughs around the campfire. Set up a tent in the backyard and have them experience the joy of camping with the comforts of home close by.
For kids to have a safe place to play all year long, they need a yard where they can be protected. Consider fencing in your backyard this winter to provide safety, security, and privacy to your family. We offer affordable fence installation services with a one-year guarantee to ensure your loved ones are protected for years to come.
