With the weather turned chilly and the days mostly cold and grey, you might decide it’s best to keep the kids indoors; however, winter is an exciting time to be outside. As long as the little ones are decked out in proper winter attire to keep warm, they can spend time outdoors and have fun experiencing nature.
You might be surprised to learn that gardening is a great activity to do with your kids at this time. In places where it gets too cold, gardens pretty much shut down over winter, but this is not the case for most of Australia. It’s definitely beneficial to the young generation to learn about winter crops. Not only does it add to the knowledge they have of sustainable and self-reliant living, but it also gets them outside, which is great for their physical and mental well-being.
