Winter weather can have a negative effect on a lot of people. It’s cold. It’s raining. It’s snowing. It’s dreary. We’ve had that kind of weather here. (Except for the snow. My 2nd grader prays every day for snow.) I don’t know about you, but the cold, dreary weather makes me want to just curl up and hibernate. Unfortunately, my kids and I don’t see eye-to-eye on that one. They are full of boundless energy that makes me want to pull my hair out at times. 🙂
This is where I am thankful for the After School team of bloggers that share their ideas. This week, I am sharing their fabulous and creative ideas for the winter blahs (even when you’re stuck indoors)!
