For many parents, January is not only a time of resolutions, it's also a time where we find ourselves actually realizing it's winter and that it's a good time to start thinking of winter activities to do with the kids.
For those out there who like to deny that winter is here, I always find that indoor activities like swimming is a great way to go. There are a lot of great recreation centres across the region with waterslides for the kids and saunas and whirlpools for the parents.
If you're a winter activity lover, you can't beat ice skating. Even if you're not that great of a skater, it's a fun way to spend a Saturday or Sunday with the kids. Think your kids are too young? You'd be surprised how early the little ones take to the ice - just be sure to put a helmet on them before you go.
I would talk a bit about skiing and snowboarding, but the lack of snow has made this winter less than a good option and I don't want to upset our skiing and snowboarding friends anymore than I have to.
If you have some great ideas for winter activities or events around Durham, send us a note and we'll be sure to post them. January is a little bit of a slow month for activities, but we've updated our Durham Region event calendar with some local events and will continue to keep everyone posted as we find out more.
