Winter can be a kid’s paradise, especially if it’s covered in snow.
Our favorite way to enjoy the snow is sledding. So this year, we’re eager to try out this mini luge, with high hopes that the kids really will feel like Olympian lugers while shooshing down the hillside.
This classic toboggan is appealing, too–maybe not for shooshing, but definitely for attempting to recreate a Currier & Ives type feel in our own backyard.
But do not overlook the wow potential in a pair of kid-sized snowshoes. It’s a pretty cool feeling to walk atop the snow instead of sinking into it all the way up to your knees, especially when you’re only a few feet tall to begin with! Snowpaws leave hilarious prints (freak out your neighbors!) and these Denalis will make any kid feel like Sir Edmund Hillary himself (once you’ve explained who that is).
Talk about walking in a winter wonderland!
