Too warm for snow, too cold for swimming

I was all set this year to play outside with the kids a lot more this winter. We had the big snow storm early on and sledded in the yard and threw snowballs at each other. Then, it started warming up. We keep having days around 45 degrees.

I get the kids out of the house to take them to the mall (for the bookstore with the train set and the play area) but I have not done a good job of getting them outside to play.

For some reason, 45 is a really awkward outside temperature. I think it has a lot to do with it being hard to get properly dressed.

Anyway, I was reading Weary Parenting’s post about getting some new traditions started for the family this new year. I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Resolutions, but it was a nice reminder to get out of the house more. I think I’ll try to take the kids to the park after work or at least go for a walk around the neighborhood.

Do you have any good outdoor activities for young kids during those awkward in between temperatures?
