Also, if there was a frost just before the snow and the bottom layer is slushy, it won’t be comfortable to sit inside the igloo. Make sure the walls are not too thin and compact snow down so it is sturdier and if you use block moulds, it will be easier.

Age 4 or 5 is a nice time to begin skating or take lessons. Most children wear figure skates or hockey skates to start out.

Wear good safety gear, get lessons, and stick within the designated snowboarding areas.
There’s nothing better than gliding through the cool air on a sled. Find a good hill and grab your tube, toboggan, or saucer for hours of entertainment. Sledding is fun for all ages, but toddlers should ride with a parent, and should be well-bundled in layers to stay warm and cushion their tumbles.

By joining in the fun, you can help your younger child or underdog while also supervising to make sure it doesn’t turn into bullying. Avoid injuries by making sure the snow isn’t too icy.
