25 winter activities for kids


Is our long, frozen nightmare over yet? Temperatures seem to be warming up, and that means you can get your little ones outside for some winter fun! Here are 25 ideas to inspire you:

1. Dog sled rides

Dog sled rides with Door County Dog Sleds will be offered again this year, weather permitting, on Sundays beginning in January and running through mid-February 2018. The rides will take paces from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. in Whitnall Park or McKinley Marina on beautiful Lake Michigan. The cost is $15 for children and $20 for adults. This non-profit organization is run entirely by volunteers, and their sled team is made up of lovable rescued dogs. They race for charities and offer dog sled rides in Whitnall Park. Rides are usually offered January through February, but they are weather dependent. You’ll get to visit with the dogs, ask questions of their humans, take pictures, and enjoy a dog sled ride on the trail. There is a warming house with concessions and a sledding hill nearby. Check the website or call the Sled Dog Hotline for the most updated details. Door County Sled Dogs(414) 967-9677doorcountysleddogs.com
