Kids Just Wanna Have Fun

  Kids & Snow: Your Winter Manual Kids do not need instructions on how to have fun in snow, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared before sending the little ones out in the frozen wonderland for snowball fights, building snowmen, sledding, sliding… and having fun in myriad ways.
