We've already had our first taste of winter and the temperatures were brutally cold!  So I am ready to find a few new ideas before the next snowy day blows in from the west. 

Now, I'll admit that no matter how snowy or cold the day, I do like the get the kids outside for a while.  But we also love to have some fun seasonal indoor activities to do too.  So for this week's Discover & Explore Winter round-up, I thought I would pull together a variety of winter activities that can be done both inside and out.
