We live in New England. February it’s always a brutally cold month.

Usually, we are buried in snow.

That’s a double edge sword when coming up with activities to keep active and curious toddlers busy.

We try to get them outside every day, but some days it’s just too cold. 

So we’ve had to come up with a mix of both indoor and outdoor activities for February.

There are so many great themes and activities for February.
