Sure, wintertime may not be the best time to go on vacation. That’s usually what summers are for. But when you think about it, it begins to look like a more favorable option. First, because you can travel somewhere warmer.
Also, when you take a vacation in the winter, the off-season timing usually yields better flight/hotel deals. Plus, if you’re away you have your host to take care of the cold for you.
Protect Your Stroller Wheels From Rain or Mud
Found yourself repeatedly scrubbing the dirt and stains left by your child’s wet and muddy stroller wheels? Next time you take the stroller out in the winter, consider this ingenious idea.
Use shower caps to keep the stroller tires isolated and your carpet mess-free.
Camouflage Your Tank
This one is for those who already know how to brave the winter and are now looking for tips on aesthetics. Those people have a propane tank to keep their homes warm when it gets cold, which is efficient, yet unsightly in an otherwise beautiful yard.
Keep the tank hidden until you need it with a plastic rock box, which you can build to your specifications, no matter how your yard looks. Different colors of rocks and different configurations of the box will fit into any kind of outdoor garden.
Relieve a Sore Throat With Baking Soda
The infamous winter sore throat can be really aggravating, not to mention a nightmare to get rid of. Taking too many antibiotics can start harming your body after a while, so you might want to resort to home remedies before you contact the nearest pharmacy.
To help ease the pain and irritation of a sore throat, try gargling a mix of warm water and baking soda. For an extra kick, add some salt and lemon juice into the mix.
Build an Igloo With Perfect Snow Blocks
Building an igloo in the snow is one of those activities that make winter fun, and if your kid is looking to make theirs extra authentic, you can help them out with a simple Tupperware container.
Just use any size container to form “bricks” and let their imaginations run wild.
