In an effort to get kids off the screens and out into the fresh air for a few hours, parents are getting really creative. There aren’t as many outdoor options in the winter, but one of the more creative ideas is to build a backyard ice rink! I’ve actually seen a lot of people do this here in Connecticut.
This woman who lives in Detroit built a backyard ice rink for the kids in her neighborhood to skate and play hockey on. The local fire department even showed up with one of their water trucks to help with all the water to freeze.
