How To Get Your Kids Outdoors When It's Cold - #SqueezablesSours


Fall is here, the leaves are changing and are mostly on the ground, and the weather is getting cooler. Getting kids outdoors when it’s cold outside can be a challenging feat for many parents. It seems during the warmer months a cold day won’t keep those kids inside, but when it comes to the Winter season and it’s like fighting tooth and nail to get them to go play outdoors. Kids are so unpredictable in how they will respond to the cold outdoors. As a parent, you want to make sure your kids get their daily activity regardless of the weather outdoors. Here are some tips to make sure your kids get outdoors when it’s cold with the help of MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours, after all who doesn’t like a sweet, or in this case a sour (but not too sour) treat.



Enlist the Kids in an Outdoor Sport
There are many outdoor sports, you can get your kids into when the Winter season arrives. If you start younger you will have more success, but teenagers can still find a new joy of Winter sports. Think about what interests your kids and have them give a Winter sport a try. Don’t forget to have a few MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours to give them an added boost in inspiration.

Create Outdoor Chore Lists
Most families have a chore list for kid’s setup; think about what chores each child can do outdoors in the cold season. If you reside in an area that snows, you may have the chore list for kids include shoveling, snow blowing, or picking up debris that has fallen on your lawn. Have a MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours as part of their reward for doing their chore.

Make the Great Outdoors Enticing
Think about the incentives you can provide kids for getting outdoors and having at least half an hour of activity each day. Possibly try a system where the kids receive extra inside privileges if they meet your daily outdoor requirement for activity levels.


Purchase the Proper Clothing
There’s something about having the proper cold weather clothing that encourages kids to get outdoors when it’s cold. Take the kids shopping at a local thrift store to find the proper Winter clothing so they won’t even realize it’s cold outside during this season.

Entice Them With a Treat
Kids just love treats and knowing that they can have one when they're playing is a great way to entice them to go outdoors. The NEW MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours is one such treat. Available in sour cherry, sour lemon and sour raspberry flavors, they are perfect for kids on the go. (MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables are also available in Strawberry, Honey Cinnamon, and Unsweetened.) The twist off cap means that there will be no clean up and it's conveniently mess free. Whether they're on their way to basketball practice or even a quick trip to the park, the pouches are perfect and not too sour. Just ask Madison who just LOVES the sour lemon! They are GMO free with no high fructose corn syrup which makes me happy to give them to her.


Offer Treats to Warm Up
Be certain to stock up on warm treats for the cold season, such as hot chocolate and cookies. Let the kids know that after they are done being outside having fun, they get to come inside and enjoy a nice hot chocolate. This is a sweet reward for kids who may otherwise not wish to go outside when it’s cold.

There are many ways you can work around getting your kids outside when it’s cold. For one, you must remember that you are the parent. A parent is the person in charge who sets down the rules of the home and can simply just demand that the kids get outdoors. Finding ways to get kids outdoors when it’s cold outside is a mere matter of working in a creative way that feels comfortable for your family. Kids won’t always jump at the idea of venturing outside when the snow is falling down, but you can work to entice them to get outdoors and enjoy this beautiful season.


Make sure you discuss what methods you will use to get the kids outdoors when it’s cold outside with your partner. Remain consistent and stand firm with the rules and expectations you have as a parent. The first couple of weeks may be challenging, but your kids will soon hop on board to realize their parents are serious and outdoor play is important regardless of the season, and don't forget your MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours, available in the apple sauce aisle at many local grocery stores.

Let's discuss: How do you get your kids to go outdoors when it's cold and have you tried the new MUSSELMAN'S Squeezables Sours?

  1. Outdoor activity is important to kids, but in the winter, it can be tough to get them excited about getting out there. These are excellent tips.

  2. An outdoor chore list is a great idea. Not only does it get the kids outside, but it gets some work done, as well. I'm a big fan of child labor. ;)

  3. These are all great ways to get the kid outdoors in the winter. It doesn't get too cold in Florida and when it was nice out, I would get my son to help me wash the cars.

  4. I have the hardest time to get the kids outside. The older they get, the harder it is.

  5. Times have really changed. When we were young, our parents had a hard time making us stay indoors regardless of the weather. Now, you have to pry the youngsters away from their gadgets! I love your suggestions of creating a chore list and rewarding them afterwards. I will let my daughter know about Musselman's Squeezable Sours. She might need it when she teaches her daughter about doing chores.
