SNOWMOBILING FUN WITH THE KIDS
Fun Activities to do with the
Kids while Snowmobiling
(Thanks go to LG from Ontario for
offering these suggestions to be included in
Let the kids help plan the route with the use of trail maps
which are obtained when you purchase your trail pass or from your local
snowmobile club. Mark out points of interest; places to stop
for breaks; etc. Bring the maps along on the ride and refer
to them along the way.
- Plan a lunch break at a country diner in one of the many
small towns along the trail system. This will allow the kids
a chance to get out of their snowsuits and warm up with some
soup. Bring along some cards or colouring books.
- Plan an outdoor winter picnic! Bring along a pack
containing newspaper, kindling, and matches in a water-tight
container. Choose an open site located a safe distance from
the trail and have the children assist to make a fire pit.
Of course you’ll need "snow chairs" to sit
around the fire and these can be packed in place while you
wait for the coals. Now enjoy those roasted weiners and
marshmallows! Ensure the fire is well extinguished before
hitting the trails and bring along a plastic bag to take
your garbage home with you.
- Consider a night expedition! Choose an open spot and stop
to look at all the stars and constellations. Bring along a
bedtime snack to munch on while you star gaze.
- Roll up some "crazy carpets" to take along on
the snowmobile. Look for a good sledding hill to stop for a
break and enjoy a different kind of fun.
- Make a "things to find" list prior to heading
out. This keeps the little ones on the back occupied.
Include such things as a farm animal; bunny tracks; a
bridge; a nest; a deer; etc. Review the findings when you
stop for a rest.
- Have the children bring along some bird seed or a suet
bag and search out the perfect place for a birdie buffet. You’ll
delight the kids and the birds.
