active children in winter

Winter is the time of year when families spend more time indoors . To plan a little boredom and to save us children spend the day watching TV .

In the coldest time of year families spend more time indoors . If you do not want our family apoltrone we plan activities for children. It is also necessary to do things away from home.

Children playing at home

If the family stays home must try not to be all the time watching TV or doing nothing. At this time of year many children have holidays and they take forever and boring .

Parents can spend some time daily to study with children and playing with them . Board games, family , crafts , draw ... as parents we will be playing a little imagination .

Out on the road

Children need to go away from home and breathe air outside . In winter there are many family activities and especially at Christmas . Christmas playgrounds , children's theater , cinema or just go to have a drink .

An interesting idea is a family outing to the snow . Playing with the kids sledding or make a snowball battle is a nice way to enjoy this time of year with family. In this case , parents must protect children with appropriate clothing ( hat, scarf , gloves ..) , cocoa lipstick , moisturizers or sunscreen . Before leaving home, we check the weather forecast of the destination.

home in winter and heat saving

Having the home warm in winter can be very expensive if our home is not able . It's not just a matter of family economy , but also respect for the environment.

Having the home at a good temperature , insulated and energy saving , is the fórmua to overwinter more economically and take care of both family health and the environment . If the family takes a series of precuaciones , the winter we will be cheaper .

Analyzing the home

Each house has different needs . It's better than before winter 's check leaks in our house , poorly insulated windows , windows , curtains ... are elements that insulate the home from the cold and, if damaged , will increase our invoices .

Electrical equipment should be used with liability in home : smoke exhaust hot air can get home in an hour, the thermostat will help to regulate the consumption of heating , radiators should be used with head every degree you go down at home we will save 6 % of the electricity bill.

Heating the home with common sense

The proper temperature for children and families at home is around 20 º. That is that you do not need the heater on full blast , but use it as a supplement and try to wear comfortable clothing and warm to be home : blankets for the sofa , bathrobes , slippers go home ...

When ventilating the house , we should close the heating . Likewise, if we have a fireplace and we will not use it, we block the exit , so as not to exhaust warm air from the home. Turn off lights and appliances not to use also will lower our electricity bill .

If we have no heating at home, we have to consider the investment as medium to long term it will save you more expensive systems in the home.

Children in the World AIDS day

According to UNICEF in 2009 was 1.7 million AIDS infected children. These data conflict with the goal it has set for the next 5 years. A new set of drugs have to reach all mothers in the world at that time . UNICEF 's commitment is to achieve "a generation without AIDS."

empty home on holiday

If you decided to spend this holidays away from home with the family , take precautions before leaving home to find a surprise not around .

If the family goes on vacation and the home is not empty we must strive to demonstrate that our house is forsaken. At holiday time is when thefts increase , so the family must pay special attention to safety.

House prepared

Before leaving home we leave tied several things:

    Ask someone ( family member or neighbor ) to stop by our house to pick up the mail ( and water plants if the opportunity arises ) .
    Preventing away from home is clearly visible that is empty : leave half down shutters , some light on.
    If our house is on the ground floor , we check that can not be accessed through any window : we can use systems such as bars.
    Some tricks can make it appear that the house is inhabited : leave some clothes hanging , or timers that turn lights and music automatically.
    The family must be discreet , that only trusted people know of his departure . Also , do not leave messages on the answering machine informing it.

Other considerations in the home


    Close faucets and light.
    Disconnect electric home appliances .
    Check that all our household bills are paid.

If the household budget permitting, we can choose other security measures such as alarms , security doors, motion detectors , cameras we can see from the computer, etc ...
