Baby, it's cold outside. That's probably the understatement of the year, isn't' it?

This winter has not been one for the faint of heart when it comes to cold temperatures. And when you've got kids, it means you spend the better part of the day thinking about keeping them warm — on their way to school, at school, when they go out to play, and so on. So I was fascinated by this infographic by the British oil company Jones Oil about the science of staying warm. There's even a fun experiment you can do with your kids to show them how marine animals stay warm.
