The leaves have mostly fallen from the trees and the birds have flown south, signs that winter is approaching. Instead of just waiting for the snow to melt and the beach weather to return, it's better to make a winter bucket list full of enjoyable cold-weather activities. Put on your snow boots, wear some gloves, and take advantage of the change in season.
Are you brave enough to go outside and endure the cold? Here are some ideas for you!
Bask in the gorgeous view by walking in the park, biking or jogging is also great. Just make sure to bundle up to stay warm.
Try outdoor sports. From ice skating to snowboarding, sledding, and skiing, there are tons of fun things to do in the snow.
Make a snowman or snow angel. Roll and pat snow to build a snowman. You can also make it into a contest and see who builds the craftiest Frosty. If you are brave enough to lie on the snow, try making the classic snow angel!
If you are more of an indoor person once the temperature drops, we have several fun suggestions for you!
Watch the snowfall. Stay behind the comfort of your window, sipping a hot drink while admiring the white snow falling from the sky.
Try out new recipes. Are you bored with the usual hot cocoa drink? Spice it up and look up other fun and delicious drinks and snacks perfect for the cold weather. It is also a good time to bake cookies and pies for the whole family to share.
Camp out in the living room. Make a fort and snuggle together, sharing stories and eating food. You can also watch winter-themed movies!
Plan a game night. Pick games where many people can join, like Bingo and Scrabble. Offer prizes for the winners to make it more exciting.
There is no shortage of things to do during the cold season. The people you are with matter most when planning for a memorable and fun winter.
