The great outdoors is a great place to exercise some fun with your family, and winter isn’t shy about providing a number of unique opportunities to that end. Here are a few fun winter activities that can be enjoyed in the winter season.
You don’t have to brave the wilderness to experience the joy of a campfire. Setting one up safely is an important process, but once you’ve constructed your fire ring, you can bust out the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate for s’mores. Picking the best stick is always an exciting event, and you can make a tradition out of judging the best stick to roast marshmallows over. If s’mores aren’t your thing, make it a storytime! Share scary stories over the campfire or gossip with friends or simply enjoy the cozy warmth of the fire and read a book by its light. It’s very rewarding to step outside. Make some memories out of it!
Snow brings with it a host of exciting new opportunities. How can you resist trying out all the powdery, slippery fun that can be had? But making the most of a good snowfall can be hard. Everybody knows the basics: make a snowman, hold a snowball fight, enjoy the pretty sights. But what about dog sledding? You don’t have to be part of the Iditarod to make a good dog sledding race. All you need is a dog, a sled, a leash, and someone who wants to have fun. The sled can be anything from a surfboard to a trash can, so don’t be afraid to get creative! Just hold on to the leash, and have someone call your dog’s name or use some other method in tempting them to race around your yard. Two dogs can make for a proper race, or a more efficient engine for your dog sled.
What would be more memorable than setting up a snow cone bar? All you need is a few flavors of syrup and enough snow to comfortably scoop it from the ground. You’ll want there to be a few inches for best results, and be careful of debris. (If you’ve scratched the ground, you’ve gone too far.) But once you’ve scooped up enough fresh snow, plop it into the container of your choice and pour away! It’s not all that different from making s’mores, except that it’s cold and doesn’t even need a stick nearby to work.
