Winter Activities for the Whole Family

As the days get colder and wetter and the nights get darker we can often be at a loss for what to do as a family. But, this shouldn’t be the case.

Whether you’re indoors or out, we’ve highlighted a few simple things you can do as a family, below.

Movie time

When the winter rolls around, as we all know, it can get a little chilly outside, and this year is expected to be colder than most. But, it doesn’t just get cold. The wind and rain often come out in force, and with the ever-present chance of snow, leaving the house may seem like a task.
Movie time

While you have to head out to school or work in the week, the weekends are a time for unwinding with the family. And there’s no better way of doing this indoors than with everyone putting on their comfy clothes, wrapping up in blankets on the sofa (or in the biggest bed in the house), grabbing the popcorn and popping on Christmas films. From Home Alone and The Santa Claus to The Grinch and The Polar Express, there’s so many to choose from you could do this every weekend. And there’s even space for the dog with comfy beds available from the likes of Orvis.

Outdoor adventures

Of course, it does help to get outdoors, and when it isn’t wet outside, walking around on a brisk winter day can be delightful.

Wrapping up warm, while taking the dog and maybe some bikes with you is a great way to spend a Sunday or Saturday afternoon exploring the local greenspaces. If it snows, why not make the most of it and do a little sledging down the nearest hill or make a snowman – helping to make those winter memories everyone will cherish forever.

And once you’re done, you can always wrap up and watch those Christmas films in the evening.

Getting crafty

Maybe you can’t get outside and you want something to do other than watch films. Well, get that craft box out and start getting creative.

From making homemade Christmas cards for grandparents to whipping up some salt dough decorations in the kitchen, before baking and painting them ready to hang on the tree, there are endless hours of fun to be hand creating this winter.

Bake off time

If you’re in the kitchen, then why not get baking as a family?

A fantastic way to bond with kids, you can make Christmas themed cookies or your favourite chocolate cakes together. While you enjoy the time mixing and shaping each item, before licking the bowl, at the end, you’ll have a selection of goodies to enjoy – maybe with a film?

No matter what you do this winter, whether it’s indoors or out, there are hours of fun to be had for the whole family.
