I am sharing my top Favorite things to do in winter. Know it all! It is cold out there! Snow is on trees, on sidewalks and on cars which only means one thing. It is winter time. Instead of being all bumped about all the snow, embrace it! As a Canadian, I know a little something about winters because it comes around every year. You kind of have to learn to love winter at least a little bit here. I am going to let you in on a little secret, I love summer and spring. I am a warm climate kind of baby so I can catch a little winter blues from time to time. Mostly when it is March and I still see snow.
However, I don’t want any winter blues for you. With all the fun you can have there is really lots you can do to occupy yourself in the colder weather. Let dive into some winter activities to do.
Favourite Outdoor Winter Activites
Who doesn’t love building a snowman! My childhood memories consist of creating awesome snowmen at school and on weekends in my backyard. All you really need is sticks, imagination, scarf, carrot for the nose and rocks to create buttons. There is really no wrong way to make it. Not only is this a fantastic activity for kids but also a great one to do with the family.
Snow Ball Fight
Take cover! Snowball fighting is a must in the winter time. Who doesn’t love running around throwing snowballs around at your friends and family? Kids love it when they get the ultimate revenge with an unexpected snowball fight towards their parents. It takes one snowball to really start this playful activity.
Favourite Winter Sweet Treats
Can you smell the cookies come from the kitchen oven? I love all the sweet goodies that come from the kitchen. Friends bring all kinds of goodies to work and home that can get you to start unloosing your belt a bit. Cupcakes, cake, lots and lots of cookies. I love baking but love it better when someone else is baking the soft chewy cookies.
Popcorn! Not that you have to have this snack only in winter but I sure love having this warm snack the most when it is cold. I enjoy mine when I watch the Sound of Music which is my personal favorite movie of all time. I know the songs like the back of my hand and watch it every year when it snows so I need a buttery treat such as Skinny Pop. If you want to spice up your movie nights this winter then look no further than pairing some popcorn with a drink. Cheers to a new holiday tradition. Check out some ideas below!
Favourite At Home Winter Activities
Wear Cozy Sweater
Winter is all about the sweaters. I mean what else is going to keep you warm in this type of weather. At work, you can catch me always wearing a cardigan, in all types of styles. At home, I like to kick it up a notch with fuzzy sweaters and hoodies with awesome saying. Even though I am an adult, I like to bring my inner child and have inspirational words on my sweaters. On a simple day, I will wear my favorite sweater for like three days.
Wear Fuzzy Socks
Blue, striped or overall cute, I love them all. I can’t help but wear my most soft, most cute and most fuzzy socks. Forget the slippers when you have many socks to choose from. It makes your feet look good while protecting them from the cold ground. Next, to fuzzy socks, there is a must for long socks when off to work. Both are my favorites.
Watch Snow Fall
I have to say that I love taking a moment to watch the snow fall from my bedroom window or when I am sitting on the passenger side of a car. It is that moment when the snow is fall that the city seems to be at it’s most calm. Little white snowflakes taking over the city with its beauty and collecting on the ground so that we can have some winter activities. It is that snow globe kind of feeling.
Curl up in a Blanket
Along with all of my favorite things, winter could not be winter without curling up somewhere in your home with a blanket. My place can get cold so having a blanket is essential regardless since I don’t have a nifty fireplace in my home. If I did I would be right there next to fireplace curled up in a blanket.
Alright, that is all of my favorite things to do in winter. Like I mentioned before, why be blue about the weather when you can have some fun. Think about all your favorite things to do during this season and do it! Share with me some of your favorite things. While you are here, grab yourself a free open list for your winter goals!
