Winter showed up early this year!
Sometimes winter can be long, dark and boring. But it doesn’t have to be that way! There’s plenty to do outside – don’t let the cold discourage you from having fun.
Have a snowball fight. Go skiing (cross country or downhill), snowboarding, tobogganing or snowshoeing. Drink hot cocoa. Build a snowman. Make a snow angel or build a snow fort. There’s ice fishing or throw together a game of shinny outdoors.
When you get chilled and need to come inside after all that shovelling, you could bake some cookies and share them with friends. Cozy up in front of a roaring fire and watch the flames. Make a pot of mulled wine or spiced cider. Bake cinnamon rolls. Wear fuzzy slippers at home. Add some peppermint schnapps to your hot chocolate. Shop after Christmas sales (online, in your pjs). Watch the snow fall and listen to the wind howl on a chilly night.
