Fantastic Ways to Celebrate Winter as a Family

Winter is such a great time for families to do things together. Here are some fantastic ways to celebrate winter as a family:


Sledding– Sledding is so much fun and something that can be enjoyed as a family. Whether you and your family have a saucer, tube, sled or toboggan, find a huge hill and enjoy hours of family fun. Be sure to bundle up in layers so everyone stays nice and warm.


Skiing– Even if you and your family don’t participate in downhill skiing, there is always cross-country skiing. If you don’t downhill ski but have always wanted to, now is the perfect time to learn. Kids can learn to ski as young as five years of age. Mostly all ski areas have slopes that are designed for young kids.


Ice skating– Ice skating is a world of fun. Kids can start ice skating as young as age 4 or 5. Ice skating is something that is tricky to learn at first but fun and addicting once they get the hang of it. Ensure that beginner ice skaters wear a helmet and maybe some knee pads.

Bowling– Bowling is a great activity if you just don’t want to go out in the cold but you still want to get out of the house. Engage in a competition game with parents against kids.

Arcade– Arcades are not just for summer you know? Give them each a handful of quarters and let them have fun and play the arcade games they enjoy. It is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon as a family.

Museums– What a perfect time to explore museums than the cold winter months. There are numerous types of museums including science, history and art.

Movie theater– Seeing a movie together as a family is ideal for days when the weather isn’t so great outside. Most movie theaters have family movies showing so grab the kids, get some popcorn and see a movie together.'

    I try ti keep the kids busy. Cabin fever is no fun.

  • I would love to take the kids skiing. We can’t wait for summer though!

  • We LOVE to get out and play in the winter. Living in Canada, you either learn to absolutely adore the snow or leave. We like the powder!

  • We used to love ice skating! Here isn’t a rink anymore in our town and we really miss it.

  • I used to go skiing when I was a teen. I’ve tried getting hubby to go, but he’s worried about weak ankles and skis. I may just have to take the kids myself!

  • I miss all the snow activities! We get very little snowfall here even though it can get pretty cold.
