Fun in the Snow!

Are you looking for a fun way to spend a day with your family this winter? Don’t let the cold keep you inside all day, go outside and play in the snow! Here are a few fun activities to get you started!

  1. Build Snowmen together

Nothing brings the world of Frozen to life quite as much as building a snowman with your family! Grab a scarf, a carrot, some buttons, and whatever else you want to use to dress it up and get started! You can even build your own little snow family!

  1. Make your own snow forts

Gather together as much snow as possible and make a fort! It is easiest if you build it where snow is naturally collected during the winter like the corner of a yard. You can carve out tunnels, build walls, and make the snow fort of your dreams! The only limit is your imagination!

  1. Have a snowball fight

Put those snow forts to good use with a snowball fight! This has been a tradition for a very long time and is the perfect activity for children and adults of all ages!

  1. Go sledding

Grab your sled and make a trip to the closest hill, or maybe just your backyard! Sledding is easy and fun for the whole family. You could even build a few jumps to change things up a bit!

Now that you have some ideas, go spend some quality time with your family! These are a great way to get some fresh air while creating memories that will last a lifetime!
