Outdoor Winter Fun with Your Kids

January 23, 2018

It can seem challenging to stay active with the kids during the winter weather, but there are so many outdoor activities that you can take advantage of to get everyone off the couch and having fun. If you’re searching for some ideas for outdoor winter fun with your kids this season, here are some activities to get you inspired!

Make Your Finest Snow Angels

Sometimes, the simplest activities are really the best, and snow angels are always a classic outdoor activity. After a big snowstorm, bundle up the kids, get outside and get them to lie down and wave their arms and legs around to create their best snow angels. This simple activity gets them out enjoying the fresh air and keeps those arms and legs moving for a little exercise.

 Create A Treasure Hunt

Who says treasure hunts have to be reserved for Easter? With all that snow in your backyard, it’s the perfect time to gather some treasures, like candy or chocolates, and hide them around your yard. Then grab the kids and tell them to start hunting. We guarantee they’ll be up and out the door in no time.

Go On A Winter Hike

The winter is a beautiful time of year as long as you’re bundled up well. And there’s no better way to really embrace the magical winter wonderland than by taking a leisurely stroll through some scenic trails. You can pack a bag with some snacks and hot chocolate, and take in the stunning snow-dusted trees or keep an eye open for any animal tracks to follow.

Go Sledding, Skating or Skiing

Grab the sled, skates or skis and enjoy some outdoor fun with your kids on the hills or rink. You can rent skis or skates, or bring your sled along to the nearest snowy hillside and zip down with the kids. Then head to a local coffee shop afterward to warm up with some treats and hot chocolate.

Build A Family Of Snowman

Building snowmen together is another great way to have some family fun together outside. You can work together and get creative with some items from inside to decorate your very own unique family of snowmen.

Outdoor winter fun with your kids is easier than you think. Even with the winter weather, there are a ton of fun activities you can enjoy, even right from your own backyard. So be sure to get outside this season with the family and embrace all that the winter has to offer.
