6 Family-Friendly Winter Activities
Spending time with family is always fun, no matter the season!
While the chilly winds and freezing temperatures might deter some Canadians from heading outdoors in the winter, the cold season provides plenty of great opportunities to have fun as a family.
Whether you enjoy getting active with seasonal sports or you prefer bundling up next to a cozy fire, the Canadian winter offers something for everyone!
Here are a few suggestions that will make you fall in love with wintertime:
- Play in the snow
The possibilities for fun when a snow day comes around are almost endless; You can build a snowman or a snow fort, make snow angels, host a snowball fight, go sledding or tubing and so on. Playing in the snow is an easy (and economical!) way to amuse the whole family this winter.
- Get active
Enjoy all the sports that you don’t get to experience during the summer like skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, outdoor skating, pond hockey, ice fishing, etc.
- Attend a festival or carnival
Create lasting family memories by checking out the winter festivals and carnivals taking place in your community. These family-oriented celebrations offer up a ton of fun activities for all ages.
- Experience a sugar shack
Nothing screams “Canada” like a good ol’ trip to a sugar shack! Indulge in the traditional maple delights and enjoy the on-site activities as a family.
- Get cozy
Winter is a great time to do some cocooning, especially when weather conditions are bad. Try bundling up next to a cozy fire in your pyjamas and hosting a family movie marathon. For sustenance, we suggest relying on your comfort food staples!
- Make arts & crafts
No list would be complete without including some seasonal arts & crafts projects! From handmade paper snowflakes to homemade snow globes, let your creativity (or Pinterest) inspire you! And it doesn’t just stop at arts and crafts; Add seasonal touches to your sweet treats too like candy cane hot chocolates or snowman cookies.
And once your busy winter day is over, you can rely on our Arnicare line to help relieve your muscle & joint pain as well as any bumps & bruises you (or your kids) may have endured.
