5 Fun Things to Do Outside This Winter


Just because the weather outside is frightful doesn’t mean that you should shy away from it. In fact, there are so many winter activities that you can do that you may even enjoy this season more than summer or spring.

If you’re having a hard time coming up with some fun outdoor activities this winter, let us help you. Before you head out, however, be sure to download and check free weather apps to see if things will get worse, so you aren’t stuck in the cold.

Go Sledding

This popular pastime is perfect for a snow day where you have fresh powder and a hill from which you can slide down. Your sled doesn’t have to be perfect; it just has to glide over the snow.

Go Skiing

If you’re looking for more of a rush, then downhill skiing is an excellent way to get your thrills while enjoying the cold weather. Check snow weather apps to see when snow is coming so you can maximize your fun.

Build a Snowman

Assuming that you have more snow than you know what to do with, building a snowman (or snow person) is a fantastic way to get rid of the mounds of white powder clogging up your driveway or sidewalk. Pay attention to those free weather apps to see if more is coming or if your sculpture will be thawed anytime soon.

Make an Igloo

If you are handy at making snow blocks, then you can build all kinds of structures around your house. In fact, there are even machines that can make the blocks for you so that you can live like an Inuit for a while.

Paint the Snow

The great thing about snow is that it absorbs colors really well. In this case, all you have to do is fill spray bottles with dyed water, and you can paint your front yard quickly and effortlessly. Best of all, if it snows again you have a blank canvas on which to create another masterpiece.
