Winter Activity idea List

Send a Message
Make a message in the snow with your feet in a wide open space.

Walk the Dog
Walking a dog is always entertaining when there is snow on the ground. If you don't have a dog, go walk somebody’s else's dog. I am sure the dog and the owner will appreciate the walk.

Make a Movie
Do you have access to a camera? Make a video about what activities you do for fun.

Ice Hockey
Playing hockey is such a great way to get exercise in the winter time.

Go to a Skating Rink
Now this might be an outdoor ice skating rink or an indoor roller rink. Even if you don't have skates - most places will have rentals.

Ice Skate on a Lake (only with an Adult and if the ice is deemed safe)

Build an Igloo
To build an igloo - you need plenty of snow on the ground and it needs ot be wind packed. Loose snow will not work for an igloo. For very detailed instructions
go here.

Snow Carving
You can build snow animals or statues wherever you like.

Make Snow Angels

Snow Blading
Snow blades are those tiny little skis that you strap on your feet and sail down the mountain. Most people learn pretty quick on these and are swooshing down the slopes in no time

Snow Fort
Depending on how much snow you have depends on how big the fort is going to be. This is a fun activity that will keep you busy all winter long.

Snow Painting
Paint the snow with non toxic water colors.

Well anybody can build a snowman but what is the special twist? Can you build the tallest snowman or the widest snowman? Can you build a whole family of snowmen?

Going up and down the hill with a toboggan is fantastic exercise and loads of fun. It is probably a good idea to wear a helmet and lots of clothes to keep you warm and pad the falls.

Cross Country Ski

Snow Piles
When the snow is light and fluffy build giant piles that you can jump into..

Downhill Skiing or Snowboarding
Downhill winter sports are an expensive sport but if your family can afford it go skiing as often as you can. It is my favorite sport and has brought more joy to me than any other winter activity.

Snow Tubing
Snow Tubing is very much like tobogganing but you have no control over the tube when it is screaming down the mountain. Just make sure oyu aim that tube towards a safe ending to your ride down the hill

Snowball Fight
Ok this one is not recommended at all because of the danger. But. Wear a helmet and some ski googles to avoid injury. Only have a snowball fight with people that want to have a snowball fight.

Christmas Light Tour
It seems like some people just love to set up crazy Christmas light displays. Not over the top fun but this winter activity can be very entertaining and a great boredom fighter.

Winter Olympics
Set up a series of events or obstacles courses. Try to carry a tray with glasses on it across a snowy field. Build obstacles out of snow. the Winter Olympics concept is only limited by your ability and imagination. Take it the extra step and arrange some medals for the awards ceremony.
