When the winter weather arrives, there is no reason to let it keep you indoors. Spending all winter indoors will drive you crazy. It is much better to embrace the snowy weather and learn how to enjoy yourself outside in the winter wonderland. The next time that the wintry weather hits, try doing one of these fun activities that make snowy surroundings a delight.

Building a Snowman

One of the most classic things to do in the snow is to build a snowman. It is a great family activity, but you don’t have to be a kid or have kids to build a snowman. Embrace your inner child and delight in one of the most wholesome winter activities. Follow these building tips to make your snowman the best it can be. When you are building figures with snow, keep in mind that you don’t have to limit them to the traditional snowman. You can build any type of sculpture you want with snow. Try building a castle, lion or alien out of the snow to try something different.

Go Sledding

The next time that a big winter storm front moves into your area, you should embrace the snowy weather by grabbing a sled and finding the nearest hill. Sledding is one of the most enjoyable things you can do when snow covers the ground. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the thrill of racing down a hill on a sled. You don’t have to have a fancy sled to go sledding. If you don’t have a sled handy in your garage when the wintry weather arrives, you can grab a piece of cardboard or a tarp to use as a makeshift sled. To make sledding, even more, fun, make sure to bring along a thermos a hot dark chocolate to warm you up and give you the energy to make a few more sledding runs when you get tired.

Make Ice Bubbles

Blowing bubbles is one of those classic warm weather activities that people automatically associate with summertime. As you start to blow bubbles in the winter, you will realize that it can be even more fun to get out the bubble wands in the cold weather. When you blow bubbles when the temperature is below freezing, ice crystals will form on the bubbles. This creates a beautiful effect that makes the bubbles turn into little ice spheres. They look like miniature ice planets that are dazzling to the eye. You can use this guide to have fun blowing your own ice bubbles this winter.

Head to the Mountain

The most incredible way to enjoy snowy weather is to head to the nearest mountain to go skiing or snowboarding. Making your way down the slopes is the best way to spend a winter’s day. You get some great exercise and have a lot of fun. If you are going to go skiing, you need to make sure that you have the right equipment. It is especially important to have a pair of snow boots that fit. You can use this handy ski boot size chart to make sure your boots fit perfectly on your next ski trip. You also want to have the right ski jacket, pants, gloves, and hat. Don’t forget to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the wind and the glare of the sunshine off the snow.

Winter weather is no excuse to sit inside. As you can see, there are lots of fun activities that you can do in the snow. Just make sure to bundle up in layers so that you can stay comfortable while you enjoy having fun outside when the snow falls.
