Just because the snow hasn’t fallen (yet…) doesn’t mean that we can’t plan for some fun outdoor activities to do in cold weather to keep our family entertained! Read below for some fun ideas to get the kids out of the house and enjoying the great outdoors.
Think classic snow day activities of childhoods past…building forts, snowball fights and snow angels. Encouraging kids to search out items in nature to help assemble a snowman will inspire creativity and fun. For a new twist on old classics, try a winter themed nature scavenger hunt.
Kids love to help with chores and tasks (no really!) and shoveling snow is no different. For the little ones, let them use a child-sized shovel to pitch in. For older kids, encourage them to help out elderly neighbors and volunteer to shovel driveways and walkways.
Night Time Drives
Take a drive around the local communities after the sun sets to check out all the Christmas lights and holiday decorations. What a fun, and not to mention no cost, way to spend time together as a family!
Santa Claus is Coming to Town…
Want to get the family excited for the upcoming holiday season? One of our yearly favourite fun outdoor activities to do in cold weather is to check out the Town of Sylvan Lake Santa Claus parade and fireworks on November 25th, 2016.
There are many fun activities to do in the winter. Just remember it’s about spending time with family and having fun making new memories to warm you up on cold snowy days.
