The winter is a great time of year, it may not be all warmth and sunshine like the summer but it definitely gives you time to grow close with the ones you love. Whether you want to go out and do things in the cold winter months or you want to stay in instead we’ve got great ideas for what to do this winter.
Staying in during the winter
If you are trying to stay in this winter what better way to do it than by spending time with those you love. In this day and age our lives are filled with distractions, complications and hectic schedules so set aside a night to lose the phones and get back in touch with each other. We would suggest snuggling by a warm fire, getting the family together to play a game, or making cookies. The winter is the one true time of the year when the weather outside means that people want to stay in. Staying in doesn’t mean that you should resort to watching TV on the couch. Try to reminisce of the rustic olden days when being with family was enough to keep you warm. If you have a night with just you and your honey then light a fire, maybe a few candles too and cuddle under a blanket and share stories, memories, and dreams. Another great thing to do if you have spare time in the winter season is to play games. Nothing is better than sharing time together and playing games is a great way to pass the time. You can find all kinds of board games for 2+ players that will bring your whole group closer together. If you want to spread some holiday cheer make cookies! Cookies are great because you can bring them to parties, give them as gifts and no matter your age it’s still fun to decorate them! You can make cookies just you and a few friends, with your whole family or just with one other person, which gives you something to do while you catch up and talk.
Going out even in the cold
If you are brave enough to go out into the cold winter weather then you may be wondering what activities to do. Some of my favorite winter activities are definitely going ice skating, doing a winter photo shoot, and going to check out the local winter decorations. Ice skating and the winter go hand in hand is a great activity for kids and adults alike it’s never too late to try it and it’s great for a full family or even a simple date activity just the two of you. Doing a winter photo shoot is great for anyone interested in photography or anyone who loves to capture the moment. By going out either in the city or in the country you can capture the landscape and world as a snow covered wonderland, then you can print off your images and use them as decoration around the house or even send them out as holiday cards. Lastly a great thing to do around the holidays and in the winter is to visit the areas with very decorated homes! In my family we have contests to see who can spot the most decorated house then we share them as a family when we get together to look at all the decorations. It’s a great way to spend time around your town or neighborhood and share what you like about each house you find!
