It might be a little colder outside but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on fun this season. With a whole host of festive treats on the agenda, there are endless ways to have fun with the kids this Winter. For inspiration, take a look at these exciting activities you can enjoy as a family and begin planning your Winter calendar now:
1. Make a Bird Feeder
With loads of handy online guides, you can put your craft skills to good use and create an extravagant bird feeder for the local wildlife to enjoy. Print out a guide to the local birdlife, or make your own, and you can have fun spotting all the varieties of birds that come to grab a bite.
2. Have a Movie Night
Movie nights are always a fun family activity, but they’re perfect for Wintertime. If you have a Smart TV or you’re using accessories, like a Firestick, be sure to connect via a VPN to increase your cybersecurity. No matter what equipment you’re using, finding the right combo is easier than you think. With so many festive, family favorites to enjoy, you can plan your movie nights in advance and count down until Christmas arrives.
3. Go for a Bike Ride
The temperature might have dropped but pedaling up a storm will keep you warm when you head out for a family bike ride. Explore the local area, plan an excursion of travel through unchartered territory as you scope out local riding trails. Grab a helmet and you’ve got everything you need for a fun-filled – and tiring – day.
4. Take a Virtual Tour
It may not be as easy as usual to visit attractions in 2020, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out altogether. Many museums are offering a range of virtual tours, so find an exhibition your kids will be interested in and enjoy watching them learn. From art and history to science and engineering, there are plenty of venues to explore.
5. Go on a Winter Scavenger Hunt
If you thought nature trails were reserved for Spring and Summer – think again. Your kids will have bundles of fun spotting Winter wildlife, especially if it’s snowed and there are footprints to follow. Alternatively, plan your own scavenger hunt at home or in your garden and hide an array of small treats for your kids to find.
Get Online this Winter
Although there are still plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, it might be a little harder than usual to take part in organized events and activities. However, many companies are making their events available online this year, so there are ways to keep up with your family traditions.
Take a look at the social calendar in your area and take your pick from the hundreds of local events that will be watchable online. In addition to this, you can log on and take part in events taking place on the other side of the country or the world, so there are numerous opportunities for you to have fun with your family this Winter.
