The month of December is finally here! This may be a stressful time for some of us with the holidays coming up and the need to buy gifts for our loved ones. So we put together a list of 5 of our favorite winter activities to do with your family and friends which require little to no money at all, because remember love weighs more than gold.
#1: Build a Snowman: Start off the first snowfall of the year by building a nice big snowman! No one will ever be to old to have fun in the snow building a fun and friendly Frosty! Snowman building takes more that two hands to build so this is a perfect activity to do with the whole family. Gear up and put on your winter boots, jackets, and mittens and venture out in the winter wonderland. Spice up your completed Frosty the Snowman with a carrot nose, stick arms, and let him borrow your old winter gear for a well put together look!
#2: Skiing, Snowboarding, & Sledding: Hit up the slopes with family and friends and catch some air while skiing, snowboarding, or sledding. Never have skied or snowboarded before? No worries, check out your local ski resort for a beginner lesson or find a friend that can teach you at little to no cost! Make sure to stay safe and well informed on the proper techniques before you hit the hills to ensure your safety so you can make it back to the lodge at the end of the night for a nice cup of hot chocolate and relaxation.
#3: Bake: Get in preparation for “Santa” to come, and take on the kitchen and bake! Everyone loves a nice warm, chewy chocolate cookie. Spend a relaxing day baking by yourself and jamming out to christmas music or get a group of family and friends to come over to help! Spending time baking with loved ones can be such a rewarding time allowing you to make memories that will last a lifetime, and of course making amazing cookies but we know those won't last a lifetime, they might be so good that they won't even last through the night!
#4: Clean out your closet: The holiday season is not only a time to receive but it is also a time to give. Giving back to families throughout your community can be a great way to help boost your community life up. Clean out your closet and make a pile of old clothes, shoes, and household items you do not use anymore and give them to your local homeless shelter, thrift store, or families you know personally that could use a helping hand this season. Everyone wants to receive gifts during the holiday season but sometimes the best gifts are to help ones in need.
#5: Christmas movie marathon: Put on your pajamas and slippers and cuddle up by the fireplace in your favorite cozy blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and a bowl of popcorn with your loved ones. Spending time watching Christmas movies will get you excited for the upcoming holidays and get you in that Christmas spirit. Here is a list of just a few of our favorite holiday movies: Elf, The Santa Clause, Frosty the Snowman, A Christmas Story, and It’s a Wonderful Life.
We hope we could help with your winter adventure agenda to make this December one to remember, by providing you with a few fun activities to do this winter season at little to no cost!
