5 Fun Winter Activities To Try This Year

Many of us tend to stay inside when temperatures drop, but the truth is there's a bunch of entertaining winter activities (both outdoors and indoors). While you may think it's too early to think about winter activities, the first snowfall is expected to take place as early as December in MD. Here are some fun winter activities to do this year!

Build a snowman

This is a classic activity for you and your family. All you have to do is gather a few things from around the house (a hat, scarf, and carrot), and you've got all you need to build a snowman! It's a fun way for your children to get creative and have a photo-op after!

Have a snowball fight

A snowball fight is a perfect activity to get the whole family moving, and who doesn't love a friendly competition? It can be as simple as throwing a few snowballs back and forth or involving forts, rules, and strategy. 

Go tubing or sledding

You should take advantage of any nearby hills and head on over with your sled or tube. You can also visit a nearby ski resort. Sledding and tubing are both exhilarating activities for the young and old. 

Go ice skating

Ice skating outside can be a magical and wonderful experience, and it's an excellent activity for solo individuals, families, or couples. If you have a lake or pond nearby that is safe to skate over, take advantage of it. Or you can visit an outdoor rink. 

Go snowshoeing

Snowshoeing is a form of hiking in which you wear special footwear to disperse your weight to keep you from falling in the snow. It's also great exercise and inexpensive. 

Go skiing or snowboarding

Skiing and snowboarding are two of the most popular winter sports globally, and it is a popular activity found at the majority of ski resorts. It's a thrilling activity, and the slopes range in difficulty. You'll have no trouble finding the right ski resort for your needs!
