Whether you are trying to stay warm inside or enjoy the snow outdoors, here are just a few activities your family can partake in this winter.
Go snow tubing
Visit your local ski resort to go snow tubing. The whole family can enjoy this thrilling snow activity without the risk or skill required for snowboarding or skiing.
Play board games
If it is too cold and windy outdoors, have a family game night indoors with your favorite board games!
Enjoy a day or evening at the bowling alley as a fun way to enjoy a cold winter day.
Go ice skating
Enjoy a fun winter activity that doesn’t require the weather to be a nice winter day at the ice rink!
Once the snow falls, go enjoy a day of sledding outside. Make sure to stay safe and have fun!
In order to stay warm from the cold outdoors, bake your favorite treats during this holiday season. Cookies, brownies, cupcakes, and more! You can even try making some homemade hot chocolate.
Arts and crafts
Enjoy some time inside by making snowflakes, snowmen, and other winter characters out of paper or cardboard.
Spice up Thanksgiving with some new recipes to enjoy all the holiday foods you love with a twist.
Get your serving of cranberry sauce served up with some extra flavor. Using pre-made biscuit dough, place a cube of brie into the middle of your biscuit. Then top the brie with a spoonful of cranberry sauce. Finally, bake them in the oven with the directed time and temperature for the dough.
Mashed sweet potatoes
Change up your ordinary mashed potatoes for mashed sweet potatoes! This dish can be made with butter and seasonings to go with dinner or add some brown sugar and cinnamon for dessert!
Apple pie salsa and chips
Create a dish of apple pie filling and put it in a small bowl. Serve it with a plate of cinnamon flavored chips or crisps to have apple salsa!
Make your usual stuffing recipe, but do not transfer it into your turkey. Place it into a bowl and shape little circles together to fit into your muffin dish. Use an egg or butter to get the stuffing to hold together in a ball. Bake until golden brown.
Brown your brussels sprouts in olive oil and season with salt to taste. Add butter, chicken stock, and shallots to accentuate the flavor of the brussels sprouts and cook until soft and tender.
Using candy eyes and candy corn, create a face and a tail of feathers on an Oreo using frosting as glue to stick the pieces on.
Pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies
Make a batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookies and mix pumpkin puree into the batter!
