Having fun and spending time together as a family is important. The more time you spend together, the stronger the relationships you can build. Strong family relationships lead to more open, honest communication and a healthy support system.
There are plenty of things to do together throughout the year, even in the winter. Here are six fun family winter activities you can do this snowy season.
1. Go Ice Skating
Whether you're a family of beginners or long-time skating enthusiasts, everyone will have fun learning new tricks and motions. Plus, ice skating is a great way to stay healthy and active during the colder months. It can improve your balance, coordination and muscle strength.
2. Movie Night
Cold weather makes for the ideal movie night setting. Decide on a list of movies you want to watch together as a family and make a variety of movie snacks to enjoy while you watch. Make your living room extra cozy with comfortable blankets and pillows and consider sipping on hot cocoa.
3. Go Bowling
Need a kid-friendly activity for when the cold weather hits? Check out your local bowling alley. Bowling is an activity that the whole family can do together. Some bowling alleys even have special, kid-friendly lanes.
Volunteering in the winter — especially near the holiday season — is a popular and rewarding family-friendly activity. Teach your family the importance of giving back by seeking out local needs. For example, you can visit your neighbors and offer to shovel snow from their sidewalks or send greeting cards to overseas members of the military.
5. Take In a Sports Game
One fun activity is taking in a winter sports game together, like hockey or professional ice skating. Watching sports together fosters a spirit of healthy competition. Plus, watching a game may even spark a new interest in your child and inspire them to participate in a winter sport.
6. Visit a Local Sports Center
A local indoor sports and activity center for kids is your destination for fun activities this winter. Indoor sports centers provide a safe way to have fun and get active, all while staying warm. Look for a sports center that offers something for every age, including children and adults.
