The seasonal change from fall to winter might mean frigid temperatures and shorter bouts of daylight, but it also means tons of fun activities that only come around this time of year! To get in the spirit, we compiled a list of our absolute favorite wintry activities. See what we came up with and post your own favorites in the comments!
Reading a good book by the fire.
As if flying through a real page-turner isn’t satisfying enough, doing so next to a crackling fire tops the list of our favorite activities. The only thing left to decide is….which book?
Building a snowman.
Whether it’s a standard three-tiered version or something more intricate, building a snowman might be the most fun way to channel your inner child.
Sledding down the biggest hill on campus.
We take back our previous statement. This might be the most fun way to channel your inner child.
Making your favorite comfort food.
The best way to fight off the icy weather is with a piping hot bowl of your favorite comfort food! Gooey mac ‘n’ cheese, buttery mashed potatoes, cold-fighting chicken noodle soup – the choice is yours!
Even if you spend more time slipping on the ice than gliding across the ice, skating is a great way to enjoy the chilly weather AND get some exercise.
Ordering some exciting new goodies all while avoiding swarms of crazed shoppers? Sounds like a win-win.
Trying out new winter recipes.
If it’s too cold to venture out, you might as well try something new inside!
Looking at holiday lights.
Make it your mission to find the brightest, boldest, most ‘gram-worthy house in your town! It’s also a a great excuse to drive around with old friends.
Window shopping is basically the opposite of online shopping, but it’s just as much fun. You spend less money and it’s a great excuse to get out and go for a stroll.
