Ten “Must Do” Winter Family Activities

  • Museums – Everything old is new again when you visit a museum, especially for the youngsters in your family. OK, so you’ve been to the Carnegie a gazillion times, but this time, see it through the eyes of a child.
  • Play Board Games – Have a good old-fashioned Family Game Night!  Board games are a great way to create interaction. Set up a game table and play whenever you get the chance. It sure beats everyone sitting around staring at the television. And if you really want to get in good with the kiddos, make a tent fort with blankets and play under there by flashlight. It’s guaranteed to make a memory.Seasons_Winter
  • Take Up Spelaeology – In layman’s terms, go cave exploring.  Visit one of the caverns in our area and make sure you have experts lead the way if it is new to you.
  • Build a Puzzle – Puzzles can be done at leisure and when they’re completed, everyone in the family feels a sense of pride. If you particularly like the puzzle, you can preserve it with some sort of puzzle glue and frame it. The puzzle masters can even autograph the back.
  • Skating – Whether with wheels or blades, skating can be great fun — if you don’t fall down.
  • Sledding – Whether in a park specifically designed for sledding, or in your own backyard, sled riding is an age-old classic for kids of all ages to have fun!  Just make sure there isn’t any vehicle traffic where you will be.
  • Take an Art Class – Who knows, there might be a Rembrandt in your group. If not, that’s ok.  But your family will probably appreciate the arts and each other a little more.
  • Pay It Forward – Make it a family project to do a random act of kindness, and then gather to share the experience.
  • Visit the Library – If libraries only housed books, that would be enough, but the library offers so much more. I think you will be amazed.
  • Enjoy the Holidays  – Memories made during the holidays are extra-special. Twenty years from now, the kids won’t remember what gift they got that year, but they will certainly remember a family outing to one of the area’s holiday events.
