There are so many fun outdoor activities for spring and summer, but what about winter? If you are tired of sledding and building snowmen, you might be ready for something new to do in the snow. I have a few favorite activities you will enjoy trying with your siblings or friends.
Instead of snowmen, create a wonderland of bunnies, caterpillars, bears, penguins and other creatures in your yard. A scavenger hunt is a fun game to play. Freeze colored water into ice cubes and hide them around your snowy yard. Whoever finds the most cubes wins.
Snow is easy to mold, making it perfect for creating a miniature golf course. Use your boots and shovels to create paths, hills and golf holes. You can also play Strike Out, a pitching contest where players try to knock down a pyramid of cans on a snow base with the fewest throws. Or take funny pictures standing behind a headless snowman.
