6 Sensational Winter Activities Your Family Will Really LoveWinter has arrived

Last Monday we woke up to find that snow had transformed the landscape into a winter wonderland. My inner child still delights in that first snowfall each year.

There is something magical about the transformation and when the sun shines it is absolutely beautiful. Winter in northern climes can be challenging. Winter comes early and leaves late.

Still snow is a lot of fun when you don’t have to shovel it! If the temperatures aren’t too frigid, bundle up the family and head outside for some winter fun together.

It time for some awesome winter activities!

  1. This is a fun post! I especially like the bird feeder ideas. The birds become the only color we see in the winter when the flowers are dormant. It is fun to watch them through the window!

    1. I love watching the birds too. They do brighten up the yard and it is fun to see their antics.

  2. I love, love ice lanterns! So pretty on a dark winter’s night. They are calling for a snow storm tonight where I live (western canada) so we will see what it is like outside in the morning. Visiting via “charliebethwalkers’ link up from over at http://www.ritewhileucan.com

    1. Me too!! Me tooo! They are so pretty and as we approach the winter solstice we need all the light we can get!

  3. Thank you for linking up to Family Friday. I love the bird feeder idea. My little guy is in love with cardinals, and that would be a fun project for him.
