Fun Winter Activities for your Snowy Weekend!

Published On: January 20th, 2023|Categories: News|

With all the snow that we have gotten lately, it is a perfect weekend to partake in some winter activities!

If you’re itching to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, the weather is supposed to be good this weekend, so it is the perfect time to do so!

Some outside activities you could do this weekend:

  • Take a hike. Just one of many places; Quarry Hill Nature Center in Rochester has rental equipment available for use if you are interested in testing out some cross-country skis or snowshoes. If not, take a walk around your local park! Most are plowed, and this lets you get out and breathe in the fresh air while getting some exercise!
  • Skate around. Check out a skating rink nearby, and glide on the ice for the afternoon!
  • Zip on down the hills. Head over to a big hill, and bring your sled! An afternoon full of fun for the whole family, except maybe when you have to trek back up the hill!
  • Build a snowman.. or have a snowball fight! Both easy ways to get outside and something that you can do in your front yard. These are options that allow you to get inside quick once you get cold!

Whatever you choose to do, it is important to get some fresh air, even if you just take a quick walk around the block. If you prefer to stay inside though, here are some inside activities you could do:

  • Try a new recipe. This is always a fun task, and you could even make it a challenge to use up some ingredients that you have leftover!
  • Cozy up on the couch. Pull out your favorite blanket, get cozy on the couch, and turn on a movie. To pull together your cozy day, fill up your best mug with some hot cocoa and pop some popcorn!
  • Write a letter. Do you have a friend or family member that you haven’t been able to see for a while because of the weather? Spend the chilly weekend writing a letter to them! Everybody loves receiving snail mail, and they may even send you one back.
  • Read a book. Do you have books that you have been meaning to read, but just haven’t got to it? Now is your chance! Snuggle up under a fluffy blanket on the couch and read your weekend away!
