Lots of kids love to play in the snow. When they get older, lots of those kids will no longer love to play in the snow.
It’s a common sentiment for adults to be opposed to cold and wet snow. However, as long as there are kids, there will always
be a good reason for families to engage in snow activities. Here’s a list of some snow-themed entertainment.
- Ski/snowboarding: This is certainly the most expensive activity on the list. There is something thrilling about gliding over the snow at high speeds. Children can learn this winter season favorite at a young age, and be hooked for life.
- Sledding: No snow activity list is complete without sledding. Do yourself a favor and buy a legitimate sled. Trying to sled with your kids on a piece of cardboard is miserable.
- Snow Shoeing: If you enjoy hiking, you might enjoy snow shoeing. It’s only a one-time expense for the snow shoes, but being able to hike all year is the pay-off.
- Ice Castles/sculptures: Midway, UT is a destination to see ice castles, provided the weather permits. You can also keep an eye out for other seasonal ice sculptures in your local area.
- Snowball fight: Be aware that you may need to dry a tear or two if someone gets hit in the face, but snowball fights are a classic activity.
- Snow Angels: You know the drill. Lay down in the snow and flap your arms and legs like a bird.
- Snow Fort: This might be an opportunity to teach your kids about architecture. It’s also surprising how warm the inside of a fort can be, provided you can make one big enough to fit an adult inside.
- Snowman: Enough said.
- After Playing in the snow, there’s nothing better than hot coco in your warm house.
