Something to do in the Winter Months!
- Ice Fishing: If you don’t have the equipment, most of us know someone that does in the upper Midwest. If you have never tried ice fishing before, this is something to try at least once in your life and you might get hooked! (pun intended)
- Snow Tubing: Now this is fun and easy for most of us. You get pulled up the hill and sit and slide down the hill. It can be freeing and exciting to fly down the hill in a single or double tube. This is a great friends and family activity. Many places for tubing have a place to eat and to warm up, giving you real social time and memories to last a life-time.
- Cooking: Cooking different types of food and doing it with friends and family can be very fun and bond everyone together in a joint adventure with food. There are many cooking contests during our winters here in the upper-Midwest that we can partake in. There are options out and about such as; chili cooking & tasting contests, fish fry Fridays, Booya gatherings and batch baking as a group to try different family recipes.
- Card Stamping/Scrapbooking: This is something that can be fun, pass the time when it’s too cold outside and bring friends/family together to remember good times and make some Greeting Cards for upcoming celebrations, events or to simply keep in touch. You can share products to be a part of this hobby for that gathering or get into it and start purchasing your own supplies to enjoy this hobby on a cold winter day.
- Board Game Time: This is really fun time together with friends and family to connect, laugh, socialize, make a tradition and keep you sharp during those months where you don’t do as much mentally or physically.
- Arts and Crafts: Whether it be crocheting, wood working, painting, refurbishing or photography, it’s fun to find something that intrigues and inspires you during this time of year. Winter can be very cold, dreary, isolating and boring, so, finding a hobby or activities to participate in. It keeps you active and passes the time until Spring/Summer is here again.
The above options are only a sprinkle of what you could be during this hibernation season of Winter. Feel free to comment and give suggestions and ideas you might have. Thank you for reading our BLOG this week! See you next week.
