Outdoor Winter activities the whole family will love

Don’t let anyone tell you winter isn’t great for family time. Here are a few child-friendly ideas for fun outdoor activites.

If you go down to the woods today
A charming family walk in the woods is great and learning from it is even better. Watch out for animal tracks, pick leaves to create a herbarium, collect chestnuts, pine cones and nice rocks to paint at home, while you try to identify the multitude of sounds (birds, leaves falling from trees, small animals) around you.

Take care of the birds
Build, paint and decorate a small birdhouse to install in the garden or on the balcony. Teach the kids how to recognize birds through size, feather color and cooing (wikipedia, allaboutbirds.org and books offer excellent guidance).

Play scientists
Life is full of fun science experiments, especially outdoors. How long does it take for a glass of water to freeze? How long for a snowball to melt? How much snow must you use to fill a water bottle? Can you make fire with wooden sticks? You might even awaken an interest in science, thanks to these playful activities.

Enjoy the snow
Snowtime is definitely the best for family fun outdoors. Organize a snowman contest, asking each participant to decorate it with an unusual accessory, go ice skating or sledging, start a giant snowball fight and form snow angels by laying in the snow and flapping arms and legs. Followed by a warm cup of cocoa at home, while everybody’s clothes are drying.

Embrace the city
Organize a day trip in the city with defined stops to take family pictures. Next summer, relive the route to take pictures at the same spots, but with different weather and light. This excursion can become a seasonal family tradition and will make you rediscover the city you thought you knew so well.

Before you know it, you’ll stop missing summer all winter long!
