How To Have Fun In The Snow
Tired of driving throught the white sludge and want to know how to have fun in the snow instead? There are many ways to have fun in the snow that can harken back your inner child. Read below for some tips and suggestions.
- Snow Angels The ultimate simple and child-like activity for fun in the snow. Lie down on a clean patch of snow (make sure it's not yellow!) and move your arms and legs as if you were doing jumping jacks on the ground. You've now made yourself a snow angel.
- Build a snowman Another great child-like activity is to build a snowman. Get creative with your masterpiece. Use food coloring to color the snow
- Have a snow ball fight Snow ball fights can get pretty rowdy, especially if they end up being more like ice balls! Try not to get too carried away with this activity and remember the main goal is to have fun in the snow.
- Make an igloo Building an igloo takes a bit more skill than building a snow man but it can still be fun in the snow and useful, too. If you find yourself trekking the mountains or going snowshoeing, building an igloo is a great way to keep warm if you need to spend a night.
- Go sledding With a nice sized hill and some friends, sledding can be a wonderful way to have fun in the snow at any age.
- Photography Snow may be annoying to drive in, but it is absolutely beautiful and photogenic. Take advantage of the winter wonderland and get outside to take pictures. Even just walking around with your camera in hand can be a fun and rewarding exercise that might even give you a decent work out.
- Go snowshoeing Snowshoeing is essentially hiking in the snow. To do this properly, you're going to need snow shoes which help you stay on top of the snow as you walk. If you love hiking, you'll love snowshoeing!
- Try wintersports Wintersports such as cross country skiing or snowboarding are very popular and done by people of all ages. There are many ways to get into these recreational sports, but living close to the mountains is a good way to start.
