  1. Love that you’ve got a mix of indoor and outdoor suggestions here! Winter is the perfect time to cosy up with a book, though I never get to build a snowman because the snow is rubbish here (if it even settles).

  2. I feel like I’m running out of time to do all the Christmas stuff I want to do! My goal today is to get some cookie recipes together and try making some Christmas cookies with my sons this weekend! ❤

  3. These are some great ideas, and I love that you’ve got a mix of indoor and outdoor activities. I’m hoping to go ice skating at a local Christmas market this Sunday, hich should be fun, I’ve only ever been once. I can’t remember the last time I built a snowman! So that may need to happen this Winter.

  4. We made a giant snow ball one year by rolling it down the hill behind our house. It was taller than me so, unfortunately, we could not make it into a snowman without discovering a giant! But I do so love making little snow people all around the yard. 🙂

    As for board games, we love them in our family!

  5. These are great ideas. I’ve already done a few thing on this list like decorate both inside and out, wrapped present, listen to Christmas music, and made our own Christmas wreath. I’m hope I can do a few more of these activities soon.

  6. I love these winter activities! If we have snow in the city, I would love to build all sorts of snow figures, hehe. You can’t go wrong with going to a Christmas market, ever!!! Mmmm, a hot chocolate on a cold day is the best. These activities are great for all sorts of conditions. Thanks for sharing!
