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).
Yeah same, we get some but sometimes we get none. Or just slush haha! Thank you for reading!
Great post😊full of good ideas. Wish we got more snow here, so want to go sledding🛷❄
I would love lots of snow at Christmas time
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
That will be nice! Enjoy baking!

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.
I am hoping to go ice skating soon too! I hope you have a lovely Christmas!
I haven’t had a snow fight in ages! I would love to do that this winter! If it snows… (I hate snow lol) great list of activities! Thank you for sharing!
Can you link your blog x
I do not do well with winter, but keeping my surroundings well lit and keeping busy with different projects really helps. Great post!

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!
That sounds like fun though! Yes, our family loves board games too. Thank you for reading!
Making gingerbread houses is my favorite winter activity and snowman
I hope you get to make one this year!
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.

Sounds like you have been festive already. Have a lovely Christmas! X
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!
Thank you for reading and commenting Nancy xxx
Haha! Thank you for reading. Can you link your blog
Gemma Jayne says

A great list with fun ideas! My favorite is hot chocolate and listening to christmas music. It always gets me in the spirit.
Della Driscoll says
These ideas gave me all the feels! I love the cosiness about winter, watching Christmas films and getting crafty xx
Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you get to do some of these.
Ooooh I love this list. Thank you for sharing! Some great things to do! Let’s see how many I can get done this winter.
This is a great list of activities! I’ll definitely be having a craft afternoon with my daughter soon & I also bought gingerbread cookies to make a house! I’m looking forward to visiting a Christmas market next month too!
This is a fun list! I haven’t made a winter-specific bucket list at this point but I do know that I want to get out winter camping with my husband and our dogs. It’s something I’ve always wanted to introduce my husband to (I did it a few times when I was younger and enjoyed it) and what better year to make it happen than the one where we can’t travel anywhere? Right? It’s an option that’s right here, local.
Hopefully you get to go camping. Thank you for reading and commenting.
Every year I always wrap my presents to Christmas songs and that’s when I really get into the spirit of Christmas! I love all these fun winter day activities you’ve listed! x
