Some ideas for winter fun activities:

  • Card games such as Rummy and Canasta can be played.

  • Board games like Monopoly, The Game of Life and Triond are fun.

  • A movie night complete with soda and air popped corn costs little, especially when renting from a Blockbuster box for a buck a movie.

  • With a few plastic block makers, your family will have a great time building snow forts.

  • You can also spend a day making a snow family.

  • Snowball fight!!!! Start one of these secretly, when the children are all outside.

  • A sledding party is great fun! Bring hot chocolate and paper cups for everyone. Each family can bring something different, such as cookies or coffee for the parents.

  • An ice skating party can be done the same way.

There are ways to save money on the activities listed above. For instance:

  • Ice skates can be found cheap at yard sales, or affordably at second hand sports shops.
