There’s a lot to like about winter! Here are some of our favorite things to do on the homestead to soak up all the fun on the days when it’s cold outside.
make a snow-chair
Find a nice drift. Plop yourself down. Wiggle around until your seat and your armrests are just right. Snow-chairs come with built-in coolers, so keep your cold drink cold while you kick back and relax.
And a snow-chair is the perfect vantage point for surveying the winter world in all its glory!
watch the world sparkle
Everywhere you look, you will find surprising ways in which the world turns to diamonds. Every frosted surface is just a quiet canvas waiting for a chance ray of light to bring it to life.
catch a snowflake
Inspect the snow drifts. If you’re lucky, you’ll find stacked snowflakes towering on tiny pedestals, just waiting for your admiring eye to find them. Or if it’s coming down right now, a dark glove or a dark sleeve is all you need to explore a world of crystal beauty. The closer you look, the more you will be amazed!
blow some bubbles
There’s nothing like it. Grab your summer bubbles and send them sailing on a winter breeze. They’ll crystallize before your eyes and burst into snow-dust midair. Or blow them onto drifted snow and watch them freeze in place.
watch the birds
Unlike us, our feathered friends don’t even spend a moment wishing for warmer weather. And it’s just possible that snowy backgrounds makes them look even cuter!
Of course, no snow-day is complete without a little snow-play! Grab a sled, throw a snow-ball, build an igloo. And if you do happen to build an igloo – break off an icicle, stick it through the roof, and watch the sun shine through.
There’s a reason they call it a winter wonderland! Enjoy!
