Winter Break Activity Ideas


Looking for something to do with the family during winter break? Here are some fresh activity ideas you're bound to enjoy.

Head For The Hills

Discover a winter wonderland right outside your back door. Take the camera and shoot video of local reindeer, snow flake and frost designs and snow bunnies. Find out what birds stick around in winter. Make a snow angel or play Tic-Tac-Toe (or Noughts and crosses, Xs and Os) in the snow.


Science Lab Time

It's just a matter of time. The school science project. Get a jump start on this years upcoming school science competition. Read books and magazines about challenging science activities you can do right in your own home. Have a science show to entertain the family. Record your discoveries and science demo presentation on video and replay it for even more fun.


Bowling

We are the champions! Who doesn't like to bowl while woofing down a slice of pizza or two. Designate one of your winter break days for a fun family and friends bowling championship.


Ice Skating

Many families love going to the local roller skating rink. Why not try ice skating for a change. Once thing is certain, it will be a thrilling adventure you'll never forget. The objective: Try to keep your body vertical and your feet on the ice. If anything is accomplished it will be a load of laughs worthy of capturing on video.

Day At The Library

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. A beautiful day for a book store, would you be mine... Every time I visit a neighborhood library or local bookstore I feel like I'm going to bump into Mr Rogers and trolley and go on a fantastic Kingdom adventure. Is there a local bookstore or library in your neighborhood? Venture out and discover some fun winter activities there. Speakers, presentations, book signing,craft courses, movies and more.When your done grab some books and have an at home book recital or story telling time.
