Staying busy during break:fun winter activities for all

The temperature is dropping more and more everyday. Soon enough, the snow will be falling outside. No one should stay cooped up inside and miss out on all the fun.

During the winter time, whether you think so or not, there are plenty of things to do to keep busy.

If you are an outdoors type, and aren’t afraid to get a little chill in your bones, why not throw on your warmest coat, fluffy ear muffs and your most insulated pair of gloves and play outside in the snow.

Have you ever had a really intense snowball fight with your close family and friends?

Or, even better, have you ever tried to build the biggest snowman in town to top all the little kid’s miniature ones on your street?

Who hasn’t enjoyed lying on your front lawn making snow angels until you can’t feel your hands or feet anymore?

If home isn’t the most exciting place to be, maybe you should take a winter vacation getaway.

Grab your closest family and friends and go skiing down the snowy mountain tops, or tubing down the bumpy hills, or even snowboarding down the slopes.

Staying active in the cold weather keeps you in good health, as well as in good shape.

Yet another option might be to take a day trip to New York City.

This is always a great way to enjoy the crisp air outside.

You can go ice skating at Rockefeller Center and see the magnificent Christmas tree while you are there.

You could see a wonderful Broadway show now that the strike is over, or see the Nutcracker.

You could watch the Rockettes at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular- which is always a very entertaining treat.

When all else fails, holiday shopping for everyone on your list can be done along 5th Avenue.

It’s a great way to make time pass and get your holiday check list completed.

Although there are those who love the outdoors, there are always the others who would rather stay in the warmth and feel nice and cozy.

Decorating for the holidays is always exciting; put up lots of colorful lights and listen to seasonal music.

Many of these things can put you in a good mood and high spirits.

Baking tasty treats like cookies and delicious pies will heat up the house and give off an array of seasonal scents.

Staying in and drinking hot chocolate by the fire and roasting marshmallows is a great way to spend time with the ones you care about most and enjoy spending time with.
