Good morning everyone, and welcome to Blogmas day no.13! We are getting closer to Christmas! Today’s post is on outdoor winter activities!
*Please note that some outdoor winter activities may not be accessible because of Covid-19 restrictions*
Despite the cold weather, there are still lots of very fun outdoor winter activities to do! Here is my list…
Outdoor winter activities list:
Build a snowman☃️
This is a super fun and traditional thing to do if you are living with snow!
Although I am rubbish at it, ice skating is a fun activity! It makes a great family day out and is a right laugh to see people falling over! I haven’t been many times and I would love to go again! We have a local one that comes every year, but unfortunately, because of Covid this probably won’t happen!
Sledding looks like lots of fun whatever age. Because I live where we barely get any snow, I have never been sledding!
Again, I have never been skiing, but it looks like so much fun. However I do think it takes a lot of practice to master!
Snow ball fight🌨️
If you are living ina snowy habitat, this is a great activity to do! When Southampton does get snow ( which is like once in a lifetime!) we do have lots of fun with snowball fights!
Visit local lights/decorations💡
I love driving along local areas and seeing their beautiful lights and how they decorated their houses. In Southampton there is a particular road I love visiting every year, because they always decorate it so well!
Visit Santa and his grotto🎅
This idea is a great activity for the little ones! We tend to go to the Santa’s grotto at the local garden centre!
I have never experienced carollers or have gone carolling, however some may enjoy doing this!
Going for a winter walk🚶♀️
Going for a winter walk is a great thing to do! Sometimes we go for a family walk after Christmas dinner! This can also make a romantic winter outdoor activity too! Make sure you bring those gloves and hats!
I really want to do frozen suncatchers this winter! They are a super cute idea and look really good!

Go cut down a Christmas tree🎄
I find this is a really fun activity rather than just get a faux tree or collecting it!
This can be either fun or hard work, depending on the conditions.
Build an igloo🗻
I have never attempted to build an igloo but they look so cool and I really would love to have a go!
Have a scavenger hunt📜
This is a great and fun idea, especially for kids! You could get them to do it in a local park, in your garden, etc. This scavenger hunt can include you getting them to find particular things such as; leaves, a stick, a birds nest, etc. You could even do a scavenger hunt for their Christmas presents! We did this for Alfi’s birthday, and it worked out really well!
If you know me, you know I love photography and take it as a GCSE! Therefore I am definitely going to be taking advantage of the winter and going outside to find some photo opportunities!
This is a great thing to do in the snow, expect I don’t like getting all cold and snow in my hair!
Roasting marshmallows on a bonfire🔥
I love roast marshmallows on a cold winters night!
I love going to the local German market in town! We visit it every year and it is so much fun! You can get so many amazing gifts from the market, and they have the best hot dogs ever!
I hope this has given you inspiration for outdoor winter activities, despite Covid! Let me know what you are getting up to, or other ideas you have!
