Family decorating gingerbread house

Don’t let the cold keep you from celebrating the First Day of Winter! Lace up your ice skates and hit the rink, dust off your sled or stay inside for a movie marathon. Here’s your winter bucket list on a budget.

  • Admire a talented ballerina in The Nutcracker at your nearby theatre
  • Hold a household gingerbread house construction contest
  • Host a chili cook-off and challenge your friends and family to enter their best dish
  • Challenge your neighborhood to a snowman making contest during the first snow-fall
  • Snuggle up on the couch and watch your favorite holiday movies
  • Hit the slopes and learn to snowboard
  • Help your kids clean out, and donate, their old toys
  • Bundle up and cheer on your hometown hockey team
  • Get creative and make a homemade wreath to hang on your front door
  • Visit your local Christmas tree farm and cut down your favorite
  • Spend the day putting up Christmas decorations around your house while listening to your favorite holiday tunes
  • Gather a group to go caroling
  • Pile your friends and family members into one car and take a Christmas lights tour
  • Volunteer to make meals for a local shelter
  • Stay in your pajamas all day and read your favorite book
  • Pay it forward in the coffee shop line
  • Stir up your favorite soup recipe, then invite your friends over to taste test
