Fun Family Activities To Do In The Colder Months

winter games
With the colder months approaching, many families prepare to enjoy the warmth of staying indoors. However, this can quickly turn monotonous, where we start to miss the excitement of summer adventures where the family easily bonds together. Usually, indoor time also increases screen time that could negatively effects emotional and mental well-being. There are several fun activities we can get involved in during the winter from camping to going on road trips. Here are six fun activities to consider enjoying with your family during the colder months.

It is not easy to encourage our children to get outdoors, especially when they grow older. However, it is not only the kids that find it hard to go outside these days. Instead of talking about the benefits, we need to have practical solutions to get ourselves and our children outdoors.

Family is What You Make of It

There is no such thing as the "perfect" family because family is what we make of it. I am sure that none of us would want to trade our families for any other even if they are not perfect all the times. Although, I am sure there are times you question this :) Deep down each of us know that we can rely on our family the most, and that attachment we have with our family is a gift from God that we must cherish.

A Guide From Toronto Hydro to Help Us Prepare For An Emergency

Toronto Hydro
As parents, we’re responsible for the health and safety of our family. Part of this responsibility includes making sure we can care for our family, and are prepared to face challenges. In times of emergency it is always better to be prepared. I know how important this is especially during the winter, and after going through the 2013 ice storm experience and having to live through 5 days without power.

Movie Suggestions for the Family #StreamTeam

My family and I have enjoyed Netflix for years, as it allows us to watch movies and TV shows when and where we want. I like that through the Netflix account each family member can create their own customized list of shows they want to watch. I rather my children watch shows through Netflix without the advertisement, so I can monitor appropriate shows that are for their age.

The Game of THINGS

The Game of THINGS was invented by chance when the three North Bay boys, Tom and Ted Quinn and Mark Sherry were simply trying to make each other laugh. After five years of those same family and friends telling them that this was the funniest game they had ever played, the friends took another year to design and develop it into what is now on store shelves.

Products made with elephant poo paper
During our visit to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka, we saw a small elephant poo factory that gave us the opportunity to learn how elephant dung is transformed into paper. I have seen products made with elephant poo during the Green living show in Canada, so very curiously we went in.

Posting Cards To Keep in Touch With Family and Friends

When life gets a little busy with work, studies or hobbies :) we forget the most important thing, our family and friends especially the extended ones. It is quite important to keep ties, so our children know their relatives. I joined Hallmark's Get Carded Challenge because I believe it is important to keep in touch with family and friends. I posted several greeting cards to those near and dear to me.
