There isn’t a lot by way of fun activities to do during the winter season, so I decided to create a winter bucket list. This list is a reminder that there is no reason to feel that you’re stuck inside with nothing to do during winter.

While it’s tempting to rug up under a blanket on the couch during winter, there are so many great things happening at public events. But if you don’t feel like braving the weather, this winter bucket list is sure to have some ideas for you.

All of the items on this list are suitable for all ages. Most of them also make for great family outings or activities. The winter activities don’t require much equipment. And best of all, most of them cost next to nothing!

You could make a day of it, and combine a few together. A day of board games in your pajamas, or taking homemade cookies to the drive-in.
