WINTER ADVENTURES WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY

Enjoy the winter season outdoors with your family! We have listed some activities for you to experience together.

WINTER ADVENTURES WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY

The winter season has so much to offer. Don’t let the harsh basis of the weather stop you from enjoying it! Polyver Sweden highly encourage you to put on your snow boots and get out in the cold. Indulge in the idyllic snow covered landscapes – with your feet in completely warm, dry and comfortable shoes!

You will not regret taking advantage of all beauty that this season brings. If you need tips on how to dress, we have got some for you here. If you want tips on family friendly winter activities for the whole gang, keep reading!

1. HIKE WITH YOUR KIDS

If you do not have much or any experience with hiking trails – it might sound a little intimidating. Especially with your kids. But in reality – it can be a super easy and enjoyable activity!

Adjust your hike to your ambition level. Find a closeby park to explore or an easy family walk trail near you! Stay for fika (a Swedish expression for the activity of drinking coffee/tea along with something sweet to chew) next to a lake and enjoy the view. Talk about what you see. Make it a game to find different animals and trees. Collect stones and other items and make a collage! Take it step by step, listen to your needs as you go along and be flexible.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND FOR A SMOOTH WINTER ADVENTURE:

  • Pack your bag with snacks to keep everybody’s energy at a solid level during the whole expedition. Stay often for recharging snack breaks if you are walking a longer hike trail.
  • Dress warm in thin layers under the overalls along with proper hats and gloves.
  • Wear warm, comfortable and completely waterproof winter boots to keep your feet warm during the whole outdoor expedition (find our guide to the best winter boots here)
  • Bring a first aid kit - just to be sure!
  • Remember: you can stop and go home at any point.
  • 2. BUILD A SNOWMAN

    This is a very accessible, creative and fun activity! You only need to find an area where to build your snowmen, comfortable clothing and warm boots! Go out to your garden if you have one, a snow covered grass field around the corner or a close by forest.

    To make it more exciting – bring carrots or potatoes for noses and pick stones and things to create buttons. Create whatever decoration you feel like at home before hand and bring it with you! Preferrably different foods, that will molder by itself and not interfere with nature – unless you plan on bringing it back home.

    Make it a contest! Each person makes their own snowman and then everybody rates them all. The winner gets to chose what you eat for dinner!

    3. GO ICE SKATING

    Find a closeby ice rink and test your balance with ice skates! This is such a fun activity, even if you might fall at times. But that will only give the rest of the group a good laugh. Bring a thermos with hot chocolate, snacks and put on your comfortable winter boots to exchange to when you have had enough of the ice skates – and get going!

    Indoor ice rinks usually have skates available to rent if you do not have your own – and some organized outdoor rinks do. Have a look around and find one near you.

    Mix it up and play freeze skate! Works just as the game freeze dance, but on ice. The way it works is you play music, and randomly stop it. Every time the music stops, you all must freeze and stop on the ice. As you can imagine this can be a bit difficult and very much fun. The last one to freeze is out of the game. Or just skip the last part if you do not want it to be competitive!

    Enjoying nature together this way can be a beautiful experience. Introduce nature to your kids when they are young and they will carry it with them in life.


    Have fun out there and stay warm, dry and comfortable!
