Winter Holidays: A Guide to Fun Family Activities!

When the forecast has nothing but snow in the foreseeable future, don’t use it as an excuse to hide indoors! Plan some fun outdoor family winter activities to chase away that cabin fever! Winter has so much to offer, so get out there and have fun! Today, we’re sharing  a winter holidays guide to fun for your whole family. Check out these fun winter activities!

Outdoor Family Winter Activities 


Grab a sled and trek to the top of that perfectly powdered hill.  Tobogganing is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy; nothing beats the thrill of sliding down a snowy white hill. What’s your toboggan of choice? The classic wooden style? The faster and more unpredictable flying saucer, or maybe a sleek crazy carpet? Maybe you love the fast-paced thrill of a toboggan track at your favorite ski resort?


For a calmer experience, a nice skate around a local outdoor rink is a great way to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with your kids. This is one of our favourite family outdoor winter activities aside from skiing.


If the snow is particularly deep, why not try snowshoeing? Modern snowshoes are inexpensive, snap onto all boots and are a fun and interesting way to walk across deep snow without sinking. In fact, snowshoes are a great way to get to the top of a toboggan hill safely and quickly.

Snow Fort

If staying closer to home seems more appealing, building a snow fort with the kids in the yard is a classic winter activity.  Packing snow into bread tins is fun way to make snow bricks for building the best fortress on the block.


When playing in the snow, there’s bound to be slips and falls, and not every toboggan run ends in a fluffy pile of snow, but that’s part of the fun. So when your day is done reach for Rub A535™ to soothe and relax tense muscles so you can do it all over again tomorrow.


For the little ones, natural source Rub A535™ Maximum Strength Arnica Gel-Cream is an effective all natural product that makes it the ideal treatment for bumps, bruises and swelling and it’s great for when you’re on the go. When you’re all warmed up at home, you can top off a fun day in the snow, with a nice cup of hot chocolate!

  1. Wow this looks like so much fun! Tobogganing sounds like it would be a blast. I love making ice forts one year back in college we made an igloo about 7 feet tall and 8 feet wide. It was amazing! Took my buddies and I about 12 hours to complete. Then about 15 minutes to destroy. I hadn’t heard of Rub 535 before will keep that in mind this winter.

  2. Playing with snow in general is already so fun. Although, I wish to try some snowboarding, I’m not sure if my body can take it at this age.

  3. Sledding, Ice skating, and snow ball fights are our favorites! Building a snow fort is definitely on our agenda just as soon as we get some snow. 🙂
