If you’re feeling like you’re going to freeze out there, and the snow is up to your knees out there, you’re not alone. We’ve seen steady snowfall all December long, and temperatures ranging from the 40s all the way down to the single digits. Take a reprieve from feeling so chilly and warm up with our list of ideas.

Work on your baking skills

Baking from scratch is a fun skill to work on, especially during the winter months. Whipping up a batch of fresh cookies, pies, or other desserts will get you moving and produce more body heat. Your toasty oven will also add to your warmth. And the best part is, you’ll have delicious warm treats when you’re finished!

Go catch a movie

The holidays are arguably when the best movies of the season are released. What better way to avoid the chill outside than by visiting your local theatre. Bring a blanket with you and be transported into a movie universe. You’ll forget all about the cold outside, at least for an hour or two.

Host a game night

Get your family and friends together for a game night at your house. Build a roaring fire, or crank up the heat so your guests feel extra toasty after their travels to your home. Play your favorite board or card games, and the frigid weather will be nothing but a distant memory.

Build a blanket fort

Kids and adults alike love a good blanket fort (even if they say they don’t!). If it’s looking particularly chilly outside, collect all of your favorite blankets and pillows and create a fort in your living room. Snuggle up with a good book, a favorite movie, or just a piping cup of hot cocoa and you’ll be feeling warm and toasty in minutes.
