Winter Activity Guide

Board Games

If you’re stuck inside, board games are a great alternative to binging another Netflix series. Modern board games have gotten a lot more interesting than dusty old Monopoly. For two players try Lost Cities or Patchwork and for larger groups there’s Just One, Azul or Forbidden Island. Or check out BoardGameGeek.com to find your next fave. The best part is having the chance to sit across the table from someone you care about and absolutely destroying them.

Ice Fishing

There are few things more Canadian than sitting in a shack on the middle of a frozen lake fishing through a hole in the ice. Unless you have access to your own shack or have the means to bring said shack into the middle of a lake, you’re probably going to have to outsource this one. Check for a list of companies near you that offer ice fishing experiences and don’t forget your thermos of hot chocolate to keep you toasty. Maybe add a little Bailey’s in there, we won’t judge.

Snowman Building

We’re all familiar with the typical looking snowman with a corn cob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal, but do yourself a favour and Google creative snowman designs. From cannibal snowman enjoying his lunch to peeping tom snowman peering into your neighbour’s window, there are some very creative ideas out there. Sick of the kid across the street always getting all the glory? Not anymore little Stevie!

Online Learning

Few things are as rewarding as picking up a new skill or learning about a new subject. Many of our public libraries’ digital offerings include free memberships to learning platforms, and sites like LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) and The Great Courses offer robust learning options at affordable prices. So instead of using your downtime to sit around doom scrolling and getting into arguments on Facebook, use the internet for something nice for once.

Dogsledding

If you’re looking for the dogsledding experience without the task of breeding your own team of Siberian Huskies, you chose to live in the right country. With numerous companies across Ontario that provide the complete experience for a solo adventurer or the whole family, all you need to bring is your one-piece snow suit and trapper hat to complete the look—bonus points if the snowsuit’s neon because the 80s are always in style.
