Doesn’t everything seem lighter and brighter during wintertime? Winter is definitely the time for wonderful, active moments as a family. An abundance of snow and light – but it’s not always easy to find activities to harness young minds that crave for fun. Here we list 7 top tips for fun winter activities for young and old alike.

STIGA Sleds Pacer

Design your own snowman! – When was the last time you built a snowman? Take the family out and start rolling. Maybe your kids prefer to stick with the classic carrot nose and stone eyes. Or perhaps they’re keen on experimenting with old clothes, sunglasses, headgear and other accessories to make their snowman the coolest one around. Let your collective imagination run wild!

STIGA Snowskate

Snow surfing! – A snowskate makes for the ultimate snow surfing experience for the youngest ones. A snowskate is like a snowboard, but without bindings.

Build a snow lantern! – A winter classic that brightens up any garden or backyard. Roll lots of snowballs, arrange them in a ring, and start building upwards. As darkness closes in, furnish it with some tealights and suddenly you have a magical outdoor lantern that glows in the winter darkness. 

STIGA Snow Kick

Explore the forest! – Winter transforms the forest into a most exciting place. Identify different tracks in the snow, look for icicles in interesting shapes, indulge in a snowball fight, or just enjoy being out in the nature together.
