of the best things about winter is the snow. And one of the best
things about snow is the fun and games that it allows. Below are
some common games, as well as other activities, that can make snow
days seem as fun—or possible more fun—as a summer day.
Some very fun games that can be played in the snow are simply variations
on games that are normally played on dry ground. This includes such
games as tag, duck-duck-goose, red rover, and more. All of these
games can be played exactly as they normally would be, but there
is the added twist of the snow. This makes these games more interesting
for several reasons. The snow makes running much more difficult,
and the risk of falling (without pain) is much higher than normal.
This added element can make any game more fun in the snow.
Other games that are fun to play in the snow are traditional sports.
This can include football (normally tackling would be a lot more
painful than it is in the snow), hockey (since this can be played
on ice, it is better in the winter than any other time of year),
and more. Whatever sport you may be interested in playing, doing
it in the snow can be very fun for kids and adults alike.
Other things that are fun to play in the snow are games that are
impossible to play at any other time. Building a snowman can be
a fun thing to do, especially if there is a contest for making a
snowman the biggest, fastest, etc. Snowball fights are a fun game
that can only be played with snow as well. Creating teams or playing
individually can be equally as fun. Making snow angels can also
be a blast for kids. While this isn’t really a game, you can
make it seem like one by making as many as possible in a short period
of time. Sledding, snowboarding, and more are also fun things to
do on a snowy day.
Another fun thing about snow is the tracks that are made when you
walk. Since this normally wouldn’t be the case, there are
some games that you can only play when it snows. One example of
this type of game is fox hunting. This game works best when played
by a group. At the beginning of the game two kids are chosen to
represent the foxes. The rest of the group goes off in different
directions, and the foxes take off after a few minutes. The foxes
have a goal of not getting caught by any of the other players. They
must avoid all human snow tracks, and try to not make any of their
own. They can walk in others’ tracks, walk along items on
the ground, and more. Once the foxes have both been caught, the
group gets back together and picks new foxes to start all over.
As you can see, there are many fun games that can be played in
the snow. Enjoy this winter by implementing as many as you want
to have a ball and avoid cabin fever.
Sports and Activities
Wintertime often sparks cabin fever, creating a feeling of seclusion,
boredom and depression in many people.
When the snow falls, the first thought for many parents and children
is to break out the sleds.
When you consider buying any large ticket item, you tend to ask
people who have used it what they think of it before you purchase
