Family holidays in winter: where to go

Winter is not a reason to give up outdoor recreation with entertainment and hot food. Prepared correctly, the hike will be fun, magical and unforgettable. Photos of the family against the background of winter fabulous landscapes, a cheerful mood and a desire to relax in this way again will be remembered.

So that the hike with the children in cold weather does not end sadly, you should prepare in advance. Think about where and when to go, what to take with you, how to dress and how to have fun.

Where and when to go

With the younger ones, a place of rest is chosen near residential buildings or summer cottages. Even if you plan to travel by car, you should not go far - unforeseen circumstances also happen to the car.

For a fire and lunch, a reliable option is a clearing where the wind does not blow. If the wind is strong, it is advisable to stay indoors if there is no frost.

When to leave. Winter days are short, and at 10 am the air is chilly. This means that the beginning of the hike is at 9:00 or after 10. 0.

Thinking of entertainment at a picnic with children

Even minus 5 will not let you stand and sit even for 20 minutes, so the script is thought out the day before and the paraphernalia is being prepared. Fun, simple and addicting games are selected. For example:

1). Make feeders in the evening and hang them out, put food for birds and squirrels.

2). Organize a competition for funny snow figures by dressing up in caps and decorating with brought old scarves or collars. A difficult version of sculpting - building a fortress or a house, sculpting animals on trees.

3). A coniferous tree growing nearby begs to be smartened up. It is not necessary to hang Christmas balls and tinsel. You can decorate with fruits, buns, which will later be eaten by forest dwellers.
