Christmas break is finally here. When all the presents are unwrapped, the cookies are eaten, and the stockings are emptied – what are you going to do? Don’t worry, we’ve got some great ideas to keep the kids outside and the parents enjoying Christmas break.
Sled Hill Obstacle Course –
Take an empty milk jug or soda bottle and fill it with water. Add a few drops of food coloring. You will use this to mark “obstacles” on your sled hill. When you get to the sled hill, pour some of your colored water in the shape of X’s on the hill in various spots. Whoever can make it down the hill without hitting one of the obstacles is the winner.
Sled Hill Capture the Flag –
Place a flag on the hill. Whoever captures the flag on the way down is the winner!
Snow Fort Battle –
Divide into two teams. Each team will need their own flag. To start you need to build a snow shelter and a amass a pile of small snow balls. Put your flag in the middle of your fort. The goal of the game is to capture the other team’s flag and return it to your team’s fort.
JM Cremp’s has lots of fun toys and gear to complete your outdoor winter adventures. Our zipfy sleds will get you to the bottom of the hill in record time. Our snowshoes are perfect for winter treks into the woods with the family.
