Lose Your Cabin Fever With These Activities

By Donna Stark

Has the fever hit your home yet? And no, I'm not talking about any temperature over 98.6 degrees. I am talking about cabin fever! You know what that is, right? That claustrophobic feeling, the irritability, the extreme restlessness ... why it's enough to make even the best of us go stir-crazy! But, guess what? There is a cure for this type of fever and it's a cure that everyone in the family will love. Want to know what it is? Well, grab your jackets and head outside!

Winter Activities the Entire Family will Love

Even though you are with your loved ones, there is no sense in being locked up and miserable for the next several weeks. Make the long, cold days of winter fly by with the following suggestions that everyone in the family will love.

  • Head to the hills - With snow flying in your face and wind blowing your hair, there is nothing better than a sled ride down a hill. But don't worry if you don't own a sled. An inner tube will work just fine!
  • Hit the bullseye - As much fun as they start out, we all know that snowball fights can end in tears, so add a new element to this old-as-dirt activity. Create a bullseye in the snow with food coloring and see who has the best shot!
  • Build a snowman - Grab your gloves and start rolling! Building a snowman is not only great fun, it's also a great workout! Just don't forget the carrot for his nose!
  • Throw the hat on the snowman - The fun doesn't have to stop once the snowman is created! Find some sturdy hats in your home (old top hats and cowboy hats are perfect for this) and take turns trying to land the hats on top of the snowman's head. Change the distance you stand away from it to increase the level of difficulty.
  • Snow painting - Fill some bowls with colored water and invite your family to an art contest. Use spray bottles, droppers, turkey basters ... whatever you can find that can help deliver the amazing color to the fresh clean snow. Then invite your neighbors over to judge the lot and to determine who the winner of the art festival should be! After that, hot chocolate for everyone!

Getting Rid of the Fever

Whether you venture far and wide for your outdoor winter activity or you just head into your own backyard, your family will be sure to have fun! So lose the fever, get off of each other's nerves, and have the time of your life. You better get moving though, because spring is just around the corner!
