They say money can’t buy happiness — and it doesn’t have to. These activities don’t require a lot of money, but they can instantly make you feel better.
1. Make snow sculptures.
Unleash your creativity and exercise your imagination. Sculpt animals or structures using snow. Make a snowman, a snow angel, or a snow castle. Incorporate other materials into your sculptures such as twigs or toys to make them look more artistic.
2. Volunteer to shovel out the snow from someone’s driveway.
Instead of doing nothing, extend help to someone who needs it. Do someone a simple favor and help them clear out their driveway by shoveling the snow. You won’t just help someone, you’ll also gain a new friend.
3. Go snowboarding.
If you’re the adventurous kind, hit the slopes and invite your friends or family to go on a snowboarding adventure. Imagine the thrill of going down the slopes. American Ski Exchange suggests checking out Vail snowboard rentals if you’re up for that skiing experience.
4. Toast marshmallows.
One of the simple things you can do is to stay indoors and cozy up in front of the fireplace. Toast marshmallows and pair it up with a mug of steaming hot chocolate.
5. Go skating.
Nothing beats the fun of going ice skating. Glide like a Disney ice princess inside the rink and enjoy your time.
6. Organize a movie night.
Why pay for expensive tickets and food when you can host a movie night at home? Set up DVDs or stream from Netflix. Throw in a couple of trivia games, or come up with a movie themed party.
7. Bake or cook some warm treats.
Food makes everything better. Bake some cookies, apple pie, or cinnamon roll for the family. Cook a warm cheesy casserole for everyone or grill cheese sandwiches accompanied with tomato soup.
There are a lot of things to do even without spending much. Whether you’re an adventurous person or a home buddy, fill your days with happy and entertaining activities.
