Thaw Out With These 5 Ways to Stay Warm This Winter 

With the winter months comes fun outdoor activities, but for the days that you might just want to stay inside instead of braving the cold, here are some fun ways to keep you comfy and entertained while at home this winter!

1. A Cozy Winter Beverage

Nothing is more soothing and cozy than a warm hot beverage to drink while watching the snowfall or sitting by the fire. So, we’ve picked out one of our favorite winter drinks that you can easily and affordably make at home! The Eggnog Chai Latte combines the nostalgic holiday taste with a sweet tea recipe. It’s super easy and quick to make, with only four simple ingredients (chai tea, nutmeg, eggnog, and milk) so that your kitchen can stay clean and you can stay stress-free! Enjoy the recipe here: 

2. Winter Movies!

While enjoying your latte or another one of your favorite winter beverages, another great way to stay warm and entertained inside this winter is to cuddle up to one of your favorite winter movies! 

If you’ve got kids to entertain, some great movies to keep them smiling this season are Rise of the Guardians (2012), Frozen (2014), Happy Feet (2006), Narnia (2005), and Home Alone (1990). For the adults and friends who prefer a great drama or horror movie, some classics such as The Shining (1980), Misery (1990), Winter Sleep (2014) and The Thing (1982) are sure to make you glad you’re warm and safe inside!

3. Board Games for the Family

For some fun family time away from a screen, there’s nothing better on a cold day than a good old fashioned board game! Some of our favorites are Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, and Pictionary. For the kids specifically, Battleship, Candy Land, Clue, Sorry!, and Trouble are sure to keep them entertained and cozy while cooped up in the house this season. This is also a great way to spend some time together as a family.

4. Finding New Crafts

The wintertime is perfect for learning a new skill, or working on a new craft while you wait out the cold, or even prepare to go out into it! Knitting, crocheting, and spool knitting are super easy to learn, and they could benefit you if you decide to take a chance going out in the cold. There are so many different pieces of clothing, blankets, and decorations you can create with these fun crafts! For the kids, DIY pom-pom making, sand art, spin art, and ornament making are all super easy and fun ways to keep them smiling and proud of themselves while relaxing at the house. 

5. S’mores!

Finally, another favorite way to stay warm and cozy while inside this winter is making s’mores inside! Whether you put them over the stove top or in the oven, they’re sure to be delicious. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your toppings, either! Aside from the graham crackers and chocolate, adding candy canes, fresh berries, peanut butter, and caramel make for some extremely tasty treats. Don’t feel bad for taking a nap after!
