The Best Ideas for Family Winter Fun
Long, cold winter nights are the perfect time for the family to spend some quality time together. School holidays also mean saying goodbye to homework and exams and saying hello to some great winter fun. No matter what your budget is, you and your family can have some great fun this winter.
Indoor Winter Fun
If the weather is just too cold to venture out, or you want to have a family night, a movie night is always a great idea. With the smell of popcorn, some hot chocolate and warm blankets, you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Winter is also the perfect time for bookworms to curl up in a corner and read for as long as they want to. Or perhaps you want to start reading? The local library is always a good place to start to get your hands on some winter reads. If you’re not into reading, you can also use the slow time of winter to spend time on your hobbies or learn a new hobby.
Outdoor Winter Fun
Of course, you don’t have to be inside to have some winter fun. There are many festivals all around the country during winter that will be a great outing for you, your family, and your friends. Some of the most popular winter festivals are the Dullstroom Winter Festival, the Vryfees in Bloemfontein, the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, and Oppikoppi. These festivals boast concerts, performances, and craft markets. The National Arts Festival also has exhibitions and installations, lectures, and workshops.
For those who prefer something by the seaside, there is the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival – which also includes forest hikes and a Whisky and Jazz Cruise – and the JBay Festival in Jeffreys Bay. The JBay Festival is the place to be if you’re a surfing enthusiast. Some of the festivals also have mountain biking and trail running, making sure that there is winter fun in abundance.
