Days spent channel surfing or binge-watching nine seasons of a critically-acclaimed show can get old. After a while, you’ll want to mix it up, do something you have never done before, or even just break your routine. That’s why the pros over at Prevention have come up with this exceptional list of the top wintertime activities.

Bake Cookies from Scratch

Baking cookies on a chilly afternoon is a great way to add some sweetness to your day during the winter. It also offers a great way to spend time with family, enjoy a delicious treat, and even spark an interest in a new hobby.

Knit a Blanket

Super thick, knitted blankets are trendy right now, and although they may cost you a pretty penny in the store, it is very affordable to knit one on your own. Learning how to knit is a useful skill that is also not very difficult. Knitting has been proven to be a great way to relax, which makes it the perfect activity for a chilly and snowy day in the house.

Build a Fort

Building a fort is a great activity you can do with your kids on a cold, snowy day. Not only will it spark your child’s imagination, but it will even bring out your inner child. Whether with your kids or partner, making a cozy pillow fort is one of the most underrated wintertime activities.
