A Winter Bucket List – 22 Fun Festive Activities


Since the weather has turned colder my thoughts have turned to winter activities and festive traditions I would like to share with Rosalie. Since she was only four days old last Christmas, this is her first proper festive season; I know she won’t be able to join in with all of these just yet, but hopefully this list will be something we can come back to each year.

Here is our winter bucket list:

  1. Make paper snowflakes

  2. Build a snowman

  3. Make seedy fat balls for the birds

  4. Make pomanders

  5. Go ice skating

  6. Crunch through fresh snow

  7. Have a snowball fight

  8. Make mulled wine (non-alcoholic for R of course!)

  9. Choose a Christmas tree

  10. Drink hot chocolate with marshmallows & cream

  11. Decorate the house with lights

  12. Make paper chains

  13. Bake cookies

  14. Watch The Snowman animation

  15. Make mince pies

  16. Make Christmas sweets

  17. Sing Christmas carols

  18. Make a gingerbread house

  19. Snuggle up for a Christmas movie marathon

  20. Go for a boxing day walk to burn off Christmas dinner

  21. Read The Night Before Christmas

  22. Make snow angels

Several of these rely on there being snowfall – in the UK you just never know, but fingers crossed!


What things are you hoping to do this winter? Are there any traditions you really want to carry on with your little ones?

    I love the idea of creating a winter wish list! Like you I am really, really hoping it snows as it would be Bubs' first experience of snow.
