Christmas may be over but Jack Frost hasn’t gone into hibernation. Winter gets a bad rep if you’re over the age of 12 but if you think about it, the season is kind of amazing. We’ve put together a short, simple list of ways to renew your childhood love of winter. It really is a winter wonderland out there.
Tobogganing– The essence of every snow day you had as a kid can be revisited as a way to rekindle that childhood fascination with snow. And the best part is that Toronto is home to some of the best hills around. Check out this list for the slope nearest you.
Hot Chocolate– Some hot cocoa after a trek in the snow as you look out the window into your own personal snow globe can make any chilled toes warm again. It’s simple, effective and most importantly tasty.
Build a snowman– Frozen song aside, building a snowman with family, friends or roommates can seem silly at first as an adult but two coal eyes and a carrot nose later you can step back, look at your masterpiece and smile. Bonus points for originality.
We know you probably haven’t touched them in years but pull out those snow pants from storage, grab a little red sled and get moving, your nose is ready to be nipped and snowflakes are ready to land on your tongue.
