My dream come true: Family Day at the cottage! Politicians knew what they were doing when they made a designated holiday where families could take time off work to spend with their families. Making it in February is great timing since by then some of us are dreaming of Spring and warmer temperatures where we are more likely to spend time outdoors with family and friends. Family Day encourages us to plan a day of fun with family and forget the humdrum stuff for a day. If you’re lucky enough to own or have access to a cottage it is a perfect location to relax and have fun for the day.
Fun in the Snow
You never really know what the weather will be like for Family Day but being ready for the elements projected is always wise. Should there be snow, we have some ideas that may be intriguing for you.
- Cross country skiing or snowshoeing around the area
- Downhill skiing/snowboarding
- Snowmobiling to a destination or just around the area
- Building a snow fort with cool covered rooms
- Tromping a maze in fresh snow and play a game of tag
- Make a snowman family
If the weather hasn’t cooperated with your outdoor plans or you wish to stay inside where it’s warm we have other ideas for you. Put on your comfy clothes and consider one of these.
- Family movie day
- Playing favourite board/card games
- Hide and Seek with little ones
- Drinking games with big ones (pop of course… :))
- Make your own pizza and share party
- Crafts time
- Everyone work on a puzzle and then frame it
- Electronic games like Wii
A cottage is a place where you most likely already are tuned to be in relaxation mode. This makes it a perfect place to celebrate Family Day. Put down the cell phone and close the computer screen for a bit. It’s time to kick back, appreciate family members and enjoy time with them. Hope our suggestions are helpful.
