Winter Bucket List

The temperature is decreasing and the fall season is coming to an end. Have you made winter plans? We’ve compiled a list of exciting things to do during the cooler months. Check out our suggestions and bring in the new season with a winter bucket list.

Have Hot Chocolate

One of the most anticipated parts of the changing season is the delicious seasonal drinks. So, of course, a cup of flavorful hot chocolate is definitely in order. Purchase a cup from a nearby drink stop or create a recipe of your own. You can make this drink extra special by adding peppermint, chocolate chips, and lots of marshmallows. What a way to start off the winter!

Have a Pajama Day

There’s just something about the winter that puts you in the lounging mood. If you’re in the mood to lounge a round, make an event out of it and schedule a Pajama Day! Invite your family and friends over, create a list of activities, and let the fun begin!

Have Breakfast for Dinner

While you’re having a Pajama Day, take things up a notch with breakfast for dinner! You can make something simple like bacon, eggs, and orange juice or create an extravagant spread by adding pancakes, waffles, sausage, fresh fruit, and mimosas to the mix.

Light a Fire

If you are in a good area for a campfire, why not add this to your winter bucket list? There are various types of wood that you can use, as well as a variety of methods in which you can build your fire. To make things a bit easier, we found a web page that can show you exactly how to get your fire going.
