It is the prime time of year where people stay in their cozy homes, spend time with family, and snuggle up with blankets. If we’re lucky enough, we may even see some more snow days. There are many things one can do during the winter and we are here to help with ideas!

For starters, making snowmen, drinking hot chocolate, and staying by a warm fireplace can be an ideal scenario for many.

The wardrobe options have also expanded since it is sweater season – So go get your turtlenecks, sweaters, and cozy pajamas! They are so in style during this chilly time!

Now is the perfect time for you to expand your hobbies! There’s crocheting, knitting, painting, and so much more! Just in time to decorate for spring!

Though snow can be fun, there can be some cons to it unfortunately. The temperatures may make you think twice before stepping foot outside – Watch out for frostbite!

Local sledding hills are also a go-to. Four Seasons park in Shorewood along with Rotary Park Sled Hill in Joliet are fan favorites. Don’t overlooks Pioneer Woods or Prairie Point Park.

But besides that ice skating, sledding, bonfires– Maybe even ice fishing sounds fun! The possibilities are endless this year! Go out and explore your options!
