Have you ever noticed how the winter season always seems to mean a lot more eating and less moving and fresh air for your family? And, spending a lot more time indoors when it's cold outside could lead to boredom as well. Yes, it just seems to go along with the winter months, but it doesn’t have to. You just need to be armed with some great outdoor group activities that involve getting the family outside to have some fun. Fortunately, we have a few remedies for that stuck-indoors feeling, and we hope that you and your family will try a few of them.
It's a great time to take advantage of seasonal sports like ice skating, skiing, or sledding. You might find a public ice rink in your town, however, there’s something exhilarating about skating on a local outdoor ice rink. And, you don’t need the perfect double axel to just have a great time. So, lace up those skates and have some fun!
If you are lucky enough to have snow, the kids in your family are probably eager to try out their sleds and locate the nearest hill. OK, maybe there aren't any really big steep ones nearby but it's usually easy enough to find an embankment for sliding down. All that's needed is an inner tube, sled, piece of cardboard, or a trash can lid for zooming over the snow.
On the other hand, if you and your family members love skiing, then why not head for the nearest ski resort? Once you're there, jump on the lift, and get in some skiing while there's fresh powder on the ground. And, when you're all done with that healthy exercise, try building a snowman, ice painting, or a snowy scavenger hunt. Then, head inside for some hot chocolate. You've earned it after all!
A Winter Hike
Enjoying a new view of nature with a brisk winter hike could be just the thing your family needs! A brisk walk around the neighborhood (and don't forget your dogs) will do quite nicely, but if you happen to be close to some hiking trails, why not take a break from the neighborhood sidewalks for a change? You'll be enjoying all of that scenic foliage and glistening snow. Don't forget to bring along some bottled water and to take regular breaks if you or someone else in your family tires easily.
Outdoor Adventure Games
Exploring your city with Outdoor Adventure Games is another great way to get into the great outdoors and have some fun. Get Beyond the Walls adventure games provide affordable, safe, year-round fun for all ages! Games are currently available for outdoor group adventures in these US cities:
Types of Games
Outdoor escape room games start at a specific point in the city. From there, you are guided by the story along a predetermined path. Players use supplied props and elements from the environment to solve riddles and puzzles while also finding special codes for completing their particular story goal. Through the course of the story, players hunt for and discover all kinds of things in their city that they may have never even seen before.
These super-fun theme-based outdoor adventure games are great family bonding activities. Finishing your story and comparing your score with others makes it even more challenging and excellent as a family or team building activity. Can your team beat the high score?
Route-based games are also available and offer a set path that makes them easier to play, especially for beginners. As a player, you're guided through your city one challenge at a time along a special app-based route. During your amazing outdoor winter adventure, the app leads you from place to place as you complete puzzles to unlock obscure facts about your city.
Short on time? No problem. All our Outdoor Adventure Games are started and stopped on your schedule. The app allows you to stop playing and then pick the game back up later right where you left off. And, everyone that plays can enjoy earning points at the same time! Will you make the top of the leaderboard?
