If you’re looking for a more relaxed winter outdoor activity, why not go for a picnic in your local park or beach? You can take along a book, or play games while you take in the fresh air and wintery atmosphere.
Although, we recommend packing your rucksack with plenty of goodies, like flasks of soup and hot drinks to keep you warm and cosy whilst you’re outside. Don’t forget to take some sweet treats either, for that extra sugar boost.
Top tip – make sure you have a picnic blanket with waterproof bottom lining to keep you dry, and fleece top layer to maximise your comfort.
There’s something magical about cosying up in blankets all night beneath the stars and seeing what you can spot in the sky. Stargazing is the perfect winter activity because the nights are darker for longer, so it’s easier to pick out the different constellations.
Why not challenge yourself to see which constellations you can see, and learn about the myths attached to them? In the northern hemisphere, look out for the Winter Triangle, which includes Sirius (Canis Major), Procyon (Canis Minor), and Betelgeuse (Orion).
