Winter Activities | DeRidder, LAIt can be difficult to get outside during winter, especially if you live in a particularly cold environment. That can lead to a buildup of energy and restlessness in both kids and adults. Fortunately, not all hope is lost once the first snow hits the ground. We here at Highway Ford have a few fun outdoor winter activities we’d like to recommend so you don’t have to stay inside all season long!

  • Sledding – A classic winter pastime, sledding is still incredibly popular in most communities. All you need is a sled and a hill with snow on it. For this, check out local area businesses that generally don’t operate during winter, like golf courses. If all else fails, head to a local hill and start sledding!
  • Paint – In order to create snow paint, all you need is food coloring and a spray bottle. Hand the bottles off to the kids and let them paint your yard a variety of colors. You’re bound to have the most interesting snow-covered yard in town!
  • Photography – When all else fails, grab your camera (or smartphone) and take pictures. You never know what gorgeous landscape you might capture. Don’t forget to take a few pictures of the kids as well so you have something to look back on in the future!
