Top 5 things to do this winter break


Sanjay Fernando

Happy holiday from The Current. Here are the top five activities to do on your winter break!

The return of in-person school has been a difficult transition for students and staff alike. This upcoming winter break will bring a breath of fresh air and with all that time on your hands, you have time to relax, and time to do new (and old) things. So here are the top things to do during your break!

Binge the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Since our last article where we rank all the movies, many new Marvel shows and movies came out. Including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (a personal favorite), Black Widow, Loki, The Falcon, and The Winter Soldier, and so much more. It’s something that will keep you busy all break long and a perfect opportunity to wrap up in a blanket, snuggle with your dogs (or cats!) with a piping hot cup of chocolate. 

Have a bonfire

You can invite friends and family over with this perfect winter activity! Project a movie, start a bonfire that will be sure to keep you warm all night long, and make delicious s’mores for a perfect hangout night. (Please do this carefully and with adult supervision.)

Go sledding

Whip out your sleds to do this classic winter activity. This is something you can do while it’s snowing or even when it’s not; just go on a hill, sit in your sled, and push down. It might not be as fast without any snow but it will still be super fun (I do this sometimes, trust me). Try standing on your sled as you slide down and see how long you can stay standing. Put your pets in a sled and see how they enjoy it (or freak out). Sledding is a traditional and enjoyable activity that you have to try this winter break.

Go to the zoo

I know what you’re thinking, “How can I go to the zoo when it’s cold out?!” Well, I went to the zoo when it was about 40 degrees outside and it was an incredible experience. Going to the zoo during the winter is a completely different experience than during the summer. It’s not as busy, you’re not overheating from walking around all day, and if you’re lucky, you can see the animals playing in the snow. The zoo typically brings the animals to the indoor exhibits when it gets to a certain temperature (which keeps both guests and animals warm) but a lot of the zoo animals choose to go outside despite the cold. It’s an unconventional, super fun time for you, friends, and family.

Make hot chocolate bombs

Hot chocolate is the perfect drink for the winter season, so why not spread the joy with these chocolate bombs? It’s easy to make and a perfect Christmas gift for friends. You can customize your hot chocolate bombs, with different decorations on top, including reindeer candies, white chocolate drizzle, and snowman candies. You can make this right now and save it when there’s a snowstorm, or when you’re hiding away from the bitter winter. 

If you find yourself bored this winter break, definitely try some of these fun activities!
