Hibernating in style: Ideas for Fun as the Weather Cools Down

It’s all about rewarding yourself, because baby it’s cold outside. But it’s not all about indulgence, it’s important to keep busy too.

With the mercury continuing to drop nationwide and snow starting to fall in the mountains, it’s important to hibernate in style – think lush rugs by the fire, classic movies, hot apple cider…it’s all about rewarding yourself, because baby it’s cold outside. But it’s not all about indulgence, it’s important to keep busy too. With plenty of indoor activities to take the chill out of the air, here are some cool suggestions from Kijiji on how to keep warm at home this season:

Invite the neighbours or your friends around for a games night. Put the smart phones and tablets in a drawer, and go head to head with your friends and put those analog skills to the test with classic board games like Scrabble, Jenga and Monopoly, or newer options like The Settlers of Catan, Apples to Apples, or Cranium. Prefer video games? Why not dust off the vintage gaming systems and invite some friends over for a nostalgic night of Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis games?

Do some crafting. Knitting has made a big comeback, so why not learn to knit of crochet? Check out Kijiji hobbies and crafts for patterns and books to teach yourself from the comfort of your couch, or search for knitting classes in your local community for a little extra help. Want to socialize but don’t need lessons? See if there is a local club to get together and knit, or set one up yourself!

Start a book club. Grab some friends and lock yourself indoors with some mulled wine and a few fictional classics. If you aren’t part of a book club – use Kijiji to start one and source books. Post an ad in the Activities & Groups section to find club members, and set up an alert for upcoming titles in the books category.

Cook up a storm. Warm yourself up with some comfort food this winter and stock up on those kitchen classics. From fondue kits to cast iron cookware, Kijiji will make sure you’re that much more likely to impress your dinner guests.
