Fun Winter Activities!

December 2017


Remember when you were a kid and winter didn’t stop you from playing outside? You’d simply bundle up and enter the wintery wonderland to build a fort or a snowman, go tobagging, skating, or just trek through the snow like an arctic explorer!

Being creative requires us to tap into the playfulness of being a kid again. And Manitoba has so many fantastic ways to enjoy winter!

Be adventurous and try even one this winter season!
