Getting Hygge with it. 41 Snug Ideas for Winter Fun in Melbourne.


 Ideas for Winter Fun in Melbourne

School holidays are approaching fast and while some of us ,might be lucky enough to be heading off somewhere exciting and warm, a lot of us will just want to be staying home and enjoying time with our families.

It always takes a bit of time to get into the rhythm on school holidays because everyone is so used to routines and schedules so here are 41 ideas for Winter Fun in Melbourne.

I have included a really good selection of things that you can do in the comfort of your own home or neighbourhood.

  • Grab a sketch pad and go for a winter ramble, drawing what you see.
  • Read a book. You can find some great ideas here.
  • Bake a cake, a cookie or some slice.
  • Cook slow. It is so lovely to have a pot of something delicious bubbling away on the stove all day. Try this shredded beef or these slow cooked chicken burritos. Yum!
  • Throw a snow ball.
  • Enjoy the Winter Fun Fest.
  • Pop on a beanie and support your local market.
  • Attend a writers festival. Byron Bay, Melbourne and Bendigo are all coming soon.
  • Order a pamper pack and have a little makeover in the comfort of your own home.
  • Take a cooking class. I can recommend Locavore Studio and String and Salt, but there are plenty of others too.
  • Enjoy cheese fondue. Then maybe try chocolate fondue.
  • Take a class.
  • Play board games.
  • Write a letter.
  • Take up knitting.
  • Make a winter flower arrangement. flower arrangement Ideas for Winter Fun in Melbourne
  • Try the Hot Springs at Daylesford or Rye (coming soon Phillip Island)
  • Go on a treasure hunt at your local op shops.
  • Take a drive and create a treasure hunt e.g.. “find something for each letter of your name or the alphabet.
  • Do a playground/ park crawl.
  • Make scones with tea.
  • Host a tea party.
  • Make an indoor cubby house.
  • Create a play tablecloth train track with Kelly from Be a Fun Mum.
  • Make cars out of cardboard boxes.
  • Make a collage. Take a look at The Collage Club on Instagram for some next level inspiration.
  • Learn to code.
  • Have a disco.
  • Create a hot chocolate station for your home and use it every night for super.
  • Stock up on books, magazines and DVD’s from your local library.
  • Visit the museum.
  • Make your own marshmallows.
  • Have meal in a cosy Country Pub.
  • Learn a craft online with Pip from Meet me at Mikes. It’s a definite yes from me to the sparkly soaps and paper strawberries.
  • Buy yourself a cosy sweater.
  • Plant yourself a succulent garden inside or outside.
  • Sit by an open fire.
  • Bake some fresh bread.
  • Enjoy a Netflix marathon
  • Make a holiday pack for everyone in your family. Include a blank journal and encourage everyone to fill in a page at the end of every day.
  • Level up at yoga. I’m still using this app.
  • Start a blog. Check out this sweet, fun course to get you started.
  • Go for a bush walk and collect something in every colour of the rainbow.

Nearly all of them can be done as a family, although they might require some adapting.

I would love to hear your ideas of what you like to do as a family in the winter holidays.

Whatever you plan to do, remember to enjoy yourself and treasure the moments as they arrive.
