Fun things to do in the snow

Before setting out, be sure to download an app like AccuWeather (for both Android and iOS) to check the conditions. You want snow, however, too much may be a problem. Don’t make getting lost in a blizzard one of your snow activities.

Start close to home by building a snowman in the yard, making maple snow candy, or skating at a nearby pond or ice rink. Visit the local zoo to see polar bears, penguins, and arctic foxes enjoying the cold as well.

Get further out with a trip to the mountains for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling. Hike a few open trails and enjoy the scenic landscape, using your smartwatch to keep track of your route.

With your Google Pixel 6 in hand, you’ll take incredible shots and video in any light. The new camera system captures more detail and keeps fast-moving subjects in focus, even when the kids and their sled go barreling past you.

Other things to do when bored with kids

When you’ve run out of things to do in the snow, head back to the house. There’s still lots more you can do indoors with your children. Here are a few ideas:

  • Make hot cocoa — with marshmallows, of course
  • Cook a family recipe together
  • Cut out and hang coffee filter snowflakes
  • List places to visit or new activities for the new year
  • Sort blankets, coats, and warm clothing to donate

And when you need a breather, hand over your motorola edge 5G UW to let them play a few games or video call with family. Use the Ready For feature to put your display on a larger screen, so you can join in while brewing a cup of coffee or relaxing on the sofa.

Snow day movies

If lazy and low key are more your style, there’s no need to even go outdoors. In fact, one of the best snow day activities can take place right in your living room.

Crawl into the nearest blanket fort and stream your family’s favorite Star Wars movies or Hulu shows, or catch the Winter Olympics on ESPN. You can access any and all of it with the Disney+ bundle. 

The dress code: pajamas. The menu: popcorn. The picture quality: stunning. Everything you watch will be crisp, vibrant, and seamless thanks to your 12.9” iPad Pro’s Liquid Retina XDR display and Verizon’s 5G connectivity.

After a full and exciting day, you’ll be glad you had the latest wireless tech to help you create some amazing memories.
