Now that the weather is going to start getting chillier here in Denver in the coming months, you may be wondering how you can spend your time hunkered down indoors! We’ve gathered a few ideas for how you can spend your days inside when it is cold out.
Bake something yummy
The possibilities are endless when it comes to baking in your Velo home. Not only will you be able to fill your belly with delicious treats, but you will also be able to fill your home with the amazing smell of whatever baked goods you are whipping up. Two of our favorite places to find baking recipes and recipes, in general, are The Modern Proper and Half Baked Harvest.
Board games. Card games. Make up a game. Spice it up and make it a tournament-style game day. Games are a great way to tap into your competitive side!
They are inexpensive, educational, and will keep you and your family occupied for hours! Make sure to dedicate an area of your Velo home to putting together your puzzles to ensure that nobody accidentally messes it up.
We are all for vegging out and watching movies all day. Make a bowl of popcorn or a few snacks and pick out some movies from your ‘watch list’ that you’ve been meaning to see. On top of that, get in some quality time with your significant other, family, or furry friends.
Arts and crafts and DIYs
The cooler days are the perfect time to explore your creative side. Whether you just decide to paint or draw, or build and make something for your home, doing arts, crafts and DIYs is the perfect way to spend a day stuck inside and the possibilities are endless! Try searching on Pinterest for some fun ideas if you aren’t sure what to create.
If you’ve been meaning to get some cleaning done, cold days are the perfect time to check that off of your to-do list. Whether it’s sweeping, dusting, or folding laundry, make it fun! Play some tunes and dance around the house while you transform it into a spotless oasis.
