The holidays are over! For some it’s the end of stress, and for others it’s the end of a season of comfort and joy. Before you end up like Veruca Salt and turn into a winter blues-berry, make sure you read these tips on how to have some winter fun and keep your brand new 2020 budget intact!

(Visiting a chocolate factory isn’t on the list, but maybe it should be!)

Discover offers up eight ideas to save yourself and your family from boredom. A zoo or aquarium offers a fantastic learning opportunity with a lower amount of foot traffic. Play peak-a-boo with a tiger or watch some fish in school dart around their habitat. Either way, it’s a day you’ll never forget!

Smart Asset has 13 winter activities to try, and we’re most keen on finding a new hobby. Try your hand at knitting, painting or anything else that gets your creative juices flowing! Looking to find others to join in the fun? Check out Meetup and find people in your area with similar interests!

U.S. News & World Report throws a list of 11 free and cheap ways to spend your winter. Our top choice is volunteering in your community. There are plenty of opportunities to help out those in need in your area, like Escape Ministries  in Holland or Check out VolunteerMatch to find an activity that speaks to your heart.

One of our absolute favorite activities is saving money! Collect bottles, run a side hustle or sell off trash as treasure. While you’re building up your savings account, take the time to daydream about your summer vacation and escape the winter blues with a little good ol’ imagination.
