Looking for some fun family activities this winter that don't require a huge budget? Whether you want to leave the house or stay bundled up indoors, we have all the affordable holiday fun for everyone of all ages to enjoy. Try these festivities this season and maybe you’ll start a new tradition!

Make a Gingerbread House
When it comes to indoor activities, you can't go wrong with a gingerbread house. See who in the family can come up with the best gingerbread house design. Decorate with a variety of candy, frosting, and cookies to make your tasty creations.

Go Caroling 
Caroling is one of our favorite family activities that's totally free, and it can help make someone else's holiday season special. Practice your favorite Christmas songs, and sing for your loved ones. 

Make a Pinecone Bird Feeder
If your idea of fun indoor activities includes crafts, here's an easy one. Find a pinecone outside, cover it in peanut butter and bird seed, and attach a ribbon to it. Hang it outside for the birds. 

Watch Holiday Movies
Movie night is one of the ultimate family activities. Have a holiday-themed one by choosing a classic favorite or movie you haven't seen yet

Make Christmas Cards for Family 
Brighten the holiday season with homemade cards from your kids. You just need paper and art supplies that you probably already have around the house. 

Cook Together 
If eating is one of your favorite indoor activities, try baking a holiday treat or cooking up a fun, easy meal. Enjoy it while watching your favorite holiday movie. 

See a Play 
Get out of the house for some holiday fun, and go see a play. Find a local school or community theater doing a holiday-themed performance that's free or cheap to attend. 

Make Paper Snowflakes 
As a child, one of your favorite winter activities was probably making paper snowflakes. Now is the perfect time to introduce this easy craft to your kids!

Play in the Snow 
If you have snow on the ground, take advantage of it. Build a snowman or go sledding, and don't forget the hot cocoa after to warm you up.

Write Letters to Santa 
Have your kids write letters to Santa, telling him what they want this year. You can drop them off at your local post office together.

Visit the Library 
Looking for something that's completely free? Visit the library to check out holiday-themed books. You may even find a story hour or craft classes on the schedule. 

Roast Marshmallows 
Roasting marshmallows isn't just for summer. If it's not too cold outside, it may become of one of your favorite winter activities, too. 

Admire Holiday Lights 
No holiday season is complete without a drive around town to check out the lights. Have everyone choose their favorite display. 

Attend Local Events 
Check out your community calendar to see when the local holiday parade or Christmas tree lighting will take place. Put it on your schedule, and make it a family affair.
