Are you feeling like winter will never end? At this time of year when the winter blahs are catching, the best remedy is a little sun, sand and surf. But if a beach holiday is beyond your budget, there are lots of fun activities you can do at home that will bring the sunshine to you. Try a few of these hot ideas to help you make it through to spring.

  •  Host a Hawaiian theme party. Say an early “Aloha” to spring! Invite friends over, welcoming them with leis and fruity umbrella drinks—try Michael’s for party supplies. Serve pineapple, mango, banana bread, and other luau delights, and be sure to check the Save-On-Foods, Loblaws and Sobey’s flyers for weekly specials. Don’t forget the loud, brightly coloured shirts!
  • Plan a sunshine movie night. Watch movies set in sunny locales. Try the recent Couples Retreat or old favourites like Shirley Valentine, Cocktail, Summer Rental and more—see the Wal-Mart flyer for movie deals. Then just add shorts, flip flops and snacks.
  • Play at an indoor water park. Take the family for a slipping, sliding day of fun at an indoor water park. There are several to choose from in the Niagara region. Be sure to check Flyerland.ca for travel specials and savings.
  • Escape for the weekend. Take advantage of the travel deals on Flyerland.ca, and book your weekend stay at a hotel with a pool—don’t forget to pack your swimsuit. You can relax by the water and pretend you’re in a tropical destination.
  • Treat yourself to a spa day. A day of pampering always makes the sun shine brighter so visit the spa with your friends or spouse. Turn up the heat by taking a soothing sauna or unwinding in the hot tub and create a spa at home. Check out the Shoppers Drug Mart flyer for all your spa necessities!
  • Get outside! Enjoy the great outdoors by taking a hike or planning a ski day. This is a wonderful time of year to be outside in the fresh air. If the sun is shining, put on your shades and indulge in a little après ski on the patio.
