Do you own a log cabin, plan on renting one for vacation, or wish to purchase one in the near future? You’ve come to the right place.
Spending time in a log cabin, whether you own it or not, can be quite enjoyable for you and your family.
Below are some of the many great activities that log cabins can be used for to stay entertained and help combat that dreaded cabin fever.
1. Playing Board Games
There’s something about board games and log cabins. There’s a board game out there for everyone of every age. From classic chess or checkers to a more kid-friendly Chutes and Ladders or Candy Land, there are endless options.
The best part is some board games are super easy and are based on chance or luck while others are more complex and require the player to use their brain a little more. Consider having a collection of a variety of these different types of games to pick from.
Log cabins scream warm and cozy and, well, so does baking yummy treats. Does baking treat in a log cabin? That’s just icing on the cake!
Consider testing out new recipes with your loved ones while enjoying time in a cabin. Kick things up a notch by competing with your family members to see who can bake the tastiest or best-decorated treat.
3. Arts and Crafts
Being stuck in a log cabin for a long period of time is the perfect excuse to start getting crafty. Not to mention, art has many benefits on mental health and can certainly keep one busy.
With arts and crafts, the options are truly limitless. It can be as simple as practicing your drawing skills or even creating a scrapbook, making a collage with magazine cuttings, creating a sculpture out of clay, or making a dreamcatcher to hang in your bedroom.
Telling stories can be a great pastime activity. Storytelling can be in the form of telling ghost stories, funny fictional tales, or even real-life accounts. Real-life accounts might involve the most embarrassing thing you did, a mistake you made, how you got your first kiss or even a confession you’ve never told anyone before.
Tailor the stories around the audience. A more mature audience can enjoy more inappropriate or scarier stories. Meanwhile, a younger or mixed audience might prefer something more lighthearted or silly.
5. Movie Night
Sometimes the best form of entertainment for the whole family is making some buttery popcorn and putting on a good movie. It’s the perfect way to close up the night!
If you can’t decide on a movie to watch, have your family members vote on a genre and then narrow it down by movie title. Flip a coin or rock-paper-scissors if you get stuck on a couple of movies. Better yet, watch them both.
Owning a log cabin might not be the dream for everyone. Although, what many fail to consider is just how many indoor activities log cabins can accommodate. From baking to telling good old-fashioned stories, there isn’t much you can’t use your log cabin for!
