10 Fun Things to Do in Your Garden Home When It’s Just Too Cold Outside

10 Fun Things to Do in Your Garden Home When It’s Just Too Cold Outside

Host a Movie Night in Your Garden Home in Georgetown

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful.” Ok, well it’s probably not that bad, but it certainly can be chilly in Central Texas during the winter months. Residents of the exclusive new Gardens at Verde Vista low-maintenance homes don’t have to let the cold weather slow them down.

Here are 10 Fun Things to do inside a new villa and garden home in Georgetown.

1. Dust off the recipe box and get cooking. Cold days are perfect for cooking your favorite meals or doing batch cooking in your gourmet Gardens at Verde Vista kitchen. Let the grandkids pick a favorite cookie recipe and teach them how to bake. You’ll be making wonderful memories together while creating delicious treats.

2. Host a mini film festival. Do a marathon screening of a favorite show or movie series or let the grandkids pick their favorite cartoons. Pop up a bowl of hot fresh popcorn or make a few snacks and make it an eat-in home theater.

3. Snuggle up with a good book. Read that book you’ve been meaning to start or pick up an old classic and cozy up in front of your garden home fireplace.

4. Practice your green thumb. Start an indoor garden herb garden that you can cultivate and use in your cooking all winter long. Or get a jump on spring by starting your favorite vegetables from seed so they’re ready to transfer outside to your courtyard garden when the weather is warmer.

Practice Your Green Thumb


5. Pamper yourself. Retreat to your garden home or villa master suite for an in-home spa day and some luxury self-care. Make a homemade oatmeal scrub and treat your skin to a little extra nourishing then fill up a bubble bath and sit back and relax.

6. Plan your next vacation. Don’t just daydream about when you’ll lock-and-leave your garden home for an exciting getaway. Use your time inside to research places you’ve always wanted to visit and if the grandkids are there get them in on the fun by pulling out the maps or globe and charting your course together.

7. Make it a no batteries game day. Turn off the TV and all electronics and pull out the board games, cards, dominos or any of your favorite games for some friendly competition that gets everyone in on the fun.

8. Bring the great outdoors inside. Kids love making forts and camping out even inside the house. Grab the sleeping bags and camp out in front of the fireplace or set up a fort in the living area. Have a picnic in the fort and sing camp songs.

9. Kick up your heels. Being stuck inside doesn’t mean you need to sit around; and if the grandkids are over, they’ll likely have some wiggles to work out. Put on some fun music and have a dance party in your garden home living area. The grandkids will get a kick out of dancing with you, and you’ll both get some exercise and feel great!

10. Get crafty. Finish up those craft projects you’ve started or make a clean break and start fresh. Learn to draw or paint. Sew something for your grandkids or teach them how to sew themselves.

Take advantage of the cooler days to spend more time doing what you love with family and friends in a stunning new Gardens at Verde Vista courtyard garden home or villa built by award-winning local Central Texas builders, Spicewood Communities.
