By: Katherine Sweat


There are many fun winter activities that your family can enjoy together this Christmas break. Painting with a Twist, a art class located in three addresses- 2415 Callahan Dr, Knoxville, 121 S Gay St, Knoxville, TN 37902, 11000 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37934- is a fun indoor activity that provides a perfect opportunity to have fun and stay warm. The company allows you to choose what class you want to take and a professional art instructor is provided to lead you step by step in creating your own painting. If you enjoy the cool breeze on your face, there are many outdoor activities in Tennessee too. Ice skating rinks can be found throughout Knoxville. In fact, there is a temporary rink open in Market Square until January 5th. This ice skating rink offers magical twinkling lights that set the mood of the holiday spirit- just make sure to bring warm gloves. Another popular winter activity, located all over Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is skiing. Ober Gatlinburg, gives families the opportunity to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. If you don’t own the proper materials to try out these snow sports, no worries! This resort offers equipment rentals for you and your family to enjoy while on the slopes. Looking for a last minute Christmas fun? Take a trip to Pigeon Forge’s Winterfest Driving Tour of Lights. This is a driving tour that showcases thousands of beautiful, sparkling lights.

These are only a few of the activities that your family can enjoy while school is out. Take the opportunity to get out of the house and experience different adventures with friends and family. You never know what new holiday traditions may form.
