20 Things to do in February for Family Fun

I have lived in Wisconsin my whole life. As a child February was all about Valentines and sledding. What do you think of when you think of February? Valentine’s Day and candy hearts? Snow and cold? Getting out of dodge and hopping on an airplane? At Lake Country Family Fun, we love living in Wisconsin, and we believe in family fun year-round!

Now as an adult and parent, when I think of February, I think of all of those things cold weather: snow, sledding, ice skating, snowmobiling, and Valentines Day, too. Which can be so much fun; it’s all about your mindset. You can find my family loving snow, especially sledding and snowmobiling. It’s great February fun, especially when the kiddos are old enough to dress themselves 😁 

In Wisconsin, there is lots of family friendly fun to be found, because winter is 8 months long. 🤪 Ha! It sure feels like it some days. Luckily, Lake Country Family Fun has looked for you, sifted through the information, and organized 20 fun things to do with your family in February!!

Check out these fun events below that take place in and around town this month to fight the winter blues.  For even more fun don’t forget to check out Lake Country Family Fun’s huge event calendar and indoor play guide!

Plus, February 2020 is a LEAP Year! Everyone gets an extra day of fun 🙂
