The end of the holiday season is always a sad time for our Instagram feeds. There’s so much fodder for posting in December—from DIY cards to Christmas tree shopping and holiday markets. But if you think the end of the holiday season means the decline of your Instagram posts, you’d be wrong. Holiday lights may make your profile sparkle, but there’s plenty of fun activities this winter that can make it shine. There’s nothing better than showing off to your friends all your cool experiences during the season. Check out the top 5 activities that will light up your Instagram this winter.

#1 – Time to jump off Santa’s sleigh—go dog sledding instead!
There’s nothing better than spending a day hanging out with cute dogs out in the wilds of Ontario. Plan a day of de-stressing at Toronto Adventures for 45 minutes of dog sledding as well as many other winter-warming activities. Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before, because the staff will start off with “mushing lessons” to prepare you. The best part is having delicious hot chocolate and s’mores after your dog sledding adventure. Or rather, would be the best part be having photos of your new furry friends on your Instagram?
#2 – Ditch backyard tobogganing for a day of snow tubing
It doesn’t have to be summer at Canada’s Wonderland for you to get the adrenaline rush you love. A family get-together at Horseshoe Resort is the perfect activity for laughs and memories you won’t forget. An unlimited tubing pass for one person goes for as little as $10–$15! Make sure you remember to take some crazy group photos before you leave to show off on your Instagram.
#3 – Let off some steam with an axe throwing session
Sometimes you just have to go wild and let your bad lumberjack side loose. This unique activity is all the rage! Upgrade from playing darts at your local pub and find out who’s a natural axe thrower in your group of friends at Bad Axe Throwing. They have locations all around Toronto—you’re going to want to make it your new hangout spot. Plus, all your Instagram pals will be impressed when you hit the bull’s eye with an axe.
#4 – Bulk up for the season on a food tour
Let’s admit it, you’re lacking food pictures on your Instagram. Here’s your chance to up your game and satisfy your food cravings at the same time. The Culinary Adventure Company offers food tours around popular areas in Toronto, like Little Italy, the St. Lawrence Market, and Chinatown. Looking for dessert? Try Tasty Tours to indulge your sweet tooth and show off some eye candy on Instagram.
#5 – Get your hands dirty at a pottery class
Have you ever seen other people’s DIY projects and thought, “I want to make something hip like that”? Well, you can take it a step further and take up pottery making as a hobby. The Gardiner Museum offers drop-in pottery classes for only $15, and the classes are instructed by professional ceramists. Way better than following random DIY instructions on the internet, right? Show off your pottery creations on Instagram, and you’ll be a step closer to being able to call yourself an artist.
