The holidays are finally here! This season is a little different than it was in the past but that shouldn’t stop you from having a great time. There are so many safe and fun things to do this year so here are five ideas to get you started.
1. Making Ornaments
This year has been unforgettable in many ways, but it’s almost over! Make an ornament to remember this rollercoaster of a year whether its just to customize your tree or to make lasting memories. You could use anything from some construction paper to real clear ornaments and make whatever your heart desires. They could even be great personal gifts to give out this holiday season!
2. Hot Cocoa Bombs
We already know that everyone loves a good cup of hot cocoa on a chilly winter night, but what if we jazz it up a little? You can make a chocolate shell and stick your normal hot cocoa mix and marshmallows right inside. Then all you have to do is heat up some milk, drop it in, and watch it make chocolatey, rich, delicious hot cocoa. Hot cocoa bombs are simple to make and fun for the whole family. Check out the recipe below and try it out today!
3. Driving Around to See Lights
Christmas lights and holiday decorations are finally up! From simple string lights to light show extravaganzas, driving around to see lights can be a picture perfect holiday experience. Your city may even have a drive through lights show this holiday season where you can tune into a holiday radio station as you drive around. Especially in the times of the pandemic, this activity is COVID safe and loads of fun!
4. Holiday Movie Marathon
The Grinch, Home Alone, Elf, there are so many holiday classics to watch! Do a movie a night or maybe all of them at once! So snuggle up in some fuzzy socks with your popcorn and hot chocolate and get ready to get in the holiday spirit.
5. Gingerbread House Contest
It can’t be a holiday season without some good old-fashioned competition. This can be a great activity for kids or adults alike. So bake some gingerbread or buy a gingerbread house kit and have some fun!
There are loads of things to do this holiday season even with the circumstances we face. No matter what you do, remember to cherish all of the memories that have been made this year and cherish the time you spend with family and friends. Stay safe and have a great holiday season!
