Home for the Holidays

As the song says, “there’s no place like home for the holidays.” This year, we understand those words in a brand new way! Many families are hunkering down to celebrate from their homes this holiday season amid the COVID-19 pandemic. No need to fear, there are still many ways to celebrate a quarantined Christmas.

Here are some activities to last you throughout the entire holiday season:

Bake Christmas Cookies:

Instead of buying prepacked cookie dough, look for your favorite homemade cookie recipe and get to baking. Assemble all of the ingredients and some fun cookie cutters, frostings, and decorations. Let each family members decorate several of their own cookies. You can even have a decorating contest and vote on which cookie is the best design!

Decorate the House: 

Since you’ll be spending more of your time inside this holiday season, make sure you pull out all of the decorations! Transform the space into a winter wonderland, a remake of the North Pole, or create a cozy Christmas look. Involve the entire family by allowing each family member to pick out one decoration that they want to add to the room.
