Stuck looking for activities to do with your family for the holidays? It can be boring doing the same thing over and over again ever year, so why not try something new for a change? Here is a range of new and interesting ideas to try and implement into a new holiday tradition.
1. Taking The Family To An Escape Room
An escape room can be one of the best ways to increase family bonding. By putting your heads together, you might able to solve one of the Escape Games Boston and have bragging rights so that you can show off to your friends. Escape rooms usually take place for about 60 minutes each, where you try to solve puzzles and find the right clues in order to escape the room.
2. Having A White Elephant Gift Exchange
A White Elephant Gift Exchange is a great event to hold with your family, especially if there are young children involved. It’s a unique spin on the concept of “Secret Santa” where instead of exchanging gifts, you all compete in order to get the best presents. The concept of the game is that one person starts opening a present, and the next person in line can choose to open one or steal a gift from another person. If your gift is stolen, you can choose to open a new one or steal another one from someone else.
3. Volunteering As A Family
Nothing is better than giving back during the holiday season, and that means volunteering to help those who are in need. It could be a few hours at a soup kitchen or bringing supplies to homeless shelters.
4. Painting The Snow
You won’t have to worry about hurting the environment with this outdoor activity. Just add some food coloring to some water and pour it into some spray bottles, and go to town with making the snow different colors.
5. Having a Pajama Party with Christmas Movies
On the first day of December, Christmas music starts playing. That’s when the holiday movies start showing up on TV too. So why not have fun with it by having everyone come over in their pajamas and enjoy a few Christmas movies together after dinner?
6. Attending Community Events
Schools and local community groups are always putting on shows and plays during the holiday season, and for reasonable prices as well. It doesn’t hurt to give back and attend a few of these shows for some Christmas entertainment while still showing support for your community.
7. Decorating Together
Why not rotate whose house is going to be picked each year for decorating? You can get even more fun out of it if you choose a theme to go with so that everyone tries their best to outdo everyone else in the decorating department.
Spending time with family and making memories during the holidays doesn’t have to mean doing the same thing every year. It’s about having fun, celebrating, and making unique memories that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
