This weeks post is a little different, I want to focus on mental health and general wellbeing. Christmas is such a lovely time of year, it often passes by so quickly, leaving us thinking we should have been more festive!
So I’m going to share some fun Christmas activity ideas you can do with your family and friends to make the most of the festive season!
1. Create a Christmas movie list
This is something I love to do every year with my family! There is nothing better than snuggling up with a blanket, a hot drink and watching a great movie!
Making a list also gets you super excited, here are some ideas for your Christmas movie list:
- Home alone 1 & 2
- The Christmas Chronicles 1 & 2 (Netflix)
- The Grinch (2018)
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
- Love Actually
2. Go to a Christmas Market
Christmas markets are absolutely beautiful, there is so much to enjoy including:
- Christmas lights
- Traditional food and drinks
- Gift buying
- Decoration Inspo and buying
- Ice skating
- Meeting Santa with little ones
You can also find some amazing gifts to support small local businesses.
The majority of Christmas markets are outdoors which is great for COVID. Being outdoors helps to decrease the spread of the virus, so if you are worried about COVID, this might be a good activity to choose!
3. Get baking!
I absolutely love baking, especially during the Christmas season! So grab a family member, or a friend and get in the kitchen!
Here are some ideas!:
- Christmas cake
- Chocolate Yule log
- Ginger oat cookies
- Mince pies
- Reindeer short bread biscuits
4. Host a Christmas cocktail competition
Obviously this one is more for adults, I usually split everyone into teams of two (you can do it individually!) and every team has to come up with and make a cocktail.
After trying every cocktail, each team votes which one is the best. It can get quite competitive, but I think it’s great fun!
Some other Christmas activity ideas:
- Complete a Christmas puzzel
- Build a gingerbread house
- Make mulled wine
- Play secret Santa
- Make your own decorations
- Christmas photoshoot
