Festive Activities to Try This Christmas

Nothing quite says festive season like getting together with family and friends and immersing in fun activities. As you get older it seems less important to get involved in the festive activities but this post is going to give you some fun ideas to get you in the holiday spirit.  

Make Decorations Out Of Old Christmas Cards 

I'm sure we all have a huge pile of old Christmas cards that each year we add to, never knowing what to really do with them. Well this activity is going to be a fun way to reuse your old cards and turn them into Christmas decorations and gifting tags. We love this article for 6 ways to reuse and recycle Christmas cards. 

Board Game Mania 

If you are the kind of family that likes to get competitive, then it's time to dig out those old board games. Board games are an amazing way to enjoy quality time with loved ones of all ages. If you're worried you might have thrown out your old games, then we suggest going to your local charity shop for not only a discounted price but a sustainable alternative to purchasing games. 

We think the article by housebeautiful has put together a list of some of the most entertaining board games that we guarantee you will love. 

Christmas Baking 

The Christmas period is all about treating yourself and to us that means indulging in our favourite food, i mean that's what January resolutions are for right? We don't know about you but there's just something about baking this time of year that feels so cosy and festive. We love this idea especially as it makes a great activity to do with both loved ones and alone because we deserve some special alone time once in a while. 

For our vegan readers we love this article on vegan Christmas treats! 

And for those readers who aren't we have linked an article with 99 recipes for you to try! 

Christmas Movies 

We don't know about you, but nothing quite says downtime like a movie with snacks and we think Christmas movies make staying in extra special. Christmas movies never disappoint and that's probably why we are happy to rewatch them each year round. But with so many options it can become quite a task looking through the options and having to decide on just one to watch. So to make your movie night easier for you we have put together a list of our all time favourite Christmas movies to watch so grab your popcorn you're in for a treat!

  1. Elf 
  2. The Holiday 
  3. The Polar Express 
  4. Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey 
  5. A Christmas Carol 
  6. The Santa Clause 
  7. The Christmas Chronicles 

Visit your local Christmas market 

If you're somebody who doesn't love staying in, we think Christmas markets would make the perfect Christmas activity for you! We guarantee each market will be different but expect to see yummy food stalls, the best hot choc in town, gifting ideas, and even rides! 

We have given you just a few of our favourite Christmas activities to try out this holiday period, but there are so many more things to do if these aren't appealing to you. We urge you to spend your time doing the things you love the most, and making the most of your Christmas break with your loved one. The best present you can give yourself this Christmas is a bit of self love!
