Over the Christmas period, there’s usually a lot going on, and if you’re looking for a relaxing activity to do with the family, we’ve got 6 right here. Each one will help you unwind, spend quality time together and enjoy some festive fun! So, let’s explore them now.
1. Bake Holiday Treats
People often don’t think of cooking as a creative activity, but it really is one! A great way to spend some time over the holidays is by doing some baking! Whether it’s Christmas cookies or a festive-themed cake to enjoy together, baking is always a fun activity to do with your loved ones. Plus, you can enjoy the result of your activity afterwards too!
2. Paint Festive Pictures
Painting is an awesome year-round creative activity, and you can easily make it a festive one by choosing a Christmassy theme or winter landscape to paint. This is an activity for all ages, experiences and abilities, so perfect for some family fun.
If you’re not a painting pro, then no worries, you can still enjoy the therapeutic benefits of painting with something a little less challenging. Why not get yourself a custom paint by numbers kit so you can still get creative but without the pressure!
3. Make Your Own Decorations
Get everyone in the festive spirit by making your own Christmas decorations. Whether it’s ornaments for the tree or garlands for your house, you can make lovely festive decorations with everyday household objects. All you need to do is provide the glitter, glue and paint, and you can have beautiful decorations in no time. This is always a fun way to spend a winter’s afternoon and get everybody in the mood to celebrate and be merry.
4. Build a Snowman
You’ll need to live somewhere where you get snow in the winter for this one! Recreate that magical scene from Frozen and get out in the winter air for this creative activity, and build your very own snowman. You can bring him to life with his own scarf, carrot nose and button eyes! The best part about this one is that you can warm up with a hot cup of cocoa afterwards!
5. Create Your Own Christmas Cards
Another creative but also festive activity to do over the holidays is to make your own Christmas cards. Whether you get the paints out, use colorful markers or create 3D cards with craft objects, get the whole family together to spread some festive cheer. Besides, who doesn’t appreciate a handmade Christmas card?
6. Complete a Jigsaw Puzzle
If you’d rather stay inside in the warmth and enjoy some quality time with the people you love most, then this last activity might be the best one for you. Flex your creative muscles by getting out a jigsaw puzzle to complete together. This one provides hours and sometimes days of fun, plus can be done while you settle in and watch a Christmas movie together too!
