With the holidays right around the corner, you might once more have a slightly crowded home with kids and grandkids visiting. And while some states still have restrictions or it may be too cold to do much, you may have to get a little creative trying to find a way to keep yourself and your grandchildren entertained. Here are a few tips and ideas for some fun, safe activities to enjoy the mood of the holiday season!
There’s no better way to enjoy the holiday season than to go see all the lights. Maybe you don’t want to drive far to find a lightshow — that’s OK! There are plenty of houses and neighborhoods that have their own lightshows with coordinated music! A quick Google search will help you find some places in your area. Whether you drive through neighborhoods or visit lightshows nearby, Christmas lights are fun for any age.
For many, the holidays come with many traditions — be it family gatherings, church services, or even recipes. Baking is a great way to pass down family recipes, spark interesting conversations, and (hopefully) end in some delicious creations. Even if your family doesn’t have any secret recipes passed down through generations, you can still find plenty of fun, creative ideas online!
Maybe you’re the type who likes to wait until later in the holiday season to finish wrapping those presents. Try enlisting those grandkids for some extra help! You’ll get a chance to take care of those last-minute holiday tasks while enjoying some quality time with your grandchildren. Turn on some music, brew up some cozy beverages, and get to wrapping!
Regardless of how you decide to spend your time with your loved ones, enjoy making those holiday memories that will last a lifetime!
