Christmas it is looking quite a bit different this year so we’ve put together a list of simple and inexpensive activities to do this Christmas.
1. Make & send Christmas cards
Why not take some time to make a beautiful Christmas card for your friends or family which you can drop through their letter box. If you need to post your card make sure its in the letter box by Dec 18th so it can be delivered before Christmas day.
2.Get outside & see Christmas lights
You don’t need to go to fancy displays to see beautiful Christmas lights, try walking around your town or village and see what kind of decorations the neighbours have put out.
3.Build marshmallow snowman
4.Do some Christmas crafts
5.Ping Pong Stocking
Two players stand on opposite ends of a table, holding an open Christmas stocking. Bounce or toss a small ball across the table aiming for your opponent’s stocking. Get the ball in the stocking and win 1 point. Whoever has the most points after 12 rounds wins!
6.Christmas Scavenger Hunt
So you know how a normal treasure works, why not upgrade it using Christmas items you can find around your home – maybe a Christmas jumper or one of your favourite decorations? Try writing out some clues to help friends and family find the treasure – or maybe a mince pie waiting at the finish!
8.Watch Christmas movies
If you’re unable to or don’t wish to get together with other people this Christmas you could try watching movies remotely. You can watch movies with your friends/family on Netflix and Disney+ by downloading and using the Teleparty (formerly Netflix Party) Chrome and Edge extension or on Amazon Prime by using Amazon’s Watch Party.
