Assemble a make-ahead breakfast
Opening presents takes a lot of energy, and so you’ll want to refuel afterward with a hearty breakfast. Try one you can prep the night before so all you have to do on Christmas morning is pop it in the oven.
Decorate Christmas cookies
Baking cookies is a great daytime activity to make your home smell delicious. Before you get started, make sure you have some fun cookie cutters, frostings, and decorations on hand.
Hop on a video call with Santa
Getting to meet Santa is a magical experience for many youngsters during the holiday season. Unfortunately, they might not get to see Saint Nick in person this year — but that doesn’t mean they can’t chat with him on the phone. Use Santa Club to book a video conversation with Kris Kringle. The $50 experience includes up to three children and even allows you to keep a recording of the video.
Decorate as festively as possible
You’re going to spend a lot of time at home this holiday season, so you might as well make your space the winter wonderland of your dreams. Set a budget and pick up some new decorations or open your craft bin and make some DIY ones.
Holiday Virgin Cocktails
There are so many festive winter flavors that taste incredible in cocktails but for fun with the kiddos, make them virgins so they can sip like the adults do too! Find a recipe you’re interested in and whip up a batch of drinks on Christmas morning. A warm stovetop option is a cozy way to celebrate the season.
Make Christmas masks
You can make these cute masks out of paper plates for a fun Christmas craft. And when you’re done, you can use them to take photo booth-style pictures to commemorate the holiday.
Put together a holiday puzzle.
Doing a puzzle is a relaxing way to spend Christmas day or night. While you work, be sure to set the mood with a fire or candle
Make a commemorative ornament
The 2020 holiday season is bound to be unique — so why not make an ornament to remember it by? Mix a salt dough recipe (all you need is flour, salt, and water) and make a handprint or cookie-cutter ornament. Don’t forget to write the year in paint.
Read a Christmas book
Reading a book on the sofa is a cozy way to get in the Christmas spirit. Let the kids pick out a book and read it to them while eating some holiday snacks. For a more grown up activity, flip through a favorite romance novel or poetry book.
Sing Christmas karaoke
You don’t need to be a musical family or friend group to have fun belting out holiday tunes during Christmas karaoke. Take this game up a notch by investing in a karaoke mic.
Mail a gift to a loved one
If you’re not seeing certain loved ones this year due to safety concerns, make sure to send them a gift in the mail to show them they’re in your thoughts. You can never go wrong with something edible.
Host a virtual party
Just because you can’t get together in person doesn’t mean you can’t see your friends and family on Christmas. Send everyone a Zoom link and host your party online. Make sure you’ve got a few games and conversation starters ready too.
