Christmas is a time to do all sorts of festive things with your family- from the comfort of traditional activities to trying something new. You can never be bored with so many things to do this time of year! Read on to find out our top ideas, but if you have any other suggestions, let us know in the comments!
There are endless ways to craft handmade decorations and gifts for both your home and friends. A simple but effective way to start is by giving reusable, natural materials such as pine cones and twigs a new life. Spray paint them in festive metallic colours and attach them to an ornament – or even the tree! If you’ve kept craft materials from last Christmas, now’s your chance to use them for something special. For example, handmade cardboard boxes are a personal way to wrap a small present. Caught the arty bug? You can gather plenty more inspiring of craft ideas on Pinterest.
Traditional Things to do
England has several traditional activities and Christmassy events around the country to entertain the whole family. Pantomimes and nativities are fun and interactive ways to get the kids involved. Ice skating is a great new skill to learn, and it gets a few laughs when someone falls over spectacularly! Top your evening off with a few glasses of mulled wine whilst listening to the carol singers, and you’ll have a brilliant night out. Don’t forget to wrap up nice and warm in a men’s hat and scarf set or a women’s knitted set!
One of the biggest things to look forward to on the big day is the delicious Christmas meal – and the yummy puddings to follow! A traditional roast has a sense of comfort to it, but why not add a twist by making smaller nibbles such as stuffing and pasties out of the leftover ingredients as an after-dinner snack? There are plenty of options available to cater for all tastes, and the web is bursting with new and creative ideas!
