We’re already fully in the holiday spirit here at Buckshaw Hub! If you don’t love all things Christmas, this blog probably isn’t for you. But if you do, stick around because we’re going to share some fabulously festive activities for you to do with your family on the run-up to the big day!
If you’re being a bit of a Grinch and haven’t decorated your house already, get to it! There’s no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than putting up the tree and styling your home with twinkly lights and tinsel galore.
If you want to go all out this year, a quick Pinterest search will bring up a ton of decoration inspiration in every colour in the rainbow! Once you’ve found your style, gather the family, put on some Christmas music and get to work.
The festive period is all about eating anything and everything, right? Including lots of sweet treats! Nothing says Christmas like walking into your house to the smell of cookies in the oven and Michael Buble blasting through the stereo.
BBC good food has some great recipe ideas for adults and kids that are sure to make the whole family feel Merry! Including mince pies, gingerbread men and houses, elf and Santa cookies and the classic yule log.
Crafting is a great way to keep the kids occupied during the weekends running up to Christmas. The things you create will make for lovely personal holiday decorations that you can use anywhere in your home and are also great for gifting.
From Christmas cards to paper chains, Rudolf baubles and snowmen made of toilet roles, The Hub at Riverside has a blog with some super fun Christmas craft ideas that their nursery kids love.
Make the festive period extra fun by playing some original games. For kids games, pin the nose on the snowman, stocking guessing game and candy cane hunts are some great options!
But games aren’t just for kids; they’re fun for people of all ages – especially when they’re Christmas themed. From charades and Pictionary to drinking games, The Spruce has some fantastic Christmas adult game ideas.
From all of us at The Hub, we wish you a very Merry Christmas with your nearest and dearest!
