Since the holidays are here, you’re probably going to have friends or family in town to enjoy time with you. The hardest part is picking something. In this week’s Sunset Palms Blog, we’ve got a short list of holiday activities you could engage in to enjoy your time this December.
Make a Gingerbread House
Gingerbread houses are a holiday staple and the perfect activity for a winter’s day. Head to the store to get some graham crackers, frosting, and candy. Get any candy you like, but gummies and candy canes are some of the regular candy chosen for gingerbread houses. Building gingerbread houses are a fun activity to do with children, albeit a little messy. So create some memories! Make it a competition or just do it for the photos and smiles, either way, have fun!
Do you remember coming home to the sweet smell of cookies? Create that smell in your own home by baking your own cookies! There are plenty of cookie recipes to choose from, so pick one, then get baking! You can choose to keep these cookies for yourself or use them as a gift to give to the people you care about.
If you’re the type of person who puts up a holiday tree, you’re going to need some ornaments. Sure, you’ve probably bought some ornaments from the store, but there is something satisfying and fun about creating your own ornaments to put on your tree. Creating your own ornament allows you or the kids in your family to make a mark on a family tradition of putting up holiday decorations.
