Many of us are not straying too far from home this holiday season, instead filling our days with family and friends. This is just one of the reasons this is my favourite time of year. Looking for a ways to stay warm and entertained? Here are just a few of my top picks.
- Living Room S’mores
As a fair weather outdoors enthusiast, this is my guilty pleasure! If like me you still have a wood-burning fireplace, pull out the marshmallows and roasting sticks and enjoy the light of the fire with a little treat.No fireplace? No problem, whip up a batch of these delicious delights in your kitchen and layout a blanket to enjoy them picnic style with your favourite people. You can even find a little fireplace magic here.
- Let the Games Begin!
Nothing like a little healthy competition to keep spirits bright! Dust off the board games and find the grand champion by having the winner of each round take on the next challenger until everyone has had a chance to play. Fun prizes like first pick at the holiday baking or the chance to choose the holiday movie are great stakes.Don’t worry if your board game selection is a little low. Charades and a homemade version of Pictionary are both easy and fun for all ages to participate in.
- Create Your Own Film Festival
In my house more thought goes into the snacks to accompany holiday movies than anything else. This part of our holiday tradition is kind of a big deal. My kids have their favourites and if I can stay up long enough I save mine for after they’ve hit the sack. Check out the list of the top 25 holiday movies Rotten Tomatoes has put together to get started or poll your crowd to create your own line up, pop the corn and stock up on licorice (strawberry, of course).
No matter how you enjoy the holidays with family and friends this year, we wish you the very best! Happy holidays from the InsureMy team and me!
