5 Xmas Activities for All Generations
5 Christmas Activities for all generations (Covid safe)!
Christmas this year will undoubtedly be different. With smaller gatherings, social distancing, and the challenge of showing loved ones you care, whilst still protecting them, it might feel really difficult.
However, we have compiled our top five Covid safe Christmas Fun ideas, that can be shared across the generations. Though different, Christmas is still full of tradition and spirit, and it’s that spirit that we need to remember because Christmas can still be that treasured and special time of year.
Without further ado, here are our top 5 Christmas Activities for all generations (Covid safe)!
1. Give an unexpected Gift
This year has shown us all how important essential workers are, and also how much we cherish the time we can spend with friends and family. Why not give a small gift to somebody who has had a difficult year or somebody you are grateful for? Find your nearest care home, leave something for your postman or deliver a special something to the NHS nurse you know down the road! Kindness goes a long way.
2. Christmas Baking
This year has definitely been a year for the bakers amongst us! And perhaps it has all been leading up to making the perfect Christmas treats. If you are spending time with your family over the holiday, it’s a fun activity to do together, and if not, you could organise a socially distanced biscuit swap on Christmas Eve!
3. Christmas Zoom Pictionary
Yes, we have had our fair share of zoom quizzes this year… but you could spice things up by doing zoom Pictionary with your grandparents, or cousins you cannot visit. You could make it Christmas themed and see how your angel art and Santa sketches go down! All you need is a device for zoom, pencil and paper and a bit of Christmas spirit.
4. Christmas Card Making
Everybody knows how special a hand drawn card or letter is. Is there a special family member or friend you know would love something thoughtful like this? It is something that all the family can all get involved in on Christmas eve on the dining room table, and then go out to deliver your letters and cards the night before Christmas! There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest for what to draw or write!
5. Make a Christmas playlist
One of the most important things to get right is the perfect Christmas playlist. If you are going to be with your grandparents on Christmas Day, perhaps you could include some of the classics they may love, like ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ by Frank Sinatra, or ‘White Christmas’ by Bing Crosby. Equally, if the kids are about put on some ‘Santa Tell Me’ by Ariana Grande and have some fun dancing around!
