In this article, you will get all information regarding Twenty-Six Ideas for Holiday Fun
It’s the holiday season. What is your stress level? Are you looking for fun and inexpensive ways to celebrate the holiday season stress-free? Renowned life coach Tony Robbins offers some great advice on kid-friendly activities for the holidays. (Some of these you can do without being a kid—just be a kid yourself). Think about how many of these activities you’ve actually done in recent years.
1. Make a Gingerbread House – I confess I’ve never tried this one.
2. Holiday Lights Tour – Michigan International Speedway, Toledo Zoo’s Lights and Indian Creek Zoo in Temperance are a few options.
3. Pinecone Bird Feeder – Using a pinecone, smear it with peanut butter, dip it in bird seed, hang it up.
4. Decorate Your Front Door (Or Your Child’s) Like a Gift
5. Holiday Movie Night – Pick your favorite or tune in to Hallmark.
6. Popcorn and Cranberry Garland – I haven’t hit popcorn in years and never tried cranberry.
7. Red and Green Paper Chains – I remember making these in grade school. This time write something on each of the series.
8. Go Caroling – Our church choir gives a carol every year at our shut-in and we go to a retirement home. It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit—guaranteed.
9. Attend a Holiday Production – I’ll never forget the year my niece (age 3?) got caught up in a production.
10. Make Jewelry – So many ways to be creative; Google it.
11. Play in the Snow – Remember when we were kids, and our moms used to bring us outside to play in the snow?
12. Donate gently used toys – Donate them to a local shelter.
13. Send holiday cheer to military members and veterans – Check with your local veterans center, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Visiting Angels Adopt-a-Vet programs and the American Legion.
14. Advent Calendar – A fun way to get a piece of chocolate daily and reflect on the meaning of the season.
15. Paper Snowflakes – Remember making these?
16. Bake Cookies or Other Holiday Treats – This is an annual tradition I keep up with in memory of my mom. My aunts (his sisters) come over every year to help decorate the sugar cut-outs.
17. Holiday Paper Games – My husband, brothers and stepson love board games ever.
18. Write a Letter to Santa – Help a young child practice her letter-writing skills. A lost art, I guess.
19. Visit a live birth – Check local churches for these solemn events.
20. Make Colorful Play Dough – Google this recipe.
22. Sit on Santa’s lap at the mall – You’re never too old to take photos with Santa.
23. Have a family slumber party under the tree – My brothers and I used to lie down under Christmas to appreciate the lighted surprises.
24. Throw a fancy dinner – for a small or large crowd.
25. Roast Marshmallows or Chestnuts – I’ve never tried roasted chestnuts, but I have had a lot of experience with marshmallows.
26. Give to United Way.
Giving helps reduce stress – remember to take a moment and give financially. Year-end giving is really a “thing”. Many nonprofits depend on financial incentives to provide essential services at the end of the year. (Not to mention that this is your last chance to donate for tax purposes in 2022.) Many nonprofit organizations depend on the United Way’s fundraising efforts, so this is a good time to consider giving through our there is time. We use volunteer leaders from the local community to make our funding decisions. Not only does funding stay local, but local people make our funding decisions. If not us, please give to a good, local non-profit organization.
We currently fund a total of 25 local agency programs in Monroe County. See our website (www.unitedwayMLC.org) for a list of those agencies. We appreciate your support to help fight poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, mental health and substance use disorders, domestic violence and other critical community needs.
Additional direct programs and services provided by our local United Way include the 2-1-1 Health and Human Services Hotline, Project Ramp, health screenings and the 21-Week Racial Equality Challenge.
