Holiday Activities for Home
Happy Holidays! In all likelihood, this holiday season doesn't look anything like the many we've seen over the years. Even though it might look different, that doesn't mean you can't make this a special holiday season as well! Take a look below at the many activities you can occupy yourself with this holiday season, while being safe and demonstrating the holiday spirit! It may be later in the holiday season, but that doesn't mean any of the activities below are out of the question!
  • Send out personalized holiday cards! You can do physical or ECards and it will let your loved ones know you're thinking of them. Find ECards here.
  • Write down everything that you're thankful for and if any of them are people, let them know.
  • Create a list of your goals for 2021 and how you intend on achieving them.
  • Connect with your loved ones through Zoom and have a virtual Holiday get-together. Make the Zoom call even more fun with Ugly Sweaters, or by making Gingerbread Houses together.
  • Make a full holiday meal and divide it up into Tupperware to share with loved ones!
  • Prepare a morning meal for the holiday, have it prepped to go right into the oven for a nice treat on the holiday.

  • Put your craftiness to the test by making holiday crafts to gift or hang up around the house!
  • Before they're taken down, check out the local holiday light displays. You can find a guide to Light Up Whitemarsh (and other activities) by clicking here.
No matter what you do for the holiday, enjoy the day and the time of year!
