Winter Break is here which means you’re going to have absolutely no work to do for about a month.
In that time there is a lot of fun to be had. With all of this free time you may be totally unsure of what to do. Here are a few fun things you can do while you have all the time you could want!
1. Go Ice Skating
Everyone loves this classic winter activity and it’s even more fun if your friends are very uncoordinated! Everyone loves skating around in their best winter gear surrounded by lights and Christmas music.
2. Go See a Musical
There are plays or musicals always playing at local theaters around the holidays. Make the most of it and go with your friends or make a plan with your family! The shows are bound to get you in the holiday spirit.
3. Go to a Light Show
The best part of getting off your college campus and back home means you can drive through all of the neighborhoods full of festive lights. There are also drive-through light shows that are always entertaining.
4. Host an Ugly Sweater Party
Let’s face it, it’s not the holidays unless there is an ugly sweater party. If no one around you is hosting it then just host it yourself! Get the eggnog and hot chocolate ready!
5. Build a Snowman
If you get snow over winter break that’s a sign that you need to make a snowman. They do it in Frozen and that snowman ended up being the best character! Plus nothing is cuter than a snowman in your yard smiling at you.
6. Make a Gingerbread House
Now that we’ve gotten older building a gingerbread house may seem too childish. However now that you’re older you can make a truly amazing gingerbread house because your arts and crafts skills have improved (maybe).
7. Have a Big Slumber Party
One of the best parts about being home is getting to hangout with all your old friends. What better way to catch up than a good old fashioned sleepover! Pop in Mean Girls, get some of your favorite snacks, and get ready for some long awaited gossip.
8. Have a Holiday Movie Marathon
Take a break from your normal Netflix routine and get into the holiday spirit! Everyone loves holiday movies and you can have this marathon by yourself or with a group. Just don’t forget to have some fun holiday snacks while you do it.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and you’re free from all the stress that finals brought you. Kick back and relax this winter break and enjoy your time off.
