Christmas Activity Ideas For People That Live Together

Published on: 14/12/20


Whatever you’ve got planned for the Christmas break, Coronavirus restrictions guarantee that it’s going to look a lot different from the usual festivities. But whether you’re celebrating Christmas just with your own household, or you’ve created a support bubble that allows you to meet up with selected others indoors, we have lots of fun activity ideas to keep you smiling!


virtual visit with Santa

Book a virtual visit with Santa

Due to the social distancing restrictions of Coronavirus, there are now lots of companies offering virtual meet-n-greets with the big man himself. You can book a time slot for your kids to have a live video conversation with Santa from the comfort and safety of your own home. No more waiting in long lines for a 30 second interaction! Many of the companies include a keepsake video of the visit as part of the package, which is something you don’t get with a shopping centre Santa.

Host a Christmas cocktail competition

Goodness knows we could all do with a drink after the year we’ve had! Why not get your family together for a Come Dine With Me style cocktail competition – each participant creates the Christmas cocktail of their choice which are judged and graded by the others. From warming mulled wine to homemade eggnog, there’s a host of recipes for traditional favorites available online. Or why not take the competition to another level and have people invent their own creations! The winner gets excused from washing up duties.

Get in the Christmas spirit with some silly games

Some of the best Christmas games are ones that you can make up yourself – for instance, how about a scavenger hunt to get people off the sofa for a while? Or put on some happy Christmas tunes, have everyone dance about then stop the track and shout ‘freeze’! Everyone has to freeze in whatever silly dance position they were caught in, and the first person to move is out.

If you want to make the present opening part of the day last longer, get people to try and open their gifts while wearing oven mitts! It’s almost impossible and very funny to watch. Lastly, make your own Reindeer Toss game by hunting out some V-shaped twigs to create the antlers, then fashioning a set of rings out of pipe cleaners (or cut some out of cardboard). The aim of the game is to get as many hoops over Rudolph’s antlers as possible.

Have a Christmas movie marathon

What better time to get cozy and settle in for a Christmas movie marathon? Have everyone in your family or bubble pick 2 of their favourite Christmas movies, then put all the options in a hat and pick out 3 to watch. Then have the inevitable debate about whether Die Hard is in fact a Christmas movie! Recreate the cinema experience by making your own popcorn (so much cheaper and tastier), turning the lights off and putting all your seats in a row. If you’re watching with adults, you could make up a fun drinking game: take a glug for every mention of presents or for every time you see a Christmas tree on the screen!
