November Family Fun Activities

As Halloween ends and you put away your spooky costumes, November is the beginning of the holiday season. However, you might feel unsure of what to do with the kids and with idle time as you continue to adjust to current events. While major theme parks and attractions you may usually frequent are closed, there are fun activities you can still do to bond with your family.

Many school-aged kids are all online learning, which can make everyone in the home a little restless after a while. Here are some fun activities you can do to get the family involved while also making the most of the holidays.

Safe Family Fun Activities

  1. Thanksgiving Preparations: You don’t have to carry the burden of cooking a Thanksgiving feast for everyone. Even if you’re keeping this year’s turkey-day to immediate family and opting not to travel to a big get-together, cooking even for a handful of people can be overwhelming. Give your kids a break from computer screens and online learning and teach them hands-on “home economics.” By introducing your kids to learning how to cook, you’re teaching them valuable life skills and simultaneously building holiday memories. If you have little ones, consider planning fun craft-like games or getting them holiday coloring books to keep them occupied during Thanksgiving dinner.
  2. Start A Family Tradition: You might already have a family tradition, but it’s great to think of ways to build lasting memories as the season approaches. If you’ve included the kids and hubby in cooking a Thanksgiving meal, that’s one way. You can also start by doing fun things like wearing matching PJs, baking cookies, making each family member a hand-made ornament, and look at neighborhood lights together.
  3. Seasonal Decorations: November is that special time when you take out the tree and holiday decorations. Make the most out of DIY crafts you can create with your whole family. Get your children and husband involved in learning holiday DIY craft ideas via online videos. Remember, don’t try to do it all yourself. Share in the chores and designate each member of the family a fun task. You can also keep on a budget and get affordable ornamentation at the Dollar Store. Light up the home with holiday décor and get the whole family in the spirit of the season.
  4. Black Friday Holiday Shopping: Did you know that shopping can be therapeutic and a way to relieve stress? Well, Black Friday is one of the best times to shop because of the deals, sales, and promotions. Encourage your whole family to write a list of things they want on their holiday wish-list. Get a head start by comparing deals and sales online. In fact, you can do most of your shopping from the comfort and safety of your home. Don’t forget to pay attention to free shipping as a purchase incentive.
  5. Holiday Movie Night: Get those holiday movies ready! Another way to make a memorable family tradition and spend quality time is to watch some of the best holiday classics. Movie night is always great right after finishing a big holiday feast.
