Ready for Some Virtual Holiday Fun?
The holidays in 2020 look a little different, but love isn’t canceled regardless of the circumstances. Technology has made it possible for us to still get together with our family and friends, even while being physically distanced.
When it comes to virtual meetings, you can get really creative and have a great time with your loved ones. Here are some ideas for some virtual holiday fun!
Holiday Cookie Bake-Off
Take your holiday cookie baking tradition to a virtual setting. Join an online meeting, crank up the holiday music, bake a batch of your favorite cookies, and have everyone else do the same. You can share your creations once they’re done and have other family members vote for their favorite cookie. Mailing your cookies to each other could also be a great idea to make the activity feel even more personal.
Gingerbread House Decorating
Decorating gingerbread houses is such a fun family activity and can easily be done in a virtual format. Bake your cookies ahead of time and bring them ready for decorating during the meeting. Have your icing ready in piping bags or bowls and layout all your favorite sprinkles. You could have a time cap for the activity if you want to pump up the adrenaline or take as long as you want to put together and decorate your gingerbread house. Have everyone take photos of their masterpieces and share them over chat. The photos will make for a beautiful and unique memory.
Christmas Brunch and Gift Opening
Watching everyone opening their gifts on Christmas day is one of the best parts of the holiday season. This year you don’t have to miss out on that. Schedule a virtual brunch meeting with your loved ones so you can still have that treasured family moment but with a little twist. Take turns to open your gifts and then bring your computer or phone to the table and share a meal.
Use technology to stay connected with your loved ones throughout the holidays. Love is stronger than distance.
