It’s almost Christmas! There are only a few days left, and lucky for many of us, they are weekend days! So why don’t you plan something fun and memorable – don’t worry if you haven’t done anything yet, there’s still PLENTY of time! Here are a few fun, frugal and festive ideas for you:
- Go look at Christmas lights. Make or buy some hot chocolate to take along. Bonus points if you head out in your pajamas! Stick a Christmas CD in your car and have some fun!
- Movie night. Grab lots of blankets, pop some popcorn, turn on the Christmas Tree lights and enjoy a fun holiday movie. Bonus points for this one if you camp out all night by the tree. Cinnamon rolls in the morning are perfect!
- Crash Dinner. This is a ton of fun – your kids will get a kick out of it. A crash dinner is essentially exactly what it sounds like. You pick up (or make dinner) and then take it over to a friend’s house to eat together. You should probably give them a little heads up, so they will be there. The kids always love this one – especially if you can stick around and play games after!
- Christmas Crafts. I bet you have a Grandma or close friend who would love something homemade for Christmas. Why not spend a few hours making crafts. Here is one simple idea, and you can ALWAYS check out Pinterest for dozens more!
