When your children turn into teens, the whole world changes. No longer is their favorite song Frosty the Snowman or their favorite holiday activity decorating the tree. Nowadays, they prefer listening to pop tunes on their iPhone and hanging out with their friends. Anything beats having to hang out with the parents during the holiday season.
Well, you can change all of that.
All you need to do is set up some holiday activities that your teen will love. C2 Education, your college prep service in Severna Park, offers holiday activities your teen will love.
Nostalgia Movie Night
There are plenty of movies that your teen still can’t watch too many times. Discover their favorite movies, pop plenty of popcorn and have a holiday movie night at your home. Go ahead, show them the classics and see what happens. We are willing to bet there are movies from the past that your teen will love.
Go On An Adventure
Take your teen on a nature walk. You can also take them out to where you can track down and saw down your own Christmas tree. Outdoor activities are healthy and even familiar places look different in the winter.
Have A Bake Off
Christmas is the best time of year to bake all of your favorite goodies. Your never too old to eat baked cookies and other goodies and your teen can help.
Pick an afternoon to crank up the oven and have a bake-off with your teen. It can be as simple as baking pre-made cookie dough you buy at the store or whip something amazing up from scratch.
Play Bad Santa
This is fun for the whole family. Set a monetary limit and have all of the family members go out and buy the worst possible gift. The one who chooses the best worst gift wins.
Video Game Tournament
Let your teen choose one of their favorite games and spend an evening in a tournament. Going head to head with your teen on a PlayStation or Xbox game is a great way to bond and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Serve Fondue For Dinner
Fondue is not only fun, but it is also a great conversation meal. Let your teen help you choose what fun recipes to try.
They will never admit it, but your teens never fell out of favor decorating the tree at Christmas. Give them some decorating responsibilities that will keep them entertained and busy. Don’t forget the hot chocolate and cookies.
A good way to clear some space in your teen’s closet for the clothes they will be getting over the holidays is by giving outgrown clothes to charity.
Go through the wardrobe with your teen to gather and donate clothes that no longer fit them or are otherwise never worn anymore. This is also a good time to talk about the importance of giving.
