Things to do around home these holidays
With the festive season in full swing, you've probably spent some substantial time and money celebrating with your loved ones this year. Nonetheless, not everything you do during the busy holiday season has to be costly, and there are some cheap and cheerful activities you can do around your house, whether you're hanging out with your family or planning a holiday with friends. Here's our collection of cheap and cheerful stuff you can do this holiday season around your house.
Have a pool party
If you're lucky enough to have a pool at home or in your apartment complex (seriously, lucky you!), for some friends and family, you might throw a pool party. The casual nature of pool parties renders them a cheap way for everybody to cool off with a swim for some social time. You might even have a barbeque and make your favourite summer salad for everyone.
Play Board Game Olympics
With the sun beating down outside, it might be too hot on a few days for backyard cricket or a run. Alternatively, with a board game Olympics party, it could bring out your competitive side. You can choose from some of your favourite board games (or encourage your friends to bring their favourite board game as well) and enjoy some fierce competition.
Enjoy a good book
While at times it gets busy, the holiday period is also a wonderful time to relax and refresh. Pick up one of those books in the stack that has been building up all year (we all have one of those piles) if you have some time spare. You could even arrange to read the same book with some of your friends and start a summer book club later to discuss the book.
Cook something new
Whether you've been waiting for the try to bake a recipe or a slow cooker meal for a Sunday dinner, try your hand from start to finish to make a recipe. Not only is cooking a great way to de-stress, but buying all the ingredients to cook a meal goes much further than having a meal in a restaurant.
Host a movie marathon
So after all the holiday celebrations you're ready for a day on the couch (and you're tired of the cricket!), why don't you and your buddies enjoy a movie marathon? There will be literally hundreds of movies and shows at your disposal with all the services like netflix available today. Bonus — get others to share their favourite film snacks
The holidays can be an exhausting and hectic time, but giving yourself the room to appreciate some low-key, low-cost activities around the home will give you the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends without spending a fortune.
