The holidays are perfect for spending time with family and friends! Gather your loved ones together for one of these holiday activities to make fun memories. The Verde at Greenbelt Station Blog is highlighting a few activities that are perfect for this time of year. Read on to get a few ideas.

Build Gingerbread Houses

Bring everyone together to build and decorate gingerbread houses. Buy pre-made gingerbread house kits or choose to make your own gingerbread house from scratch. If you choose the scratch option, here is a recipe for a simple gingerbread house from BBC Good Food. Add in an element of friendly competition by making it a contest to see who can build the best gingerbread house.

Decorate the Tree

Gather everyone together to decorate your holiday tree, if you choose to have one. Have some festive music playing in the background as you are decorating to promote a holiday atmosphere. This is a great time to reminisce and share your favorite holiday memories with each other.

See the Lights

Pack everyone into the car for a drive around town to admire all the different light displays. Go to specific neighborhoods that you know tend to have incredible light displays.

Go Caroling

Spread the spirit of the holidays by getting people together to go caroling. You might just make someone’s day! An additional bonus is that people might give you cookies or some sort of treat as a thank-you gift.


Do some holiday baking together. Break out the flour, sugar, and other baking ingredients and have fun making a mess that results in some tasty treats! Share the fruits of your labor with your family, friends, and neighbors in your apartment community.
