Safe Gathering Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season
As 2020 keeps trekking along, many have been searching for ways to keep the holiday spirit and fun alive, safely. Figuring out ways to make this possible can be a difficult task. We have created a short list of safe gathering ideas for this holiday season!
Host a Game Night via Zoom
Zoom meetings seem to be the way of life now-a-days. Why not host a game night via zoom? Here are a few games to play:
- Jackbox Party Games. Jackbox is a virtual pack of games which you are able to purchase on most smart devices, gaming consoles, and computer systems. To play this game, users will use their smart devices to log into a website. From there, they are able to participate in a variety of games competing or working together with their friends and family.
- Charades. Pick a topic and act it out! Charades is a great family game, and pretty easy to play on a zoom video call. Check out this Charades word generator!
- Pictionary. Similar to Charades, there are many Pictionary word generators out there!
Plan a Winter Games Day Outdoors
Staying outdoors is a perfect way to enjoy a gathering, but still social distance. Once the first snow falls, it will be a great time to plan a family snowball fight, sledding, or a snowman building competition. This year is all about thinking outside of the box when it comes to thinking about gathering ideas!
Social Distance in a Screen Room with Open Air
Screen rooms are very functional additions to any home. They are usable throughout most seasons, and there are ways to add comfort to a screen room in the winter. Because of the free flowing air, it is a great option to safely host a few friends/family members in this area.
Note: it is important to follow the CDC recommendations to ensure safety.
Craft Homemade Ornaments
Make decorating your tree even more special this year! Crafting homemade ornaments is a way to make lasting memories. Every year you will be able to look back on the memories, while decorating your tree. This gathering idea for 2020 can be made into a wonderful family tradition!
