Bored During The Festive Season? Try Out These Activities

If you’re feeling bored during the festive season, don’t worry – there are plenty of fun activities you can try out. From playing board games to going for a walk in the park, here are some ideas to help keep you entertained. So why not get started and see how many you can tick off your list?

Scavenger Hunt

The classic group activity, you are never too old or too young for this one. Get a group together and split up into smaller groups, then get them to find specific items that you list out on pieces of paper. This could be anything from birds in the local park to different types of foods around town. Then, either come together at the end with what you have found or see who can find the most themselves.


Nothing is more classic than you and your friends going to the bowling alley for a casual night you won’t forget anytime soon. It’s fun, and it’s cheap. If you have kids, take them along too. They’ll love running around while you try to get strikes or spares.

Go to Karaoke

When you work hard at your 9-5, sometimes you need to unwind with some good old-fashioned singing – badly. This one is usually done in smaller groups, but it could be done with lots of people if you wanted to rent out a room somewhere that has karaoke. So you pick the songs you want, and you sing your heart out.

Go to a Show

Everyone wants to see the newest movies when they come out, but you should also consider going along to watch some live shows. It’s excellent for you to get out of the house and enjoy yourself by watching something you might never have the opportunity to see; otherwise, be sure you’re not late because you probably won’t be able to get good seats.


Everyone loves a drink or two, right? Some people love it too much, though, but that might not happen if you are with friends who know how much you can handle.

Go to a Sports Game

Sports games are a great way to spend some time with your friends, you may even learn something new about a sport you didn’t know anything about before. Just make sure you don’t participate in any booing or cheering, as that can often lead to trouble.

Attend a Festival

Festivals are always fun for you and your friends or family as you can get involved with all of the activities on offer without having to worry too much about anyone getting out of hand. There is usually lots going on, from music and dancing all day long, carnival rides and food stalls so that you won’t go hungry throughout the day. It’s one event you should attend at least once in your life. You may also want to use apps to locate family members if one of your friends or relatives gets lost in the festival.

 Walk Your Dog

If you have a dog, you should take advantage of this time of year and go walking your dog through the local park or around your neighborhood. It’s a great way to get some exercise in, and you can also meet other people walking their dogs. If you don’t have a dog, ask your neighbors if they mind using theirs.

Go to a Wine and Cheese Party

Some of you might be wondering what exactly you would do at one of these, but they are great for you and your friends to relax and enjoy some delicious snacks while you chat about the week’s events. All you need to bring is yourself and something tasty that you want to share with everyone else.


It’s something you don’t think you do very often, but you should always look up to the stars and appreciate their beauty. Take your friends with you on a quiet night where you can lie on a blanket and stare into space. You’ll never want to go back inside again, that’s for sure.

Attend a Concert

Who doesn’t love listening to some good music from some talented artists? Getting front-row seats is impressive, but you can catch just as much of the music from the further back too. Just make sure you only go during the day because you don’t want to miss out on your beauty sleep.

Go Ice-Skating

Skating is a ton of fun during winter, and you should give it a try at least once in your life if you haven’t already. Most local rinks will have skating lessons for you to take part in so anyone can learn how to use those skates properly; you’ll be an expert before you know it.

Watch a Play

Plays are great ways for you to spend some time having fun with your friends while also learning something new about other people’s lives or even about animals who you don’t see often. Playwrights are constantly putting on shows everywhere you go, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one you’d like to watch.


The festive season is in full swing, with winter coming. There are many ways to have fun during this time of year, from scavenger hunting with friends and family to visiting orphanages or participating in costume parties. You can also find new hotels near you for an upcoming trip or go on a spontaneous road trip. So what’s your favorite way to spend the holidays?
