HOW TO HAVE THE BEST WINTER BREAK EVER

HOW TO HAVE THE BEST WINTER BREAK EVER!

By: Rosie Vanunu

Are you sitting around with your head in your hands?  Wish you were back at school with your friends?  Here’s a list of possible activities that allow time for you to be by yourself, with your family, and your friends.

There are lots of activities you can do with your family.  Go out and do something spontaneous. Roller skate in Hermann Park.  Support the Rockets and Texans by going to a game.  Go on a shopping spree for gifts for your loved ones. Drink hot cocoa and have a snowball fight with rolled up socks. Organize a board game or video game tournament. Start a jigsaw puzzle and entice a family member to help you. Visit one of Houston’s museums. Look online and find a new recipe to make.  Plan a day trip for your family.  Make s’mores and sing your favorite campfire songs.

Sometimes you just need a little alone time.  Throw some blankets on and binge watch your favorites on Netflix.  Learn how to play an instrument you have been dying to play.  Give your room a makeover by rearranging your furniture. Get yourself hooked on a book series and try to read a book a day for a week. Exercise with a different YouTube video each day.  Make your house smell good by baking your favorite treat.  Decorate your bedroom door for the holidays. Make room for your gifts by cleaning out your closet.

Other times you get bored hanging out by yourself or with just family.  Plan a winter-themed party and invite your friends.  Bundle up in a jacket and go ice skating at the Galleria. Call a friend to join you for a day of volunteering.  Laugh often while creating memories with your friends.

Come back from Winter Break feeling relaxed and refreshed for 2018.
