10 Tween Holiday Activities with Friends

Dec 14, 2021 by Erin Yun
Pippa Park, a girl, is in her school uniform and is holding her right foot in her hand while wearing her backpack. To the right of her reads “Extra Holiday Fun!” in the same color as the decorative snowflakes surrounding the light pink graphic.

#1 Challenge your friends to a paper snowflake competition. Everyone takes a picture of their snowflake, and you get to decide which one looks the best! 
#2 Start a holiday book club! Pick a classic holiday story to welcome the season, like A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
#3 Use your phone for caroling by randomly calling up one of your friends and singing your favorite holiday tune. Tell them to pass it on! 
#4 Write a wintertime story with your friends. Have one person write the first chapter, another person write the second, and so on until you have a new holiday book to read each year.
        #5 Try out a new seasonal recipe. Sure, you can buy eggnog, but making it yourself adds that extra festive touch.
        #6 Turn a mason jar into a snow globe! All you need is a mason jar, glitter, and some clear glue to get started. It’s the perfect DIY gift, too!
#7 Take holiday-themed personality quizzes and share the results with your friends. For example, find out which holiday dessert you are!
#8 Give your favorite games a seasonal twist. Instead of playing Horse on the basketball court, switch it up to Santa.
#9 Set up a movie night and stream your favorite holiday movies with friends. 
#10 If you have a pet, dress them up in cheery costumes. A reindeer or elf works perfectly! Then have a quick holiday card photoshoot and send the card to friends and family members to enjoy.
