As the holiday season draws nearer, you’re probably thinking of specific activities you’d like to do this year. There’s always so much we want to do, but often our schedules get crowded and we end up not being able to do all of the things we’d hoped to do.
To help you make the most of the holiday season, start by making a list of all of the things you’d like to do this year. Make an activities to-do list for the holidays! Here are some ideas:
- Seeing holiday performances
- Attending religious services
- Attending school concerts and programs
- Going to pumpkin patches, Christmas tree farms
- Decorating your home with your family
- Visiting special markets during the holidays
- Visiting Santa Claus or going to a Santa’s breakfast
- Doing a 5K – Turkey Trots, Jingle Bell Runs, Resolution Runs, etc.
- Doing a Cookie Exchange with friends
- Spending quiet time at home
After you make a list of all of the things you want to do, try to rank them by priority.
Odds are good that you won’t be able to do every single activity on your list, but by prioritizing them, you can make sure that you get to do the activities that are most important to you.
What’s on your holiday activities to-do list?
During October, Organizing Moms will feature 31 things you can do to prepare for the holidays. Preparing for the holidays can be a lot of fun, and it can help you get things done in advance so you can enjoy the holidays more.
However, if you do try to do all of the things in this series in real-time, you might drive yourself crazy. If you want to follow along and complete the tasks, that’s completely fine, but no pressure. This is supposed to be fun, and help you prepare. If you want to skip some things, skip them!
A better approach would be to read along with the series, and use the things that you think would be helpful to you. Bookmark the Preparing for the Holidays page so you can reference it later.
