Fun Recreational Activities to Try For the Holidays

The holidays are a time to spend with your family and friends, so why not make the most of it? These fun recreational activities can help take your mind off things and give you something to do with those around you. So, whether you’re spending time at home or traveling to see family, here’s are some recommendations for the holiday season.


Mixology is the art of making cocktails and other mixed drinks. It’s a great hobby to have if you enjoy drinking alcohol, but even if you don’t drink at all, it can still be fun to learn how to make some delicious drinks. This can be a lot of fun when done with friends or family members, especially during the holiday season! For example, you can mix Baa Baa Thai tea or milk tea with some fresh fruits to make a delicious fruit cocktail. Baa Baa tea makes for a great base, as it’s a sweet and refreshing drink on its own.

You can also mix other types of alcohol with tea or milk for even more options. If you want to learn more about mixology, try watching some YouTube tutorials and reading up on the subject so that you can become an expert in no time at all!

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a great way to stay active and have fun with the whole family. When you ice skate, you get fresh air, exercise, and can enjoy some of the most beautiful views in the winter landscape around you. Also, ice skating can be done by anyone at any age! If you haven’t tried it yet, don’t hesitate! It’s an activity that everyone should give a shot at least once during their lifetime.

Indoor Rock Climbing

The holidays are a time for spending time with family, friends and loved ones. While you’re enjoying the company of others, you can also enjoy an active activity that you can do with them. Indoor rock climbing is an excellent way to get out and stay active during winter.

Indoor rock climbing gyms in most cities offer an easy way to get started in this exciting sport. You’ll find experienced guides who will ensure your climb is fun but safe while they teach the basics of climbing techniques such as belaying (using ropes), rappelling (lowering yourself down), and knot tying.

The strength training aspect of indoor climbing makes it especially beneficial for older adults or those with physical limitations due to injury or illness. It provides a great workout without requiring too much effort on their part, so they don’t have to worry about overdoing it while still getting plenty of exercise!


Geocaching is a GPS-based treasure-hunting game where people hide-and-seek containers with logs or trinkets worldwide. You might think it sounds like Pokemon Go, but there are a few essential differences. Geocaching is free, anyone can play it anywhere in the world (so long as you have permission), and there are no real winners or losers.

In fact, geocachers don’t even need to find a cache—they’re just happy finding them! Some of them only leave what they call “trackables,” little items that travel from cache to cache across geocachers’ adventures. These trackables are usually left in plastic tubes with small paper tags attached that explain how the item was found and how far it’s traveled so far (this way people can see if their own trackables have been touched).

You’ll also find other kinds of caches as well:

  • Letterboxes contain letters written by other geocachers.
  • Multi-caches contain multiple stages.
  • Mystery caches aren’t hidden at all.

You just have to figure out where they are! There’s really no limit on what kind of container you might find in your next adventure—a briefcase full of gold bars or an old film reel could be waiting for you right now!

There are tons of recipes that use only essential ingredients and don’t take very long! In fact, the holidays are a great time to give this recreational activity a try! Not only will they be impressed by your culinary skills, but they’ll also appreciate the time and effort you put into making their holiday special.
