What to do with your family this Christmas

4th December 2018


We know the life of a Contractor is busy and, at times, stressful, but now your contract is up, it’s time to spend some much-needed quality time with your loved ones. To help out, we’ve compiled a list of fun Christmas activities that you can do together.


Visit Winter Wonderland

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so take your family to the most wonderful place in the UK. Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park has over 14 million visitors a year and is one of the most popular Christmas places to visit. From ice skating to live music and a German market, there are endless things to do and, best of all, admission is free.


Make some treats for Santa

It may lead to a mess in the kitchen, but you can never say no to a good Christmas cookie. Best of all you could have freshly baked cookies in 20 minutes with this simple recipe. Get the kids involved by having them measure out the ingredients, stir the bowl and decorate! You might be tempted to eat them all but don’t forget to leave one for Santa.


Buddy the Elf, Grinch and Arthur Christmas

There’s no better way to avoid the cold than by curling up on the sofa and watching a Christmas movie. There are many classics to choose from but you could let each family member take turns to choose a favourite for every movie night you have planned. Some cinemas also have showings of old Christmas movies, so check what’s happening with your local pictures.


Recycle old decorations

Turn old Christmas decorations into new ones. If you have a box of baubles that are outdated or you no longer use, recycle them by painting and personalising them. You can also use bits of tinsel and foliage to make Christmas wreaths.


Ice skating

Wrap up warm and get your skates on. You can find Ice skating rinks near you here. It’s a fun day out with the whole family and, you can top it off with a cup of hot chocolate at the end!


The list of Christmas activities you can do is endless. See what events are happening around your area here and enjoy your family time. We’re going to do the same!
