Maybe you're extra excited for Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever holiday you'll be celebrating next. Maybe you just love winter and everything that comes with it. If you can't wait to decorate, then right after Thanksgiving might be your best chance.
Think about it: you'll have a small army of people in your house without much to do. The least they could do is help you put up some holiday spirit.
Depending on how much cheer your family is already feeling, you might have to set the mood a little bit. Make some hot chocolate and holiday cookies. Sneak some winter hits onto your Thanksgiving playlist. When it comes time to break out the decorations, don't frame it as a chore. Frame it as a fun way to extend the fun and look forward to the next family celebration.
8. Create a living room theater
If your stomach is full and you want to take it easy, watching a movie might be your best bet. Tons of websites offer movie rentals cheap, including YouTube and Amazon. Of course, if you're really looking to stay on a budget, you can visit the Internet Archives, which has a bunch of classic movies available to watch at no cost.
The best part of watching a movie at home, however, is creating your very own theater. Use sheets and pillows to create a fort and then load it with blankets and snacks. Voila, you have a cozy theater where you can enjoy any snack, not just popcorn and soda.
9. Have a campfire in your backyard
With November comes chillier weather. Make the most of this weather by snuggling up in front of a campfire. Lay out some cozy seats and enjoy the crackling of the fire.
When you get hungry, get creative. Incorporate Thanksgiving leftovers into some fun campfire recipes, or, go with a classic campfire food, s'mores. While you're eating, make sure to look up and enjoy the stars. Make a game out of who can pick out the most constellations, even if it's just the big and little dipper.
10. Go on a scavenger hunt
What better way to bring out some family competition than a scavenger hunt. There are tons of ways to approach scavenger hunts with today's use of smartphones and the Internet.
You could have a digital scavenger hunt and see who can find the funniest meme or wisdom teeth removal video. Instead of scavenging for items, you can have people race to see who can take a picture with a dog or a local landmark first. Of course, there's always the more traditional type of scavenger hunt if you're feeling ready. Look at this great list of hunt items and make a list.
Once you've decided what type of hunt you want to do, the rest is easy. Separate into teams and set a time limit. Whoever finishes first with the most items wins and gets bragging rights until the next scavenger hunt next Thanksgiving.
