Festive Family faves
Bring out the games. Leave Monopoly and other slow-movers in the cupboard and opt for quick-fire play that will entertain every age group. Dobble, Jungle Speed and Uno are bound to be winners.
Head outside. If Christmas with the family is getting too claustrophobic, wrap up warm and go for a walk. The fresh air will soon help to blow away the cobwebs.
Get crafty. Keep little fingers busy with easy festive makes that won’t need too much supervision. Try painted pine cones, handwritten menus for Christmas lunch, or popcorn and cranberry garlands.
Go carolling. Singing is a proven stress reliever, so head to a carol service to revive your Christmas spirit.
