Christmas is a time to be with family and friends. It's also an opportunity to enjoy nature outdoors, so why not make it an active holiday?
You can do lots of fun activities in your caravans on Christmas Day, whether with your family or by yourself. Here are 10 ideas for Christmas caravan trips filled with adventure.
1. Christmas Caravan Caroling
Christmas carolling is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. This is an excellent option if you want something fun and different. You can find groups of people singing Christmas carols in your area or even at local parks and outdoor spaces. You'll be amazed how many people are willing to join in on this activity!
It's also suitable for young children who want to learn about the words of each song and then perform them with their parents down the road. Plus, if any adults happen upon this activity while shopping or visiting friends around town, there's no doubt everyone will enjoy themselves immensely!
2. Christmas Caravan Lights Competition
The Christmas lights competition is a fun way to put your caravan in the spotlight.
The rules are simple:
- Put up Christmas lights in your caravan.
- Be ready to show off your holiday decor when we come around
- And most importantly, don't forget that this is all just for fun!
We'll be visiting each competitor's caravan regularly throughout the day (we'll announce when we're coming), so make sure you're good and ready with some festive cheer before then!
3. Christmas Caravan Play/Musical
If you have children old enough to understand what's happening and want to get involved, why not put on a play or musical? This is the perfect time of year for choosing one your family can enjoy.
For example, if you're looking for something suitable for children aged up to 7 years old (or even younger), try creating an interactive story where they can act out parts of the story themselves!
Or perhaps you'd offer an evening of love songs featuring your favourite artists. It could be great fun if everyone brought their instruments or singing voices. You could even organise an afternoon tea in your caravan with friends & family, so everyone gets stuck together.
4. Watch a Christmas Movie Together
Christmas movies are the best. The best Christmas movie is "A Christmas Story" with Robert DeNiro and Jean Stapleton. You should watch it at least three times (with your family) before December 25th, but more if you can afford it.
Another good option is "Scrooged," with Bill Murray as an uptight corporation man who must deal with ghosts from his past life when he starts believing in the Christmas spirit again. This film has become very popular over time and will be around for years to come!
5. Decorate the Area Around Your Christmas Caravan
If you're hosting a caravan holiday, then it's likely that your caravans will be the focal point of your holiday celebrations. However, if they are not decorated with Christmas decorations, people may feel like they aren't part of the party!
So get creative and add some festive flair to them before everyone arrives at your place. You could hang up lights around the sides or even put tinsel on top of the roof so that it looks like something out of a movie set. You could add glitz around the door handles and windows to look like little presents when people open them.
6. Outdoor Activities Such As Biking
Biking is a great way to get around, keep fit and have fun. It's also an excellent way to explore the area around your caravan.
If you're considering cycling as a hobby, there are plenty of reasons why you should. Cycling is a great way to keep fit and healthy while also exploring the local area around your caravan.
If you are looking into biking, you might want to consider a foldable electric bike. The eelo 1885 EXPLORER folding ebike is ideal for the train commuter, caravanner, motorhome owner, or boating enthusiast. Take the hard work out of cycling and avoid the sweat with electric biking.
7. Board Games
Board games are a great way to spend time with family. They can help you get to know each other better, increase your communication skills and strengthen your bonds.
Board games also allow you to bond with your family differently than most people during the day. Playing board games is an excellent opportunity for everyone involved.
Children can learn how to play cooperatively and work together towards common goals. Parents will get their exercise in while learning something new. Grandparents may even find themselves playing alongside the kids.
Competitions are one of the best ways to bring your family together. There are so many competitions you can do, and they can all be as simple or complicated as you want them to be.
You could have a competition about who can make the best s'mores, who can tell the best campfire story, or even who has been singing carols better than anyone else! Whatever your idea may be—it's going to be fun!
Baking is an easy and fun activity to do with your caravanning friends. You can make cakes, bread and even cookies with minimal effort. If you are new to baking, it's best to start with something simple like a cake or muffin mix. These recipes are suitable for beginners as they don't require any special skills or equipment, but they also don't take very long (usually only 20 minutes).
The beauty of baking from scratch is that there's no limit to how much food can be made at once. If there are more people in your travelling group than available ovens, ensure everyone has their oven ready so they can bake their treats!
10. Campfire Stories and S'mores!
Campfire stories are something that every family should have in their repertoire. They're a great way to connect with your loved ones and keep the spirit of Christmas alive throughout the year.
If you've never tried making s'mores before, now's the time! You can make them with marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers, or even plain old graham crackers—whatever your preferences may be! The important thing is that everyone gets involved in making this yummy treat.
