Put on a Show in the Flex Room, Loft, or Basement 

Your home provides the perfect backdrop for holiday activities for the kids. If your little ones have a penchant for performing or an aptitude for art, create a space to showcase their creativity to friends or family at holiday gatherings. A basement, loft, or flex room provides the perfect nook for kids to stage a play, host karaoke, or display their talents. 

Another way to show off their artistic abilities is to transform your home’s hallways into their own art gallery. Mount their winter-themed crafts with removable putty so you can easily take them down or swap out their beautiful masterpieces throughout the seasons.

Warm Up Outdoor Living Spaces 

Gathering in a beautifully appointed outdoor living area can feel just as cozy as being indoors, setting the perfect winter mood for any activity you choose. 

Even in colder climates, the outdoors can be inviting if you plan ahead. Put together a holiday hot cocoa bar. Start with an insulated pitcher of cocoa and add all the fixings, such as mini marshmallows, sprinkles, peppermint sticks, and whipped cream. Nestle in around the firepit with homemade s’mores and a cozy throw around your shoulders.
