Holiday Entertaining Ideas at the Lake

Looking to entertain at your cabin this weekend? Playing games, baking, sleeping, and eating are most people’s idea of a relaxing weekend spent with friends and family. Need some new ideas for games and goodies this year?

How about some neat game ideas? Two truths and a lie – holiday gifting style! In this game you have each person write down two of the worst holiday presents they’ve ever received along with one made up worst gift. This way you can get the dirt on who has received the worst of the worst! Or how about pin the red nose on Rudolph! It’s a fun way to get everyone involved in a simple manor. Have bored kids running around all over the place? Why not put together a scavenger hunt for them. (Make the list extra long!) It’ll be sure to keep them entertained for hours! For more fun holiday activities visit http://www.celebrations.com/holiday-party-games or share your fun traditions in our comments below!

Now on to baking but back to the crazy children you have at your cabin that say they have nothing to do and are BORED! Try this simple and time-consuming activity that will be sure to make a mess! Milk carton gingerbread houses!
All you need is:
-Single serving milk cartons, empty and washed
-White Icing
-Gram Cracker Squares
-Decorations such as candies, sprinkles or other holiday treats!

Or how about some delicious peanut butter cookies?
-1 cup of peanut butter
-1 cup of brown sugar
-1 egg
Chocolate chips are optional (or anything else you’d like to have in them, nuts etc) Mix them all together and place on an ungreased cookie sheet in small balls, smash with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 and let cool on rack

Need something fool proof? Get some round pretzels, Hershey’s Hugs, and some M&Ms. Preheat your oven 300. On a greased cookie sheet place the round pretzels with the Hugs in the middle. Let bake for three minutes or until melted enough to place the M&Ms in the middle. Then let them cool and enjoy!

These are a few of my fun holiday recipes - I hope you get a chance to try them this Holiday Season!
