  • Making some hot cocoa and relaxing on the couch is perfect for staying warm inside.

  • Playing some card games with your family is a great way to kill boredom over the break.

  • Go to the store and buy some pre-packaged dough or make it from scratch. Baking cookies is a fun activity and brings spirits up.

  • Winter break is the perfect time to catch up with your family. Take some time to play some board games or cook with your family.

  • There are many Christmas and holiday movies for everyone on Netflix. Grab a blanket and some snacks and binge-watch movies all day.

  • Finding a good book series will entertain you for hours and also allow you to keep your mind active over the break.

  • To avoid cabin fever while also staying safe and socially distanced, going for a hike is great for getting out of the house.

  • With football and college basketball going on, you can keep up with your favorite team and watch their games over break.
