On the 12th Day of Holiday Fun…

Christmas and Holiday time is a great time to create your own instruments! With all the boxes, paper tubes, bells, and shiny ribbon around it’s easy to be creative and make music.

Create a Didgeridoo from paper tubes, or add some beans and toothpicks inside for a rain stick. Use boxes (especially shoe boxes) and rubber bands to make guitars. Tambourines can be made from paper plates and bells. Get creative and show us what you made – even better would be a video of your musical performance!

Each day from December 12 – 24, Yarmouth Recreation will share an activity through our website, Facebook pageInstagramTwitter, and Pinterest.  Join in on your favorite channel.  For every comment about the activity, we will put your name in a draw for a family fun prize pack valued at $100. If you share/tag us in an image of you and your family doing an activity, you will get 5 prize entries that day! Enter as often as you wish and for as many days as you can! Contest closes December 31st at midnight.

On the 11th Day of Holiday Fun…

Get piping with pipe cleaners!

Pipe Cleaner crafts are great for many ages and you can create so much with them! This time of year, they make beautiful decorations and I can admit to making one or two as a special gift for my cat. 🙂

What is your favorite use for pipe cleaners? Share your creations to win!

On the 10th Day of Holiday Fun…

Be a leaping lord, lady or llama! 

One of the favorite games among our day campers is Jump The River where players take turns attempting to scale an ever widening “river” (two other players hold a line and move it away from the jump line).

Another favorite childhood game during stormy weather or early mornings was to take all the cushions off the couch and chairs (and you KNOW at this time of year there are lots of extra decorative pillows!) and make islands all over the floor and jump from one to another while avoiding sharks, lava, and other deadly imaginings.

On the 9th Day of Holiday Fun..

Join the nine ladies dancing!

Whether you are a dancer already performing on the stage, or just someone who loves to move to music, break out the moves! Dancing helps ease depression and anxiety, improves balance and is good for your heart.

Want to impress your friends and family with some new moves or just want something fun to do while hanging out with friends? YouTube has tons of different instructional videos to get you dancing like a pro.

Check out this one especially for the holidays and tag us in a video of your own!
