Get the entire family involved to help check off your to-do list and create a lifetime of memories along the way. Keep reading for ideas to maximize quality time with loved ones while getting those holiday household jobs out of the way.

Decorating Your Home

Start early! No one wants to be the last house on the block to have their decorations up. Dedicate a Saturday to holiday decorating; blast some holiday music and bust your holiday lights out of storage. Bask in the Florida sunshine while you string up holiday décor outside your hand-built home. Bring the spirit inside with small touches like decorative candles, table décor, and stockings. Decorating the house, inside and out, can be a fun-filled activity for the whole family. Promise hot chocolate and a holiday movie to conclude your family decorating day and it’s a win-win for everyone.

 

Kitchen Duty

The holidays can become chaotic, which is why it’s important to call for help. Whether you’re baking for a party, or for the family, make it a fun event and put all hands on deck in the kitchen. Parents can cook main dishes while kids get creative with cookies and desserts. Warm memories like these will be the ones your children look back on with a smile.

Wrapping It Up

The hard part is done. You’ve purchased gifts for friends and family but the time has come to delicately wrap everything up. Get the job done together and split up gifts amongst your crew, or assign everyone an assembly line job. Crank up the music and lay out some snacks to enjoy while working. Tackling wrapping as a team will get the job done quickly so you can sit back and enjoy your warm, welcoming home. Best of all, relax with joy knowing you and your family will cherish these memories for years to come in your hand-built home.
