Fun Christmas Activities You Can Do In Your Garage

December 22, 2021

The winter breeze signals the start of the holiday season. We begin to exchange the orange hues for festive reds and greens. We fill our mugs with hot chocolates as we sit by the window sill and watch the snow cover everything on the horizon. Ah, and we ponder, the most favorite season of the year has finally come. Christmas brings the much-needed serotonin boost to close out the year, however painful, stressful it has been. The merry-making and the festive mood are best shared with the family. Here are fun ways to kick-off and celebrate the Yuletide season.
First Off: Decorations
Christmas without decorations is just like a normal winter day. The holidays begin when the decorations are finally hung at home. There are Christmas lights strung everywhere, the freshly picked Pine tree that centers the room with its domineering stature and invigorating aroma, the Christmas socks filled with candy canes and sweet treats, and the miniature snowmen, Santa Claus and reindeer that adorn every nook and cranny. These decorations spark the joy and magic of the holiday season. And what’s even better is the process of decorating the homes is spent with the family. You may shop for new decorations with a theme in mind. Bring your family with you. Shopping can be chaotic this season, but it is twice the fun when the experience is shared with your loved ones. However, if you have decorations neatly kept inside the garage, then it is time to dust them off and bring them to life. We just hope that the unpacking is not as disastrous as it has been for most. The secret lies in the proper packing and storing of these precious decorations. A foolproof that works wonders for us every time is by utilizing an overhead storage system. Not only do we save much-needed space in the garage, but we also get to spend less or nothing at all by recycling what we already have at home. Do you want to know our best secret to maintain the pristine condition of our Christmas decorations? It is the Fleximounts Lift 4’ x 4’ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B. This storage lift removes the need for a ladder or any heavy lifting, protecting you from potential accidents. It can be raised and lowered by a crank or power drill for a smooth and effortless operation. And it eases access to your items that are high above the garage floor without using a ladder. It can lift a maximum of 108 inches vertically and can carry a maximum weight of 300 lbs. The storage lift has a safe and secure mechanism–a specially designed safety lock prevents any movement when not in use. Use the winding pole to pull out the safety lock on the gearbox, then push back in to lock after use. Moreover, the rack is made of heavy-duty steel cables, which secure the rack in place. The GL44B also boasts flexibility when it comes to compatibility with angled ceilings because of its adjustable length steel cable. Additionally, it is universally compatible with different ceiling joists of both wood joists and concrete ceilings–12”, 16”, and 24” ceiling joist spacing. However, it is not fit for metal joists. Aside from its storage capacities, the Lift 4′ X 4′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B is designed for multiple uses such as lifting hardtop, car top carrier, kayak with straps, and many more.
Take the Annual Christmas Family Photoshoot
What better way to commemorate the Yuletide season this year than by snapping a family photo. Get creative. Set a theme and matching outfits for the family. Experiment with the backdrop design and props. Decorate the garage as your photo studio to lessen the expenses when renting a photo studio in commercial spaces. You can do a lot of things with your family photo. You can give it as a Christmas card to family friends, set it as virtual backgrounds for video calls and virtual parties, print and frame to display on your walls, or even send them out on Facebook and other social media messaging apps as Christmas greetings.
Host Christmas Gatherings or Parties
If you and your family are ok with hosting in-person parties, give it a go. Ever since the pandemic started, we have been deprived of human interactions and social gatherings. Well, it is rightly so to minimize the spread of the virus. However, if the guests are clearly healthy, and fully vaccinated, then get started with the holiday cheers in your garage. There are tons of activities that you can enjoy. One, you can plan your own paint and sip activity at home. You can prepare an empty canvas, paints, brush sets, and other coloring materials. If art isn’t in your blood yet, you may opt to purchase paint by numbers set, wherein there is already a predetermined image that is numbered per color, and all you have to do is fill the numbers with the corresponding paint color. As for the drinks, you may prepare hot chocolate for the little ones, and red wine for the young at heart. Another fun activity to enjoy is rounding up your family and friends for a competitive game night. Here are some of the tried and tested games that even the kids will truly like: Christmas Charades Family Feud Christmas Blindfold Christmas Drawing Pin the Nose on Rudolph Find Santa’s Friends If the party is exclusively for adults (now that the kids are off to sleep), then spice up your games that will get their heart racing or sweat dripping.
