Bored of roasting chestnuts on an open fire? Tired of watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for the 50th time? Fret not holiday cheer-misters, fun is on the way! Here are some great Sci-Fi and Horror themed activities that will flip that holiday frown upside down!
Board Games – ‘Star Trek: Fleet Captains’: This board game based on the hit TV and movie series ‘Star Trek’ (let’s face it, if the title didn’t ring a bell, you clearly shouldn’t be looking on this site). Embark on a perilous journey as captain of a fleet or the USS Enterprise as players face fun and challenging sequences that are actually based on plot lines from the show! Can be played with up to 4 people – dibs on Mr. Spock!
Snowman Building Contest: Horror/Sci-Fi Edition: Thought to be known as a wholesome activity for all ages, our take might make you change your mind. In this version, go nuts and build your very own snowman zombie apocalypse or your favorite scene from Star Wars. Have some whimsical fun with this awesome activity! Winner gets a cherry snow cone…or is that blood?!
Make your own Ornaments: Who doesn’t love to decorate ornaments this time of year? Give your Christmas tree or Hanukkah Bush some added flair this year by making your very own homemade decorations! Also great to give to your loved ones as gifts, you can’t go wrong!
Did Someone say MARATHON!?: Nothing says ‘I have time off, don’t bother me’ like a festive TV marathon!
