Indoor Activities for You and Your Guests

craft supplies including scissors, cut out paper scraps, etc
Welcome back to the Lake Arbor Towers Blog! Seeing that Thanksgiving is almost here, we thought it would be a great idea to share a few indoor activities with residents of our Mitchellville, MD apartment community. Pick up a card game, get crafty, or play with pumpkins with the ideas in today’s blog post.

Pick Up a Card Game

If you’d like to go the card game route (the week of Thanksgiving celebrates National Game & Puzzle Week, by the way), then we recommend playing one of the highest-earning games ever launched on Kickstarter: Exploding Kittens. This is a hilarious version of Russian Roulette. Take turns drawing cards, but be careful! If you draw an exploding kitten, you lose!

Get Crafty

Crafts are fun and can keep people busy for hours. Out of all the crafts we looked at, this Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder is one of our favorites! You’ll need the following items: Mason jars, Mod Podge, autumn faux leaves, sponge brush, and tealight candles. Clean the outside of the jar with rubbing alcohol. Bend the leaves a little to gain a better stick. Then, dip your brush in the Mod Podge and paint a thin layer on a section of the jar. Take a leaf and press the middle of it against the painted surface. You can use your fingers to smooth out the leaf to help it stick better. Add more Mod Podge and repeat until the jar is covered how you want it. After the Mod Podge is dry, place the tealight inside.

Play with Pumpkins

Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe is a great indoor activity that is quick and easy to set up. This project catches the eye and will entertain kids and guests for a while. Have a bunch of mini pumpkins you don’t know what to do with? Turn your table into a pumpkin checkerboard.

What are your favorite indoor activities to do this time of year? Share them in the comments below. Thanks for reading. Happy Thanksgiving!
