Holidaying from home
Holidays are one of life’s best pleasures, but sometimes your mini-getaway is not an option – like now, for many of us! Whether it’s because you’re travel ideas have been curtailed by lockdowns, it’s not in the budget this year, you don’t have enough time off, or you just feel safest staying local, you can have all the fun with way less hassle by trying one of these staycation ideas.
Have a pillow fort sleepover
Don’t just build a pillow fort; build the best pillow fort ever! Go all out, draping sheets over furniture and building an indoor adventure. Hang fairy lights. Bring in a TV. Whip together recipes for a picnic. Break out the classic board games. The dress code is strict: Jammies only! Then when it’s bedtime, you have the perfect setup for a sleepover.
Have a fondue night
Eating a fondue meal is a unique culinary experience, and it’s one you can bring to your home. Heat up a fondue pot (or two!) and lay out a spread of dippables. Start with savoury dishes like meat cubes, bread and steamed vegetables dipped in melted cheese. Then finish with dessert, dipping fruit, cake and marshmallows into melted white and dark chocolate.
