Holiday Dorm Ideas

There’s no better way to bond with your dorm then through Holiday activities!

Recently, our dorm at Thacher has been having a few nights of consecutive “Holiday Fun.” So I thought it would be nice to share some ideas in which you too could kick of the upcoming season with your dorm!

1. Decorating a Tree

An amazing and fun activity that really brightens up the room and gets your whole dorm together, is decorating a tree. This is an activity that can be turned into a fun night of bonding. A very creative idea is to print out photos of your dorm and use construction paper and markers, to let everyone turn other people’s photos into personalized ornaments.


Here are the Ornaments that were made for us:

This activity can be played up by adding christmas music in the background, an endless supply of Hot Chocolate, Christmas cookies, and card decorating! There are so many ways to welcome this season, and there’s no better way to do it then with friends that have become family.


2. Baking

Something everyone loves… is delicious home baked goods. A fun way to release steam this season is by baking. There’s no better way to let go of your stress than through stuffing your face with cookies and cakes, and washing it down with Hot Chocolate. It’s also a nice time to be able to sit down with your friends who most likely know the exact situation you’re going through.

3. Snowflakes

So what do you think of when you think of Christmas and Winter? Well personally, I think of Snowflakes! An easy and simple activity to do with your dorm is Arts and Crafts. Making Snowflakes is something that will take 10 minutes, and will bring everyone back to their elementary days.


4. A Christmas Video

A Christmas video is a great bonding activity for your dorm! You could set it to a traditional Christmas song, or to any Holiday themed song by your favorite artist. It could be a sing a long, lip synced, or even just an E-card where you insert the face of your dorm and let JibJab take care of the rest!

5. Decorating

And of course there is the simplest form of bonding… decorating. Decorating your dorm is an activity that gets everyone into the Holiday spirit and in which everyone can lend a helping hand.
