During the holidays it's easy to get swooped up into the stress and busyness that comes with being an adult. it always seems like it was much more enjoyable as a kid when you didn't have to do anything but show up, open presents and eat. Here are some ways to still pretend to be a child during the holidays.

1. Build a Fort

Get some blankets and pillows and build a cozy fort. Throw up some extra Christmas lights to add to the festivity.

2. Watch Your Favorite Holiday Movie

The Grinch, Nightmare Before Christmas, Rudolph, all of the classics give you that warm fuzzy feeling like it's the first time you're watching them. Pop one in to watch while in your fort.

3. Eat a Bunch of Cookies and Treats

Bake some cookies to eat. Or don't bake them and just eat the dough. Grab a tub of frosting and just go to down. This time you won't have a parent to yell at you when you get caught.

4. Drink Some Hot Chocolate

The more obnoxious the better! Does it have antlers attached to the hood? Footies? Get all nice and cozy as you wait to wake for the celebration to come.

8. Play in the Snow

If you live in an area that gets snow for the holidays, throw on some snow pants and go play around. Make a snowman, throw some snowballs. If you don't live somewhere with snow see if there's a ski resort somewhere. Indoor or out. Fake snow is will do!
