Holiday Fun, Day 33—Fun activities after the presents are open

After the presents have been opened, there is no need to sit around going stir crazy on Christmas day. From ice skating in Baltimore to getting crafty with leftover wrapping paper — here are five ideas to keep everyone happy.

Go ice skating—It's the perfect activity to get a little exercise before Christmas dinner. The Pandora Ice Rink at Baltimore's Inner Harbor is open Christmas Day from 1-6 p.m. Cost is $10, adults; $9, children and seniors and $4 to rent skates. 

Go for a walk or hike—After the post present crash, there's no better way to lighten the mood than head outside for a walk around your neighborhood or head to a park for a hike. Here are some ideas for family hikes.

Do some baking—Now that all the shopping, decorating and present opening is done, it's a great time to bake. Make some Peanut butter cup brownies or Carrot Cake Cheesecake Bars to have for dessert.

Make something crafty with the leftover wrapping paper – Here are cool some ideas from Buzzfeed and some wrapping paper crafts for kids.

Check out the lights—Once the sun goes down, go for a drive and check out the lights in your neighborhood and beyond. If you want something more structured—both Lights on the Bay at Sandy Point State Park and Symphony of Lights in Columbia are open Christmas night.
