Christmas is an exciting time of year that a lot of people look forward to. While Christmas may seem more magical and enchanting when you are a child, the excitement doesn’t have to dwindle as you get older.
No matter what mobility issues you suffer, there are a plethora of ways to get into the Christmas spirit to enjoy the festive period just as you always have.
Here are the most amazing accessible Christmas activities to try this year to unleash your inner child and get yourself excited for Christmas.
From sparkling Christmas lights to toasty cream-topped hot chocolates, London’s Winter Wonderland is a popular highlight for many people’s Christmas.
This enchanting Winter Wonderland has been designed with plenty of accessible features in mind. Disabled access ramps, accessible toilets and allocated disabled car parking are all available at Winter Wonderland. There is even a wheelchair-accessible pod on the big wheel!
Ice skating is one of the most popular activities to take part in over the Christmas period. Rather than sitting on the sidelines spectating, wheelchair ice skating allows you to join in with everyone else and whizz around the ice rink.
Most ice rinks welcome wheelchair users to enjoy the fun so it shouldn’t be a problem to add this fun activity to your festive to-do list.
What better way to get into the festive spirit than to go Christmas shopping? With plenty of accessible features including lifts, ramps and first aid facilities, shopping centres are a safe, warm and inclusive place to have fun this Christmas.
There are plenty of accessible shopping centres dotted around the UK, so chances are there is a good one near you!
From sweet-smelling cinnamon rolls to crumbly mince pies, food is a big part of what makes Christmas so great.
Baking gingerbread men, candy cane-shaped biscuits or mince pies is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with friends and family while getting into the Christmas spirit.
There are plenty of online recipes with simple step-by-step instructions for every kind of delicious Christmas-themed treat you can imagine. You could also get creative and host a gingerbread house competition with friends and family to see who can bake the most beautiful gingerbread house.
We hope that this blog proves that those suffering from mobility issues can enjoy an enriching activity-packed Christmas, filled with love and laughter.
With a stairlift, you can enjoy more exciting experiences by reserving your stamina for the activities you love.
