Fun activities for upcoming holiday season!

With MU’s November and December breaks quickly approaching, Mizzou students and faculty are about to have a lot of free time on their hands. If you are looking for some fun and simple activities to fill your days with, here are a few DIY articles perfect for your open schedules.


Homecoming Coloring book: This book is a collection of pages taken from past editions of the Savitar (University of Missouri’s yearbook from 1894-2005), pages from the Missouri Outlaw (a student magazine), and Showme Magazine. All of these pages are Mizzou-themed, so break out your favorite black and gold crayons and get to coloring!


Color Our Collections: This is a collection of projects curated by MU Special Collections for their #ColorOurCollections project. It features images from separate books that offer fun and unique coloring challenges.


Bookmarks: Special Collections offers a series of printable bookmarks perfect for a quick coloring activity that gives you a nice placeholder for your current read.


Youth Gardening: MU Extensions offers a small collection of Youth Gardening activities available on MOspace. The weather is cooling down and perfect for the “Winter Sowing Seeds” activity. Save other activities for Spring which is just a couple of months away! All of these are easy and fun projects perfect for kids or beginner gardeners.



Holiday Recipes: With the holiday season fast approaching, it is the perfect time to try out some easy and cheap recipes to wow your family and friends with this November and December. MOspace offers plenty of recipes and articles that are great for this time of year, but this article contains three recipes for dishes that the author describes as: easy to fix, great tasting and good for your family. There are also several side dishes listed.


We hope you found at least one activity to try during your break. Let us know what else you try on our Instagram and Twitter accounts @MuSpecColl.
