Instead of... Heading to the Beach

Upset that you can’t spend the day working on your tan? Live vicariously through your favorite Christmas cookies. Use Skittles and M&M’s to give your gingerbread men bathing suits. After baking them, lay them on colorful napkins, their "beach towels," and stick them underneath drink umbrellas in order to shield them from the "sun." While they sunbathe, spend a little time playing in the "sand." Use the colorful sands available at craft stores to create interesting pieces of art. All of this baking and crafting making you thirsty? Sip on a Sex on the Beach. Or mix together some other fruity cocktails like strawberry daiquiris and piña coladas — or maybe you should only drink piña coladas if you actually like getting caught in the rain.
