Bodies migrate from the kitchen to the TV room, teenagers are allowed out of the house again, and the days grow strangely idle as holiday vacation wears on.
To keep from idle hands—or, God forbid, reading and resting—here are 8 DIYs that are perfectly suited for an afternoon of lazy post-holiday vacation. Leave them behind with your loved ones or take them back to New York when you retreat.
