Vlogmas # 16 2016, YouTubers Christmas Hot Tub, Meeting Actual Father Christmas, Party Games with Friends (Playing the Face Masks Name Game and Pass the Snowman) and Making Snow (Magic Snow)
Vlogmas Day 16 NiliPOD Christmas YouTube Video - December 16th
I've been excited to film Vlogmas for pretty much the entire year (thanks in no small part to Zoella / Zoe Sugg - 24 Days of Zoella, Niomi Smart and Tanya Burr) and I will be uploading festive themed vlogs for every day of December, right up until Christmas Day.
This is my 16th Christmas vlog / Vlogmas and features me and my YouTuber friends Evan, Maisie, Annabelle and Kate. We started off giving our Secret Santa gifts (we love playing Secret Santa at Christmas) and we had some lovely presents. Then after opening the advent calendars, it was time to get ready for the hot tub.
This is my version of a hot tub hack, which is basically a 10 ft paddling pool that I fill up with really really hot water (it was 42C) and use an air pump for bubbles. It was so 'hot' in the hot tub, but so much fun. The water stays hot for ages, and when it cools down, we just add some more hot water, so that it stays a hot 'hot tub'!
After that, we played some YouTube christmas games for the Vlogmas vlog. These included playing the 'Name Game' with Face Masks of Mary Berry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Trump, Jennifer Lawrence (J-Law) and Taylor Swift. The name game can be quite hard, especially with face masks, but it was so funny and it is perfect for families wanting to play Christmas games. Young children / kids will love this game. Then we played 'Pass the Snowman' with forfeits (a bit like Pass the Parcel), with Christmas music, obviously.
We had a go at making Magic Snow, which is so weird. Magic Snow is basically a white powder and when you add water, it just gets massive and turns into snow. Very magic! Finally, I managed to track down actual Santa Claus and his reindeer, as he was passing by our house on his sleigh to say hello to all of the little children. It's so great to include actual Santa Claus on my Christmas YouTube video, I hoped I'd capture him on this Vlogmas vlog, so I was very excited when he waved at me. Of course, I waved back, while I was vlogging him!!!
Lots of YouTubers, vloggers, children and kids like to film vlogmas themed videos and vlogs for their YouTube channels. My favourites include Zoella (More Zoella / Zoe Sugg) and her daily Vlogmas vlogs, as well as her 24 Days of Zoella Christmas videos. When it comes to YouTube videos, Zoella is basically the queen.
