10 Christmas Activities With Kids (Activities and Ideas!)

Christmas is amazing and seeing it through kids eyes is pretty darn awesome ... mainly because you can do all of the cheesy things without feeling like you're too old for it!

We made a gingerbread house the other day for example, only the second time in my life I've done that! Of course it was ALL FOR THE KIDS

(move over girls you're messing up my perfect icing application)


Here are some other ideas to enjoy this holiday season!

1) Vintage printable coloring pages! Free - just click here, and extra points if you print them off on your office printer and use company paper.

2) Portable North Pole.  FREE personalized message from Santa to your children, niece, nephew, whoever! HERE and worth the few minutes to create. We've shown this to the girls every single Christmas and it's magical.

3) Call Santa and leave a voicemail! Especially works if the kids are screaming in the car and you can tell them that you're going to let Santa listen in. //so I've heard// ;-)  (319)527-2680

4) Make a Christmas sampler platter for your kids of all of the holiday staples -- fruitcake, ribbon candy, egg nog, hot cocoa with marshmallows and a candy cane!

5) Make a handprint Christmas wreath! Idea and instructions HERE from My Name Is Snickerdoodle.

6) Drive around in jammies and look at the pretty Christmas lights! We have a gorgeous home around the corner from us and they go ALL out, including Santa chatting with kids out front!

7) Make Christmas-themed slime. Recipe HERE

8) Choose a name from the Angel tree and talk about why Christmas is about giving and thinking about others. If this isn't an option, have each child pick out a few toys to donate and drop them off at your charity of choice. Jackets, gloves, and hats are also appreciated donations this chilly time of year. 

9) Buy a can of fake snow and paint your windows when the kids are sleeping. 

10) Bake cookies for neighbors and let the kids attach some art to the tin!

Would love to hear your ideas as well. Five more days!

  2. I love these ideas! I'll have to try that handprint wreath with my daughter next year, as it would be adorable for the grandparents!

  3. So many fun options! I laughed at your perfectly applied gingerbread icing comment. I had to simmer down when we were making ours because I was trying to alternate colors and do patterns. My kids just wanted to add all the candy everywhere. We've had the best time making jingle bell wreaths and Christmas tree playdoh. I'm hoping to squeeze in a little more holiday baking this week.

  4. Great list! I'm convinced that the holidays are the ultimate test for a perfectionist mom (like me). :)

  5. Every year, I buy a box of candy canes and attach an uplifting message to each one. Then I take the boys to the mall or a shopping center and tell them to hand them out to whomever they think could use some Christmas cheer. It's always fun to see the joy on people's faces when they get an unexpected surprise from a child. :)
