Christmas Activities for Children

I’m so excited that Mason has this entire week off. While I still have a decent amount to do in order to prepare for Christmas I love having him home. I miss him a ton when he is in school and I know that while he’s having fun he misses us too or at least the activities we do! I wanted to make sure that we spent this entire week doing fun Christmas-y stuff. I want the week of Christmas to be magical for my littles. Christmas was always so fun for me growing up and I want that for my kids too.

In order to help facilitate that I’ve been looking up Christmas activities for children and have a craft, activity or event planned for every day this week. I’m not sure we’ll get to everything on my list but we’ll try! Another thing I didn’t mention here because I forgot to take a picture was that Target had these Wooden Gingerbread houses in the dollar spot that came with white puffy paint and stickers. Their elves brought them this morning and they had a blast decorating them. Best part? There was minimal clean up and it wasn’t a struggle putting it together!

Christmas Party Favors

 

A note on these, while I did them as “Christmas Party Favors” they’re a super fun craft to make for the kids. all it takes is mod podge, a mason jar, tissue paper and some scissors if you want to make Christmas shapes. They make fun handmade gifts and hold up really well!
