Come Christmas there are plenty of exciting things to plan about. For some Christmas is the time to bring out the old traditions and for the others, it is the only time of the year when they get to spend time with their family. It is that time of the year when you get your long vacation to do all the things you love doing. You could try out some of the unique ideas from that weblink you stumbled upon or you could simply let your creativity flow. After all, Christmas is all about happy times. There are plenty of Christmas things that you could do like setting up the Christmas tree and preparing the lavish dinner for the Christmas Eve and then there are the non-Christmasy things to do to make the vacation a memorable one. I have put together an assortment of such ideas that can make Christmas more fun for the whole family.
Bring a tradition
One of the best things to do if you have friends coming over is to learn new Christmas traditions. Different parts of the world have different traditions for Christmas. Learning new traditions and trying them out can be so much fun and it helps make Christmas even more enjoyable.
Bake a cake
Baking a cake is something that you would definitely be doing before Christmas. I am talking about bringing the whole family together in the process! Let the kids whip up the ingredients together. Let the older kids handle the decoration of the cakes and cupcakes. The adults can take care of the platter display arrangements. This is just a glimpse of what it would look like when the whole family bakes together.
Create your Christmas tree décor pieces
Instead of choosing store bough décor accents for the Christmas tree, involve the kids and create some unique pieces of décor. Add a personal touch in every branch, a souvenir to denote every member in the family.
‘Do you want to build a snowman?’
If you are fortunate to be residing in a place where there is good snow during Christmas take the kids out for some Christmas snowman building fun. After all, Christmas is never complete without snow!
Let out that inner pirate in you
Instead of placing the Christmas gifts beneath the tree as you usually would, put together an interesting treasure hunt activity. You can even draft a map instead of clues to help the younger kids hunt for their gifts.
