1. Have a cookie decorating party. This is a fun family tradition in my home. Take cookies or treats to your local police station, fire house and ambulance stations.
2. Christmas movie marathon. Watch the classics and new ones too!
3. Make your own wrapping paper. Try white tissue paper or brown paper bags using commercial stamps or a design cut onto a potato. Children love to stamp, but they may want to paint or color, too.
4. Read Christmas stories each night before bed. The stories can be above a child’s reading level if you read them out loud.
5. Go Christmas caroling. Afterward, enjoy hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.
6. Drive around and look at Christmas lights. Research ahead of time any wonderful displays and must sees!
7. Study how other countries and cultures celebrate Christmas. This is a great way to teach children about other cultures.
8. Get a picture with Santa!
9. Make apple cider or eggnog and spend time together just talking.
10. Listen to Christmas music and write cards to one another to open on Christmas.
