Go on a walk, explore Christmas food from around the world. It’s all about having fun crafting and drawing. Christmas art can take your imagination to places you haven’t considered. For your artsy-craftsy kids, these activities will be so enjoyable. 

Games To Play At Home For Christmas 

Family game night, movie night  & read alouds! Yep, that makes for a bundle of fun on cold winter evenings when everyone is done sledding skiing, and building snowmen.

Literature & Languages

Who doesn’t love a good book to read and learn about over the winter months? A Christmas themed book is always enjoyable at any age. Are your kids curious about what Christmas was like ‘in olden times’? Maybe they are already studying Shakespeare and Dickens and it just makes sense to enjoy learning about Christmas in Medieval or Victorian England. These resources, and a few more covering literature and languages, are perfect for the whole family to enjoy together.

Cooking & Planning

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without planning, baking & cooking up a storm, is it? Make being at home for Christmas memorable by carving out some time for baking and having fun in the kitchen or making gifts together. If your kids are ready to have fun in the kitchen with you or you want to re-focus & intentionally prepare for a meaningful Christmas season with your family, these recipes and planners will help you make it the best Christmas ever. 

Crafts & Gift Ideas

Finally, craft and gifts ideas are always good to have on hand. Grandparents and relatives love receiving gifts from family members that are keepsakes. Homemade ornaments, acts of service, and quality time together are perfect gifts to give.
