Tis the season to be jolly! Christmas is a time of laughter, joy and creating unforgettable memories. Get ready for a sleigh full of fun and festivity through the following Christmas traditions set to make your holiday season extra special.
Santa’s Snail Mail Station:
Set up a designated spot in your home where children can write their letters to Santa. Provide colourful paper, crayons and stickers to add that extra touch of creativity. Encourage them to share their wishes, dream and even a little about their year. Afterward, seal the letters in envelopes addressed to “Santa Clause, The North Pole” and send them off. The excitement of receiving a reply from Santa is sure to light up their faces!
Deck the Halls (Doors and Windows!):
Turn your home into a Christmas wonderland by involving the children in decorating. Give them their own ornaments or craft supplies to create personalised decorations for the tree. Let them hang stockings, garlands and have a blast placing twinkling lights around the house. For an extra touch of magic, consider letting them choose a special ornament each year that represents something significant from that time in their lives.
Gingerbread houses are a timeless holiday tradition. Bake or purchase a gingerbread house kit and let your little architects’ imaginations run wild! Provide an assortment of colourful lollies, sprinkles and icing for them to decorate their very own gingerbread masterpiece. This tasty activity is a perfect blend of creativity and yummy treats!
Cosy Christmas Storytime:
Create a special holiday tradition of reading Christmas stories together. Whether it’s the classic ‘The night before Christmas’ or newer tales like ‘The polar express’, cuddling up with a good book is a magical way to spend time together. Encourage children to take turn reading or acting out the characters for some added fun.
Christmas Movie Marathon:
There are a plethora of great Christmas movies that are sure to get you and your children in the holiday spirit. Set aside a day or week each December to marathon a few films to get your children excited every year… whilst also giving you a chance to put your feet up!
Make Christmas Eve Extra Special:
With Santa on the way, your families own unique traditions on Christmas Eve will be a hit. Make dinner extra special, leave our cookies and carrots for the reindeers and play some Christmas themed games.
With these delightful Christmas traditions, you’ll create a magical holiday season filled with cherished memories, love and laughter. The joy in your child’s eyes will be the best gift of all! So, let the festivities begin and may your Holidays be merry and bright! Happy Christmas.
