Christmas Kids Activities: 3 Fun Activities
Christmas Kids Activities: 3 Fun Activities for Christmas Eve
1. Fill a Special Christmas Eve Box
Only to be opened on Christmas Eve, prepare a special box that is festively decorated for the kids and why not for the adults, too! Pack the box with items that will warm everyone’s hearts and add to the cozy feeling of this special evening. Add new pajamas with a seasonal theme, cozy slippers, some special-this-time-of-the-year snacks and drinks, a CD with Christmas Carols, a Christmas story book or a wonderful Christmas movie to enjoy together. Consider putting in some fun holiday color sheets or a Christmassy board game that you can play together. Another fun idea is to fill the box with some craft items to make some beautiful ornaments to add to the Christmas tree or to make some wintery decorations. You can involve the kids even more by asking them to fill or decorate the Christmas Eve’s boxes for each other or the parents.
2. Organize a Christmas Eve Scavenger Hunt
It’s easy to add some adventure to the Christmas Eve by organizing a fun Scavenger Hunt. Hide several seasonal items around the house, each one pointing to another one with creative clues like rhymes or puzzles, until the kids find the “prize”, which could be a gift or a treat. Another way to organize it is to print out some Christmassy items that the kids should spot, either inside the house, or if you’re up to it, outside of it. Whoever spots all the items or the most, can choose the next thing the family should do on this special evening.
3. Santa Cookie and Reindeer Food Preparation Station
Set up a Station with all necessary items to decorate cookies for Santa and to mix food for the reindeers that will be tired from all the gift-bringing this evening. It’s thoughtful and fun, not to mention that everybody gets to taste Santa’s cookies – just to make sure they’ re tasty, of course!
