You can try to take a Christmas photo every year, after many years, put them together, you will get a different touch and surprise!


4.Write Letters to Santa

How does Santa look like behind his thick beard? How does Santa get around the whole world in one night? How do Santa’s elves make enough toys for four billion kids? A kid might have a lot of questions about Santa. Why can’t they write a letter directly to Santa? On Christmas holidays, you can prepare a pencil and a paper for your kids and make them write down their questions to Santa.


5.Make Sugar Cookies

Depending on how old your child is, they may be able to help you make the cookie batter. Let them decide if they want to add in chocolate chips, coconut, cinnamon, and even food coloring. Pick out some holiday-themed cookie cutters and let your child play pastry chef. If you have any leftover candy from the gingerbread house decorating, be sure to add them to the sugar cookies.


6.Listen to Christmas Songs

This at-home Christmas activity is really quiet. Whether you tune in to a holiday-specific radio station or find a holiday-themed channel on an internet-streaming service, you can rest assured knowing there are plenty of options for Christmas songs around the clock. If you play a musical instrument like piano, you could learn a few Christmas songs and sing along as you play for your children.


7.Decorate A Gingerbread House

As you walk through the store you’re bound to see the gingerbread house which is really expensive. Instead of taking purchase from an expensive store, buy your own supplies and make your own gingerbread houses! You can teach your children how to make this gingerbread house on their own. And then have this special dessert altogether.


8.Go Ice Skating with Family

Sports take an important place in most families. On Christmas holidays, we eat and sit to watch movies or play computer games. We got happiness but at the same time, fat is waiting for us. So go outside (Be careful not to go to crowded places) and go ice skating with your family on Christmas! Keeping a healthy lifestyle is also important for a family.


9.Build A Snowman

Building a snowman is one of the most classic and fun Christmas activities to make a part of your family traditions. If you have snow on the ground, this might be a fun activity to get the kids involved in. Arm them with some carrots, charcoal, twigs, and clothing like hats, scarves, and mittens and see what their creative minds come up with. Besides building a snowman, you can also take a snowball fight by throwing snow at others to play in the snow world.


10.Drink Hot Chocolate and See Christmas Lights

You can’t go wrong with a cup of hot chocolate and a trip around the neighborhood to check out Christmas lights.  Whether you decide to take a walk or bundle up in the car in your pajamas, you’re sure to get in the holiday spirit. Make it even better by playing Christmas music while you drive around!
