Let’s be honest, the holidays can be hectic. Planning and preparation take up a lot of time this month and it can be hard to stop to consider fun activities. Here are a few ways you can have a wonderful holiday season with your kids this year.

The Lights!

The little bugs really enjoy holiday lights. Who are we kidding? We love the lights, too! Simple things often make the biggest impact, like taking an evening drive around a neighborhood with decorated houses.

If you’re interested in something a little bigger, check out some of these options:

Baking

If you’re the baker in the family, the little ones love helping out. Especially with the fun cookie shapes and designs! The kitchen can be a fun place where children can learn and develop important skills, so it’s a great option to create lasting holiday memories.

Donate To Charity

Little ones love getting gifts each year, but it’s nice to share an experience of giving, too! There are many charities that help children, including Toys for Tots.

Make a special day where your family buys a toy for a child in need and then donate it. Who knows? It might be the start of a great tradition!

Holiday Activities

There are plenty of fun things you can do in your own neighborhood during the winter. Building snowmen and forts, making snow angels, and sledding come to mind!

Here are a few more options if you’re interested in going on a festive adventure:

  • Keep bedtime routines as normal as possible
  • Prioritize downtime when you have a lot of events
  • Try getting in healthy meals to counter the sugar overload
