Camp Out Under the Christmas Tree

The night after you’ve finished decorating the Christmas tree, let the kids camp out on the living-room floor with the tree lit up. This will really get them in the Christmas spirit!

Make Reindeer Food

Cookies and milk are the classic Santa snacks, but he’s not the only one working hard Christmas night! Help your kids make sure the reindeer get fed too by mixing oats with glitter and sprinkling it out on the yard, the sparkle makes it easy for the reindeer to find.

New Year’s Prediction Jar

On Christmas, have everyone write down their predictions for next year in their own or someone else’s lives and place them in a jar. Next Christmas you can open it up and see if any predictions came true.

Candy Cane Countdown

Let the kids count down to Christmas with candy canes or another Christmas treat. Fill a jar with candy and/or other holiday goodies and let them have a piece each day through December 25th.

A Christmas Eve Present

Have one present that the kids can open on Christmas Eve. A great idea is to wrap up a new pair of Christmas-themed pajamas, popcorn, and a Christmas movie they can watch before bed!
