Whether they end up with precise holiday designs or colorful Picasso-like scribbles, each work is a thoughtful masterpiece to be proud of.
Plan a family photoshoot
Embrace the holiday spirit with a themed family photoshoot. Whichever theme you decide on, make sure to include props, experiment with wardrobes and make it as unique as possible. The more creative, the better! Share the joy by posting your photo in your social media account or send them to your friends as your Christmas greeting. Plus points for those who would print them out as post cards, write notes on them for distant relatives and friends and send them via snail mail.
Bake unique Christmas cookies
Create heartwarming memories in the kitchen by baking cookies or other holiday goodies. Let your littles ones participate in choosing what to bake. Let your little helper do the pouring of ingredients and mixing of the batter. It may be a little bit messy, but they will appreciate the trust and responsibility as they play pastry chef for the day. You can serve the cookies in your holiday gathering or even give them as presents!
Write letters to Santa
Writing letters to Santa can be a cherished tradition. Encourage your kids to pen down their holiday wishes and watch the magic unfold on Christmas morning as you make their dreams come true.
