Blogmas Day 3: Festive Activities

220 Christmas:Title ideas | christmas, christmas clipart, christmas  printables

I am a huge Christmas fan and each year, I always try to figure out ways to make my kids happy. I try to look around at what is happening locally. Whether that be events, Christmas lights, parties, or Church activities. I really love the holidays for this reason, we get to take tons of pictures and make memories.

I can remember a time when I was little when we would have activities and those have been imprinted in my mind. I try to do the same for my kids. Things I remember most are building a ginger bread house, making cookies, looking at Christmas lights, game nights, movies, music, and going to see Santa at the mall. My most memorable time was when we got to see Santa arrive by helicopter.

Now, I’m not sure that I can top Santa arriving on a helicopter, but I can go to enough events that it makes the memories last. It may be early in December but we will do a ton of things this month that will get the kids excited about Christmas.

So, let’s start with our activities and then, I’ll provide a list of ideas that you could do with your family.
