Keeping kids busy during December


Christmas time can make anyone antsy and especially kids have way more energy than they know what to do with. Start a family night with an activity that everyone enjoys or a distraction for them so you can get baking or wrapping done.

Movie Night
Pick a favorite Christmas movie, some popcorn, and some goodies.

Snowman Bowling
Game time! Stack water bottles or empty cans. Use a small ball to roll the ball. Create a “lane” with blankets.

Picnic by the Tree
Everyone enjoys the Christmas Tree, but let’s do a dinner night in front of the tree! Spread out a blanket and have a picnic.

Christmas Cookies

You bake - they decorate! Everyone wins. Share some with neighbors and friends for some holiday cheer.

Christmas Cards
Write a Christmas card to grandma and grandpa or a close friend. Get out the art supplies and get creative.

Hot Cocoa Party
Make some cocoa and pull out some goodies too! Flavored syrups, marshmallows, candy canes, and whipped cream too! Yum.
