We are now just a couple of months away from December, and that means it’s nearly Christmas time! The holiday season is the best time of the year, especially if you have kids. If you want to get the most out of this season, then here are some fun things you should do with your kids at Christmas:
Bake A Gingerbread House
When the holiday season approaches it can only mean one thing; it’s time to get baking. There’s something about Christmas that just inspires you to get in the kitchen and bake some delicious treats. So, if you love baking, and you love your children, why not combine the two! Bring your children to the kitchen and get them baking with you. An all time classic family baking project is a gingerbread house. Get to work baking the gingerbread and then forming and decorating the house with your kids. It’s a classic Christmas idea that’s wonderful fun for the family.

Go On A Winter Holiday
If you fancy doing something different this Christmas, why not go on a winter holiday?! Holiday’s don’t have to be taken in the summer; there are some great ideas for winter ones too. You could go to snowy Finland and visit Santa Claus in Lapland. Seeing Santa is just one of many family activity suggestions for your winter holiday. If you have some time off work during December, why not turn this Christmas into something a bit more special? Kids love going on holiday; it can really up the Christmas cheer!
Visit The Christmas Markets
It’s around November/December time when the Christmas markets start popping up around the country. This presents the perfect opportunity for a little family outing! If there’s a market near you, take your kids one evening and have a good old wander. No doubt there will be lots of freshly made Christmas treats for them to enjoy, and maybe even a Santa Claus sighting. If anything, a trip to the Christmas markets will fill you all with the Christmas spirit and get your kids in the mood for the big day. If there aren’t markets near you, then why not make it a weekend thing and visit the big ones in London!

Decorate The Christmas Tree
This is something that every parent needs to do with their kids come Christmas time. Decorating the tree with your children is something that never gets old. It’s just amazing seeing the joy on their face as they hang things up and drape the tinsel around it. Then there’s the special moment when you let them put the star on the top to crown your tree. You’ll then take a step back and watch in wonder as you flick a switch, and the lights go on. If you only get to do one thing on this list, make sure this is it.
Christmas is a time of year that you should cherish having children. They won’t be young for long! Before you know it, they’ll be packing their bags and moving out. So, make the most of them while you can!
